Hi,

i want to ask you if there is an experience of a setup with FreeNAS/ZFS
storage and OpenAFS. Do  i need two server boxes. One FreeNAS storage
box and one for the OpenAFS daemons and connect them with iscsi ?

Is it possible to run the OpenAFS server services in FreeNAS ? (maybe
this could be a question for the FreeNAS guys)

Does it make sense / is it a good idea to combine ZFS and OpenAFS ?

We use this setup and we are happy!

FreeNAS is FreeBSD, but it has a very reduces set of packages.. Try
asking FreeNAS guys!

We use ZFS volumes as block devices for iSCSI LUNs and it works very well.

We do the same - have done so for nigh on 4 years now

Had power outages and nas hardware lockup’s but no loss of integrity over such events.

In process of buying h/w to expand and migrate old data

Hi Andreas,

We have had our AFS servers running on ZFS on Solaris, OpenIndiana, and FreeBSD for a few years.

This slide deck has a good presentation on what to do:

Cheers,
