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:
There isn’t a device ID shown in the error, but try mpsutil show devices.
The error itself is coming from the HBA trying to get an ID from a device and failing.
The command might tell you which device is causing problems by process of elimination.
okay, so i got my omniOS VM going but im not sure how to get networking going:
returns 18.104.22.168 is alive
but pfexec pkg refresh return unable to contact valid package repository encountered the following error(s) unable to contact an configured publishers framework error: code: E_MULTI_UNKNOWN_OPTION Could not resolve host
Honestly, not much. I wanted to install a desktop environment, but failed miserably straight from the start
I don’t remember exactly which commands I used. I tried using history, but I think I had to have had it setup beforehand?
A feature I’m missing is resetting the os to defaults. Like, as they were when the image was installed. I know there are dump and restore commands but they require restore points. What I mean is I wish there was a command that just reset everything back to defaults without me having to do much premeditation
