HPE Proliant ML30 Gen9 and freeNAS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I got the system running but had some issues.

Main problem was that I thought that install hangs after creating partitions to usb disk. But it didn't hang, it wad just painfully slow. Installation took over an hour to complete.

So has anybody else had similar problems with proliant servers or other systems?


Another question I have is constant small data writes to the pool. I know that those are part of freenas operation, but is it possible to change them different drive like an SSD. So would a ZIL drive or some setting changes reduce the amount of writes?

So it looks like the installation problem was the USB drive I used for freenas boot drive. It is brand new Kingston USB3 drive but looks like its broken. Just installed to another USB drive and it took only minutes.


And the constant small data writes to the pool were solved by moving system dataset from the main pool to boot drive.
