Yay, I actually have a BSD related question. Sort of. I know nothing about BSD. I installed FreeNAS just to try it out. I tried it several years ago and didn’t like it. I’ve been running Fedora with ZFSonLinux since then, but I wanted to try something new.
On that Fedora system the ZFS pool was always degraded because a disk had “too many errors.” I could never really determine if the disk was actually bad because SMART said it was fine.
Anyway, since I installed FreeNAS, whenever I cold boot the server, and all the drives spin up from being off, I see this:
I’m assuming that drive is the one Fedora/ZFSonLinux was complaining about. Again, SMART says all the drives are fine. I ran a long test on them all.
Is there a way to match that device ID to a drive once FreeNAS is running?
