The upgrade was delayed for nearly a month because of a broken Seagate EXOS HDD resulting in a service nightmare with Seagate
(why I won't buy Seagate HDDs anymore you can find here )

Now everything is working again and today I decided to upgrade. Saved my config frist, then my encryption keys, my recovery keys and my HDD password, downloaded the update, reboot and... yes! Successfully upgraded from 11.3-U5 to 12.0-U1 :smile:

Had to upgrade my ZFS pools and of course did the renaming from FreeNas to TrueNAS in my network settings... :wink:

This is my next step as well. Maybe this weekend, still nervous to make the jump.
