FreeNAS 11.2-U2

The FreeNAS development team is pleased to announce the availability of the second update to FreeNAS 11.2. This bug fix release addresses the following security vulnerabilities:

Samba has been updated to 4.9.4 which is the current stable release receiving new features. This version bump provides significant performance improvements as well as improved Time Machine over SMB support.

The Enable SMB1 support checkbox has been added to Services ‣ SMB. However, users are cautioned to not use SMB1.

The new web UI has received many bug fixes.

Due to the many security fixes and UI improvements, users of 11.2 systems are encouraged to update to 11.2-U2 using the instructions in the Guide.

Known Impacts

If you receive a “UnboundLocalError: local variable ‘bridge_cmd’ referenced before assignment” error when installing a plugin, click ADVANCED PLUGIN INSTALLATION in the installation screen and select “auto” for the VNET option. To resolve this error when starting a plugin or jail or when installing a jail, click the 3 button menu for that jail, click Edit, click Network Properties, and change the vnet_default_interface property to “auto”. If that does not resolve the issue, try checking and unchecking the DHCP box.

Known Issues

Some users are not able to create iSCSI device extents in the new UI. As a workaround, use the legacy UI to create device extents until the cause is diagnosed and the issue is resolved.

Some SMB sharing edge cases, particularly those using Unix permissions, may become inaccessible with this update. If your SMB share works in RELEASE-U1 but not in U2, enable the ixnas VFS Object for that share in Sharing ‣ Windows (SMB) Shares.
