    Hello, I am not sure what I did, because this computer sits here since 12.1 was new and I was learning at the time. I only boot it once in a month, do backups through LAN, turn it off. Now my problem is this: I wanted to upgrade to 13-RELEASE, but I wanted to do it with boot environments. As I...

    ZFS ZFS boot problem after upgrade to 13.0

    I have a Gen8 HP Microserver with 4x 3TB SATA disks attached via AHCI, in a 4 way mirror. I *think* since I upgraded to 13.0 from 12.2 I've been unable to boot from them. I am able to boot successfully from a USB stick with the live image installed. I've reinstalled the 13.0 bootcode on every...

    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...

Do I change the passphrase by booting into the disk, or booting into the install-disk? And, if I boot into the install-disk, how do I mount the specific partition to change...

    I was having issues keeping the system running. So turned the system off, and ran a memory test, and replaced memory. When I rebooted the pool is unknown, and this is in the log file. Could booting from a CD and Running a memory test mess with the Headers on each drive???? How is that...

    ZFS Replacement of a hard disk in a mirrored, encrypted (geli) root pool

    Hello, please excuse me if there is already an answer to my question. I could not find one. So far my question is hypothetical. I plan to install FreeBSD on an encrypted and mirrored zroot. But before I do this, I want to make sure that in case of a disk failure, I also know how to repair the...

Incremental snapshots use very little diskspace so you can run them easily every 30 minutes. The script below takes such an...

    Encrypting a zfs zvol device with gbde

    Why would you encrypt a zfs zvol device with gbde ? Because you can, and it is easy. 1.You stay away from system,boot&root partitions so you don't have boot problems. 2. Most private data is relative small. And fits in one directory with subdirectories. Note : zfs allows encryption by itself but...

    ZFS ZFS and Hotswap Indicator LEDs?

    This may be a dumb question, but when a hotswap drive in a server fails under ZFS does the LED indicating a drive failure come on for that drive? Another question: can hotswap drives simply be replaced under ZFS to have it handle replicating the data, or are manual actions required within the...
