TrueNAS 11.2-U8.1 is a hotpatch release that fixes issues with the error reporting system and ALUA port detection. TrueNAS 11.2-U8 documentation continues to apply to TrueNAS 11.2-U8.1.

iXsystems is pleased to announce the availability of TrueNAS 11.2-U8! This is primarily a bug fix release to address some remaining issues in the 11.2-STABLE train and prepare TrueNAS users for an important incoming change to AD/LDAP connectivity when using Microsoft Windows.

Before updating, contact iXsystems Technical Support for a pre-update health check and to answer any technical questions regarding this update. You can contact Support by calling 1-855-GREP-4-iX or emailing support@ixsystems.com.

Known Impacts

The default ACL on new Windows datasets was changed from:

owner@:rwxpDdaARWcCos:fd:allow group@:rwxpDdaARWcCos:fd:allow everyone@:rxaRc:fd:allow


owner@:rwxpDdaARWcCos:fd:allow group@:rwxpDdaARWcCos:fd:allow everyone@::fd:allow

This means that world is no longer being granted read privileges by default on newly created SMB shares. If you need to add “read” to “world” on a newly-created dataset, run the command:

setfacl -m everyone@:rxaRc:fd:allow /mnt/path/to/dataset

Known Issues

TrueNAS NFSv4 exports do not work in a VMWare cluster at this time. NFSv3 will need to be used as a work-around.

The hubiC cloud service has suspended creation of new accounts.

The Mega cloud service is currently broken. The new version of rclone which fixes this will be available in 11.3.

When performing an update on HA systems, the “Apply Pending Updates” button does not apply the update. Instead, select the “Check Now” option.

If the email address configured in Services > S.M.A.R.T. > Email differs from the root user email address configured in Account > Users, only the root user email address will receive an email alert when there is a S.M.A.R.T. failure. If these email addresses need to differ, the workaround is to configure System > Alert Services.
