Update From CORE to SCALE Fails (TrueNAS CORE in VirtualBox VM)


Jan 27, 2016
Hi everyone!

Figured it would be best to build a CORE VM with Plex and Syncthing jails to attempt a migration from CORE to SCALE so I can practice screwing up the future change from Jails to TrueChart apps. :smile:

Got the VM working correctly with data residing in Plex and Syncthing jails ...

Did the migration from CORE to SCALE using this guide ....

1 - Install/Upgrade
2 - Selected Disk to install SCALE on (sda ... 32 GB VBOX HD)
3 - Upgrade Install
4 - Install in new boot environment
5 - Proceed with upgrade (warning about installing into existing zpool on sda)

... and it fails.

Occurred three times. Did a quick search of topics in the forums and didn't see this issue. Trying to determine if I am special or if I found a bug.

umount: /mnt: not mounted
/dev/: is a directory
/dev/: is directory

proceeded to extracting files .... post-install tasks .... and it then fails ...

Granted this may be an artifact of me doing this in VirtualBox ... or screwing up the initial install in VIrtualbox .....

I can shutdown the VM, drop the CDROM down the boot priority and it will boot back into CORE successfully off of sda.

What did I screw up?

Thanks again!
