  1. Other Recommended file system for virtualization cluster

    Environment: FreeBSD 11.1R, 10Gbx2 Ethernet(LACP), 8GBx2 FC(multipath) I want to build a FreeBSD virtualization cluster with 5+ hosts. Because bhyve doesn't support live migration at this time, Xen(Dom0) is the unique method. The simplest topology looks like: Server2 ... Server9...
  2. Where is official documentation for "jail.conf"?

    Since the several past releases, we had been been getting this message: /etc/rc.d/jail: WARNING: Per-jail configuration via jail_* variables is obsolete. Please consider migrating to /etc/jail.conf. I had been keeping watch on the jails documentation for a few years and still couldn't see...

    Solved FreeBSD 11 NAT hanging under VMware Fusion...

    This is a PSA to save future travelers some angst. Specifically, TCP connections would stall randomly after transferring a modest amount of data (i.e. >5MB xfer per TCP stream). As mentioned in my Discussion post to the VMware Fusion Forums, after much consternation, hand-wringing, and...

  6. Passthrough of GPU into FreeBSD VM

    Hi, Not so sure about the appropriate forum for this question, but it's mostly a GPU/Driver related question… I'm running a multi-OS/multi-headed workstation based upon VMware ESXi (5.5 for now). It sports multiple Radeon GPUs and USB controllers. I'm running few guest VMs: an old OSX desktop...
  7. Networking Structure for VM Host

    Hello, I'm currently running a server based on FreeBSD 10.3. I'm using jails to separate all the running services. Since I only have one public IPv4 address, I use PF and a nginx-proxy to redirect to the specific jails inside the NAT. My plan is to use 11.0 and it's enhanced bhyve features to...

    KVM - FreeBSD Guest

    Hi, I am trying to run FreeBSD as a guest on KVM (Ubuntu). I am wanting to try to mount a folder using the Filesystem config but I can't seem to find anything that definitively says that FreeBSD supports 9p mounts. If you run the mount command it says "Operation not supported by device"
