October 30 Plugins Update

Today’s plugins update addresses several security advisories and updates a few plugins to their latest available versions. The latest plugins versions should appear in Plugins ⇾ Available and existing plugin installations can be updated to the new versions using the instructions below.

Before updating a plugin, review its Release Notes in the table below to determine if the update will impact your configuration. Then, determine the jail_name for the plugin:  go to Plugins ⇾ Installed and note the name of the plugin in the Jails column.

To update the plugin, type this command, replacing jail_name with the actual name shown in Plugins ⇾ Installed:

iocage update jail_name

Note that you will need to restart the plugin once the update is finished.

It is recommended to make a snapshot of your current plugin version before updating. Detailed instructions for creating a plugins snapshot and rolling back to a previous snapshot are available in this post.

    How do i get the “unificontroller”?
    I dont see this in my plugins list.
    Are there steps or a guide of how to get this?

      Installing UniFi Controller on a FreeBSD jail is pretty simple, even if there’s no plugin for it. All you have to do is create a bare jail, access it either through its console or ssh, and install the net-mgmt/unify5 package. You might have to look into enabling the default FreeBSD package repository for that, I don’t recall off the top of my head, but other than that you’re literally just a single ‘pkg install’ command away. I created my UniFi Controller jail like some good months ago and it’s been running like a breeze ever since.

      On the other hand, you might get an outdated unify5 package, for which the only solution I found was to create my own poudriere builder in a Bhyve VM, update the port there and build it, and have the jail fetch the resulting packages from it. I’ve sent my updates to the unify5 port to its maintainer to have my changes trickle into the default FreeBSD pkg repo, but unfortunately he hasn’t responded.

      Yes, Collections is a new feature coming in 11.3:

      Click Browse a Collection to toggle the plugins list between iXsystems plugins, which receive updates every few weeks, and Community plugins.

    I am using FreeNAS-11.2-U4.1 with plexmediaserver plugin in IOCAGE 11.2-RELEASE-p4.
    When updating with
    iocage update plexmediaserver
    I get
    Snapshot: VolZ1/iocage/jails/plexmediaserver@ioc_update_11.2-RELEASE-p4 created.
    Snapshotting plexmediaserver…
    Updating plugin INDEX…

    Host: 11.2-RELEASE is not greater than target: 11.3
    This is unsupported.
    It looks like the new plugin only works with 11.3 but even the Beta is not out yet.
    Or am I getting something wrong?

    • Dru Lavigne

      Hmm, it should be grabbing the 11.2 version of the plugin. If the issue persists after updating the OS to 11.2-U6, create a report at bugs.ixsystems.com.
