I've created a GitHub repository containing the scripts I've written for use with my FreeNAS-on-ESXi All-In-One systems:

https://github.com/Spearfoot/utility-scripts-for-freenas-and-vmware-esxi

These might be handy for folks who haven't already cooked up their own solutions to the standard issues:
  • Forcing ESXi to rescan datastores so it will see the ones provided by FreeNAS
  • Starting up selected VMs when FreeNAS boots
  • Shutting down VMs gracefully when FreeNAS is shut down
  • Configuring FreeNAS to poll a UPS and shut down the ESXi host when needed

What? Are you quite sure? Everyone else seems to have no trouble posting a resource:
