On-Demand FreeNAS Training

It is important to use the web interface or the Console Setup menu for all configuration changes. FreeNAS uses a configuration database to store its settings. While it is possible to use the command line to modify the configuration, changes made at the command line are not written to the configuration database. This means that any changes made at the command line will not persist after a reboot and will be overwritten by the values in the configuration database during an upgrade
