Hello,

Spent last weekend building a Supermicro Atom C3558 freenas 11.0 box. So my sum total freebsd experience is an UEFI install to a flash drive on the front USB 2.0 port and 3 or 4 boots.

I have no ip for the web interface. I just pasted a bunch of my notes below. Any advise or pointing out an applicable help link would be greatly appreciated. Assume that I make basic mistakes.

If this is a hardware support problem I surmise that freenas 11.1 is required. Is installing this RC a bad idea? Is it difficult to transition to the stable release?

Best regards,

no freenas netwok interface notes:

dhcp sever sets freenas box ip as 10.0.0.50

freenas box post screen shows "bmc ip: 10.0.0.50"

freenas boot screen notes:
Code:
pci6: <acpi pci bus> on pcib6
pci6: <network, ethernet> at device 0.0 (no driver attached)
pci6: <network, ethernet> at device 0.1 (no driver attached)
...
pci6: <acpi pci bus> on pcib7
pci6: <network, ethernet> at device 0.0 (no driver attached)
pci6: <network, ethernet> at device 0.1 (no driver attached)
...
pmc: unknown intel cpu
...
etc/rc: warning: failed to start nginx



no ip for web interface at freenas console setup screen


in file /usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf:
server_name localhost;
listen 0.0.0.0:80;

Post the output of ifconfig.
No need, C3000 NICs are broken in 11.0. 11.1 has the updated driver which is said to work well.

For now, I'd suggest 11.1-RC3. It has a few... interesting bugs that are still being taken care of, but they shouldn't apply to your case since you're not upgrading.

Thanks for the confirmation about the drivers. I'll check this Saturday and use the most current version of 11.1 to test out the rig.
