Since FreeNAS 8 binaries snapshots are available, here is a little HOW-TO with one disk shared by CIFS.
- log on the webgui with login “admin” and password “freenas”
- Declare the disk
- Create a “group” (single) using previously declared disk
- Create a volume (mount point) using previously created group
- Enable a share service
- Add a share corresponding to the service previously enabled
Detailed steps with screen-shots:
