TrueCommand has several multisystem management capabilities with more in development for future releases.
TrueCommand 2.0 added cluster capability, as well as applying TrueNAS configurations to multiuple systems at once.
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 with the settings you want to apply to other TrueNAS units.
Click on the system name for a TrueNAS server to open the single system view.
Click Config Backups to open the Config Backup window.
The Configuration Backup window displays a list of backups with the time and date of their creation.
Set the checkbox for the config to restore and click theRestore icon.
Click ADD SYSTEM to select a system that the config file restores.
You can add more servers as needed.
After choosing the systems, click CONFIRM to upload the config backup to the selected TrueNAS systems.
To access the System Inventory page, click the Gear icon and select System Inventory.
To download a comma deliminated .CVS file for the current inventory page, click CVS in the upper-right area of the screen.
There are three categories of inventory information:
System provides information on the Manufacturer, the Serial numbers of the controllers, the system’s Support Tier, the support Contract’s expiration date, the Hostname of the active controller, the CPU, the number of CPU Cores, the amount of Physical Memory, what **OS the system is running, and the Uptime.
Network provides information about the Interface names, Type, Link State and MAC Address.
Storage provides information about the Drives such as Name, Type of drive, Size, Model, Serial Number, and location in the Enclosure.
When creating an iSCSI volume with TrueCommand, you can configure the volume on multiple systems at the same time. Refer to the iSCSI section for more information.
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.
