is there a way to get freenas corral iso
That is funny, very funny. There is a comedian born every minute :grin:

Gosh I hope you were joking :eek: But if you were serious here is a link, I feel you should have to work for this one and when you check out the link, you will understand the work required. I could not locate the ISO file itself. https://github.com/freenas/corral-build
You know that you take the ownership for any problems you experience, Corral was a terrible and rushed release. It disappeared almost overnight.

Having still a FreeNAS installed recently and still not configured, I was wondering if it was better to remove FreeNAS and to install already TrueAS Core or whether it is already foreseen that later FreeNAS become a fully TrueNAS Core.

What do you mean by "later FreeNAS become a fully TrueNAS Core"?

FreeNAS is TrueNAS Core. Version 11.3 is called FreeNAS, version 12.0 is renamed TrueNAS Core. They are the same product.

I know the code is the same, but I was wondering if some FreeNAS update was expected to become TrueNAS.
However, I only noticed now that this update is already available and that in fact I am now in TrueNAS.
Thank you.

this dude probably wasn't part of a FreeNAS community back then (meaning - he never experienced the FreeNAS corral fiasco). i still feel traumatized when somebody mentions FreeNAS Corral ;)

I guess if we're taking shots at you, in case you weren't aware, The Release That Must Not Be Named was pulled almost four years ago:

I still don't get why people are so salty about Corral. I was very involved in the testing and bug reporting process and I ran it in the same environment as my current TrueNAS with more or less the same services. Minus jails, of course. The system was rock solid, no problems whatsoever.
And I still think the GUI was groundbreaking. I understand the technical problems with the foundation JS library, but from a user's perspective it was one of the most pleasant to use UIs I ever had.

Well, the 25-page thread I linked above has some clues. I think the short answer is that it was never ready for release, but they shoved it out the door anyway. To give the most egregious (to me, at least) example, you couldn't even replace a disk through the GUI. That's an inexcusable omission in a NAS OS that's designed to be administered through the GUI, and it reflects very poorly on iX' product release process. I'm not certain they've yet shown that they've really learned their lesson from that lesson, but IIRC my thread some time ago asking that question got me banned for a while.

I must have missed that one.
My concern at the time wasn't even so much with that feature, egregious as its omission was--I'm sure it would have been relatively straightforward to code it into the GUI (IIRC, it was in the all-new-and-shiny CLI). It was more with the thought process, from top to bottom, that something as central as that was a secondary issue, a feature that didn't really need to be present (and thoroughly tested) before release.

Edit: And that, of course, is why many of us are pretty skeptical about new major releases--I don't really expect iX are going to pull TN12, but I also didn't expect they'd release it with a showstopper bug that caused uncommanded jail deletion. Maybe with -U1 or -U2...
