I made my NAS around April, and had some trouble setting it up, once I got it up and running smooth 12.1 broke it(apparently not so smooth). This guide is by far the best guide and still works in 12.1. I might mix it with another guide on storing configs outside of the jails so if you ever have to remake the jail the configs stay intact, and let sonarr/radarr move/rename files instead sab. But TY so much for this, its great.

Stupid me... So, I went into the CLI for Sabnzbd and installed Sonarr. How do I reverse what I just did?
I just deleted the jail and started over. Everything works as expected. I'll just delete both messages when I'm off probation.

Next if you are using a media front end such as Kodi or Plex, you will want to select client and add what pertains to you. This will enable Sonarr and Radarr to update your library when a download is completed.
I'm not seeing this option. I would like to have Sonarr place the files in a directory outside of the jail. Can you direct me with this?

Nevermind, I think I just had some confusion on how the jails work. I did a test with Sonarr and it moved the file perfectly. Thanks for the great guide.

Had to create an account just so I could comment this amazing step-by-step instructions. Never has a newbie to TrueNAS had it easier.
Now, I just would like to know if there is a way to get the MP4 Automator and Python to work on the NAS and I will be a very happy person

I'm testing this now, but I basically mounted my Plex folder (my media folder) to Sonarr and Radarr to see if that would work. Theoretically it should, but I will see as I am busy getting my data on to the NAS right now.

Did this work for you? I'm currently trying to do the same thing.

Yes this worked. I also had to add user 972 to the ACL

Who: User
User: 972 (Don't worry if it says "Could not find a username for this ID")
ACL Type: Allow
Permissions Type:
Basic Permissions: Full Control
Flags Type: Basic
Flags: Inherit


This made everything work where I could Save/Download from sabnzbd in one folder and then have Sonarr/Radarr move it to my Plex folder. User 972 allowed me to select my Plex folders for Plex to read the shows from.

Awesome guide, got it working the first time.

I got one question, why do the uid and gid have to be the same number? Why is this important?

Thanks again, +1 :)
