Real World Example of How to Resize ZFS in FreeNAS

February 27th, 2009

Harry has written an excellent followup post to his How to Resize ZFS post of last year.

This time Harry is using the real world example where the replacement disk is bigger than the original disk.

His testsystem is a Sempron 2600+ with 1 GB RAM and several SCSI Disks connected via a DAWICONTROL DC-2976 UW controller. He is using FreeNAS 0.7 Sardaukar (revision 4390).

Starting with a testpool of three 2.1 GB SCSI-Disks totaling 5.91 GB he goes on to replace two of the three disks and after exporting and importing the pool the pool grows to 12.0G.

You can read it all at How to resize ZFS – Part 2 (the real world).

    Dear All,
    At first, to be able to post a comment, your forum on Sourceforge asks for login. I am not registered in this moment, but there is no any link to registration. Is forum only for choosen ones?

    At second, it is obvious that something “sucks” about ProFTP, as large number of user cannot login over this protocol. It cannot be that tens of users have made the same mistakein configuration. Can you, please, fix the bug, or give the step-by-step guide how to make ProFTP work?
    Thanks, Pannonius

    Thanks for your comment… In reply I would like to point at the following things:

    1) To post to the forum you need to join SourceForge itself not the specific forum.

    2) If you have issues with ProFTP please raise a bug in the FreeNAS bugtracker or go directly to the ProFTP people and see if this is a known bug.

    Thanks, Gary
