    general/other [Tips] Preventing console message when switching consoles on virtualised FreeBSD

    I use mac, and today I found something funny. Because I had a lot of things to process on FreeBSD, I used the second console for the first time. However, there was a console message every time I switched the console, and the solution is to enable VT-x on virtual machine settings. On VMWare...

    proxmox Running FreeBSD as a virtual guest with ZFS

    Hi, I've been running Proxmox 6 with ZFS as guest storage for some while now. As guests I have a couple of FreeBSD systems and I plan on expanding the list of FreeBSD guests migrating away from Linux. I once read that it would be counter productive to use ZFS within the FreeBSD guest because...

    Extremely lightweight virtualization of FreeBSD

    Having used macOS, I know "ping -A" will make a beep every time a host is unreachable. It came in handy at times when my internet would act up. I want to do the same, but virtualization of the whole OS is kinda unnecessary. I tried grabbing FreeBSD source code, and individually compiling "ping"...

    general/other Is jails good if I want to have a router and a webserver on the same machine?

    I'd like to use my home server as a router too. Somebody suggested to use ESXI as host and pfsense for routing and FreeBSD for webserver as guests. The reason that if the router is hacked they won't have an easy time hacking the webserver too and because load on the webserver won't slow down my...

    Hi All, I've been doing some testing of my companies real-time kernel modules inside Bhyve, and I noticed that the system complains that it has nested virtualization enabled.

    Hello, I have a physical FreeBSD server I installed using ZFS on root. To ease maintenance I'd like to move it into a virtual machine (VMware ESXi), but since virtualizing ZFS is not recommended, I would like to convert it to UFS. Here's my plan so far, can anyone confirm whether I am on the...
