    ZFS Can disks in a pool be replaced with smaller drives?

    I currently have a system with 12x 5TB 2.5" HDDs. Due to a batch of cheap/faulty SATA cables, one of these drives failed hard (and was replaced), and a couple of the drives are now showing bad sectors. I've replaced the cables and the system is a lot more stable, but since I'll inevitably have...

    Advice when migrating Internet forum from CentOS7 to FreeBSD

    I have an Internet forum (Xenforo software running on nginx, php-fpm, MariaDB, ElasticSearch) and a mail server (dovecot, postfix, and roundcube for the front-end) running on CentOS7. As I've acquired a taste for FreeBSD and also because CentOS7 is EOL by June 2024 (and CentOS8 is already EOL...

    ZFS zfs - Filesystem-Migration - That's right?

    I'm not a newbie on ZFS but I have never used before a RAIDZ2 pool. Now I have migrated two VMs to another host. The capacity on the destination pool has grown by the factor of two :eek: I know that a RAIDZ2 setup needs more capacity but the output of "zfs list" is a little bit curious. I hope...

    How can I create a binary for another BSD system?

    Sometimes you are not allowed (i.e: lack of privileges), you can not (i.e: lack of disk space) or (for any other reason) you don't want to install or compile a program on a FreeBSD system. I was wondering if it is possible to perform the compiling/installing (or whatever) operation on another...

    Migrating Postgresql data directory

    This is my first attempt at a public service post. Sometimes, one discovers that the database directories are better off in a different location than the current/default, e.g. when one decides to use a new zfs partition for the db files. The process of moving the data files needs a bit of...

    bhyve: migrate Windows 7 from physical to virtual?

    Does anybody have experience with this? If I have a physical disk with Windows 7 installed, can I just use its device node for bhyve? I understand that I'll need to install virtio-net drivers in Windows. What else? The generic VGA adapter doesn't need a driver. Windows may not like the hardware...

    Solved Move To New Disk And Combine Filesystems

    I have an old FreeBSD installation that is running out of space. I would like to attach a new disk and migrate to it. I would also like to combine all the separate filesystems /usr, /var, /tmp and so on to a single filesystem /. Is this possible? What is the best approach?

    Moving from ezjail to qjail

    Since ezjail doesn't seem to have been updated for a long time and qjail seems to be a little bit more modern I'm planning to switch. Is it possible to just migrate my existing jails from one manager to the other without problems? Are there any resources about this? Thank you!
