Thanks, I just did it, but only one of 3 jails upgraded to 12.2-RELEASE. For FAMP and Plex, it stays at 12.1:

Code:
Branch 12.2-RELEASE does not exist at https://github.com/freenas/iocage-plugin-plexmediaserver.git!
Using "master" branch for plugin, this may not work with your RELEASE


Maybe it's because these jails are plugins. Anyway as long as it's running fine, and I can update Plex it's OK for me.

Updated from 11.3-U5 to 12.0. Before upgrade I shut down manually created jails (plex, transmission) and one VM, cleaned up snapshots and made a new one for reference. I also exported jails just in case. Upgrade went smoothly and fast. Jails and VM start running normally. UI feels much more responsive and fast!

What I did notice is I couldn't reach SMB shares for some reason. After some research on forum, I found out I need to enable NetBIOS-NS in Network / Global configuration. This helped a little, but still couldn't access any share. After some more research I notice you cannot access share as a root user by default, which I was using most of the time. I quickly updated ACL permissions for my users and everything start working normally as expected.

A follow-up on my previous post: While everything seemed to go well, the bridges/VLANs for jails (plugins)I had created under FreeNAS 11.3-U5 no longer appear to work correctly under TrueNAS Core 12.0-RELEASE. It appears to be a gateway issue (e.g., the jail can ping other nodes on the subnet even outside of the TrueNAS server, host lookups, etc. will not work even if the external DNS can be pinged). I'm working on rebuilding the network and jails to see if this makes a difference.

I tried updating my Ubiquiti jail .. and it failed I forget how far into it .. :confused:
Any luck later on with the UniFi/Ubiquiti jail on TrueNAS 12? It looks like the UniFi pkg version was updated to v6 last week so not sure if that fixes anything.

So far everything else in my TrueNAS Core 12 upgrade seems to have gone well, but I've held off on upgrading the pool and the Ubiquiti jail for now. Emby, Sonarr, Radarr jails seem to have upgraded without any issues.
