The FreeNAS team is proud to announce FreeNAS 8.0.2, a followup
release to 8.0.1
Release Notes for FreeNAS 8.0.2-RELEASE
*** IMPORTANT ***
The image size increased in 8.0.1-BETA3. The new size requires a 2 GB
storage device. The GUI upgrade can be used to upgrade a system from
BETA3, BETA4, or RC1 but upgrades from earlier releases can only be
done from the CD. The other option is to save the config, reinstall
the new version, then restore the config.
Major changes since 8.0.1-RELEASE:
- – The email subsystem was not working correctly in 8.0.1-RELEASE, which
resulted in the system not being able to send mail, as well as
disfunction of the alerting system in the GUI.
Changes since 8.0.1-RELEASE:
- – Allow decimal numbers for a dataset quota. (r8728)
- – Fix setting recursive ACLs. (r8270)
- – Start proftpd after ix-ssl to use the correct SSL cert. (r8246)
- – Use wildcards in cron and rsync jobs instead of listing all values.
- – Fix case in iSCSI targets to match the behavior specified by RFC
Changes since 8.0-RELEASE
There’s too much to list here, but the high points are:
- – Divorced the volume members in the database from the FreeBSD devices.
This resolves an issue where FreeBSD can change devices names and the
GUI doesn’t pick up the updates due to the devices names being
hard-wired in the database.
- – Support exporting ZFS zvols (virtual devices) as device extents via
8.0 was only able to export physical device nodes or file based extents.
- – The GUI now has an event notification system.
- – The email backend has been refactored.
- – Many many changes in the GUI to help it validate and sanitize inputs
that are passed to the backend daemons.
- – Added UPS functionality.
- – Added rsync client and server functionality.
- – Added the ability to schedule cron jobs in the GUI.
- – Vastly improved and reworked snapshot replication.
CHAP doesn’t work with GlobalSAN initiators on OS X.
Upgrades from FreeNAS 0.7 aren’t supported.
The installer doesn’t check the size of the install media before
attempting an install. A 2 GB device is required, but the install
will appear to complete successfully on smaller devices, only to fail
The installer will let you switch from i386 to amd64 architecture and
vice-versa, but some files, such as the rrd files used by the statistics
graphing package are architecture dependent.
