On-Demand FreeNAS Training

Sometimes network users do not appear in the drop-down menu of a Permissions screen but the wbinfo commands display these users. This is typically due to the FreeNAS system taking longer than the default ten seconds to join Active Directory. Increase the value of AD timeout to 60 seconds to make sure all users are visible in FreeNAS.

Quote of the Month
“We have worked with iXsystems over the years both for our internal systems as well as a supplier of custom-specified hardware for our on-prem SaaS deployments to our customer sites. This has made for an interesting sales channel, but something iXsystems has truly made easier. Working together, we have been able to ensure the right hardware and preloaded and tested software is delivered. iXsystems has even gone so far as working with us to deliver install guides with serial numbers and pictures of the actual hardware being shipped out. We default to iX not only due to cost but also TCO. All of our internal and on-prem deployments continue to run with little operational issues, outliving our planned failure rate. I attribute this to iX’s quality control and focus on long term part compatibility more than anything else. With remote deployments globally, this is a big benefit to us.”
