TrueCommand has several multisystem management capabilities with more in development for future releases.

Cluster capability has been added with TrueCommand 2.0, as well as applying TrueNAS configurations to multiuple systems at once.

Config Management

TrueCommand can manage TrueNAS Config files. TrueCommand can also restore a single config file to multiple systems.

To apply a config to multiple systems, first create a config backup from the TrueNAS system you with the settings you wish to apply to other TrueNAS units.

Click on the system name for a TrueNAS server to open the Single System view.

iSCSI Management

When creating an iSCSI Volume with TrueCommand, the volume can be configured on multiple systems at the same time. Refer to the iSCSI section for more information.

Cluster Managemnet

By definition, clusters span across multiple systems. TrueCommand instances that are connected to three or more TrueNAS SCALE systems can create clustered volumes. Refer to the Clustering section for more information.
