After upgrading a couple of FreeNAS servers to 11.3 (without any problems whatsoever I might add), I noticed that replication tasks that have come across in the upgrade are using the LEGACY transport. I understand from reviewing the 11.3 documentation, that other transports enable additional options for replication tasks. Several questions spring to mind:
- Are there any immediate benefits in 'upgrading' replication tasks that use the LEGACY transport to say use the SSH transport instead if those tasks are already working as intended?
- If there are additional immediate or longer-term benefits, is it as simple as editing the existing replication task and selecting SSH in the drop-down menu for the Transport field? If so, does it matter the SSH connection is using a Legacy Replication Key Pair?
- Or should I be creating a new SSH connection, new key pair and new replication tasks to replace the legacy equivalents?
- Am I correct in saying that the SSH+NETCAT transport is only useful in the instance that a high-speed data path exists between servers participating in the replication?
