Installation Instructions

This section provides instructions for users that are installing TrueNAS SCALE the first time on their own system hardware, and for users that need to do a clean install of SCALE.

TrueNAS SCALE Enterprise customers should contact iXsystem Support for assistance with the initial set up and configuration of their systems.

The installation process covers installing SCALE using an iso. TrueNAS SCALE uses DHCP to provide the system IP address. After that, either use the Console setup menu to reconfigure the primary network interface with a static IP address or use the SCALE UI to make network changes and complete the initial configuration.

Finally, it covers backing up your system configuration to a file and saving an initial system debug file.

If you plan to use this TrueNAS SCALE system as part of a cluster, complete the configuration process and then save the system configuration file. Then set up TrueCommand to manage your TrueSCALE systems. To set up clusters of TrueNAS SCALE systems use TrueCommand to create and manage the cluster and nodes.
