Limiting UFS File system creation choice

Written by admin on .

My 4 hours of train today, permit me to work on FreeNAS:

  • Replaced the 4 UFS choices for formatting an hard drive, by only one (EFI GPT with soft updates) and add the possibility to choose the minimum free space reserved (between 8% and 1%).
  • Rename the Software RAID name on the WebGUI by replace “geom. Mirror” by “RAID 1”, “geom. Concat” by “JBOD”, etc…
  • Continued to work on the FreeNAS presentation for the BSDCan2007

I’ve received a new language file: Russian, and a patch that permit to mount an ISO file directly from FreeNAS (But I think that I will add this feature after the 0.684b).

Next feature that I will works on:
Prevent the user to format an hard drive that is using in a software RAID volume.

And good news for blog reader…. As soon as the openssh-portable port will be fixed, I will release the 0.684b :-)

I will try to prepare and AMD64 release too (but using QEMU64 under a 32bit PC is very slow).
