FreeNAS 8.3 post-installation checklist

So, here’s a short checklist of what to do right after I install FreeNAS 8.3 (not necessarily in order).

  • configure link aggregation (LACP seems to work with 2 switches, failover or other algorithms don’t)
  • change admin and root password
  • enable ssh with root password when LAN is secure
  • configure SMART tests (monthly long test)
  • configure general settings (timezone, syslog, email server)
  • create zpools with lzjb compress, atime off and no deduplication
  • create zfs datasets and volumes and inherit options
  • active directory synchronization
  • iSCSI targets and stuff
  • SMART checks
  • enable SNMP
