FreeNAS 8.0.1-BETA2

Hot on the tail of the first BETA I am proud to announce 8.0.1-BETA2

Release Notes for FreeNAS 8.0.1-BETA2

This is the second of three planned betas in the 8.0.1 release cycle.

Most of the changes from BETA1 are bug fixes. In particular several
bugs have been fixed in the migrations from 8.0-RELEASE. The system
was not relabeling ZFS volumes to use the new devicename-independent
naming scheme correctly in BETA1. Also the database migration
scrips in BETA1 do not migrate NFS shares properly.

Changes since 8.0.1-BETA1:

The upgrade/migration scripts have been improved. In previous versions
failure of the database upgrade was easy to miss, and it could leave the
system booting to single user mode with error messages that had nothing
to do with the root issue. This has been rectified. If a database
migration does fail, the error message will be clear as to what
happened, also the system will save diagnostic information that can be
used by the developers to recover from the failed migration as well as
make changes to prevent the issue from affecting users in the future.

iSCSI has been improved. The SCSI serial number can be set on a per
target basis. This fixes an issue where MMIO was seeing different
FreeNAS server as the same device. Multiple IPs can also be specified
per portal.

The ssh daemon now logs to /var/log/auth.log

Several fixes have been incorporated into the volume import procedure.

Several fixes and improvements have been made to the remote replication
process.

The system handles the timezone setting better.

CIFS now defaults to AIO enabled.
