1. backup data to another device (external hdd, different server, etc)
2. install FreeNAS
3. set up your zpools, datasets, zvols, shares, etc
4. copy data back
5. enjoy

@pirateghost lets take this a step further; and my question is the same one; the CIFS/SAMBA shares sure no problem. The block storage is the question; what if we have openfiler up and running and want to replace it wholesale for freeNAS is it possible to move the external block storage and migrate the targets without destroying the data?

Thanks in advance
Scott
