I put in a bug report on Jira for it on 11.3. It was already set to be implemented into 12. Looks like the commit on github for 11.3 has been approved today.So I found, too.
trussquickly exposed where iocage was waisting so much time on every invocation. Remember: when in doubt, use brute force (Ken Thompson)
I then searched for and found the iocage issues on github. Let's hope that will be fixed in 11.3-U1.
Apart from that: wonderful release! Thanks everyone involved!
It looks like a pretty low priority.In my mind, the smoothest FreeNAS upgrade to date. Well done on the QA side!
The only (very minor) eyebrow raisers so far for me are:
So is there anything from Corral that I still miss? Selfishly, just one. Does anyone, apart from me, miss the calendar? I'd love to see it make a reappearance in a future release of FreeNAS.

Have you tried to restart FreeNAS just in case to see if it's going to pop the latest 11.3 train.My FreeNAS 11.2U7 is saying "No updates available". In the "Train" drop-down menu I have three options:
Do I have to install manual update file, or am I missing something here?
iocage start jailnamefrom the CLI. The few that didn't, I was able to correct using
iocage fstab -e jailname. I also needed to reconfigure the UPS settings, but once I did it stopped throwing errors.
I needed to change the driver. Under 11.2, one of the entries specifically mentioned the APC 9630 network card, and it worked perfectly. Under 11.3, I'm not sure if the driver name changed, but the description did, and it wasn't making connections. I changed the driver to one mentioning the AP9618 SNMP monitoring card, and that one works just fine.What settings did you change on the UPS?
OMG!!!! Yes! Yes! Yes! Everyone vote please!Corral was before my time at iX so I don't have first hand experience with this. With that said, this looks very interesting so I've created a ticket to gauge user interest. If any users are interested in this making a comeback in a future release, please vote on the Jira ticket linked below.
I ended up getting it to work. Under System -> Boot. I was on 11.2-U7-1. I had an issue with when U7 first came out so I rolled back to U6 and stayed there. Once I wanted to move to 11.3 it created a new environment for me. So I changed my active environment to 11.2-U7 and once I booted that environment I was able to see the new 11.3 update.No more ideas other than make a config backup and create a new FreeNAS 11.3 USB bootable disk then restore or upload from the config backup and never destroy your old FreeNAS 11.2. U7 USB disk.

That and more. It serves a number of useful functions. Some that spring to mind include:What does it do? It's a centralized way to visually schedule system tasks?
I wonder if the videos from Jordan Hubbard explaining the features of the OS are still out there?That and more. It serves a number of useful functions. Some that spring to mind include:
- A drag and drop approach to scheduling one-off and periodic tasks such as scrubs, replication, snapshots short and long SMART tests, cron jobs, commands, rsync tasks and updates, reporting, etc.
- A consolidated approach to task management. Atm, you have to dive in and out of different menus to create and schedule specific tasks.
- The visual approach helps you avoid scheduling resource-intensive tasks in the same block of time eg scrubs and long smart tests together.
- Day, week and month views help you choose the best days and times to schedule jobs.
The only one I could find on YouTube is from an end user.I wonder if the videos from Jordan Hubbard explaining the features of the OS are still out there?
I had a quick look and could no longer locate his presentation on Corral. However, there's about a minute's worth of video on the Corral calendar starting at around 17:58 on this YouTube video.I wonder if the videos from Jordan Hubbard explaining the features of the OS are still out there?
