I just downloaded and booted with the LiveCD of FreeNAS v0.686.4.3374 and I'm having a problem.
The machine is an old P3 with 300some Mb of ram, a CDROM drive, and an old 30Gb hard drive. Just for testing purposes.
FreeNAS seems to be having a problem with the network card. When i boot in safe mode everything works just fine, but that's not the case in normal mode. The error message that keeps coming up is:
rl0:watchdog timeout or rl1:watchdog timeout
I used to use this machine for testing ZoneCD
so there are two NICs installed there, and the error occurs on either one of them. And they're not the same model card either.
While in normal mode, it takes forever to even get the login box when trying to access the WebUI, not to mention the rest of the configuration pages.
Later on I'll try using just one card or maybe a totally different brand of NIC altogether.
Thanks for the help.
I tried the "Boot without ACPI" mode, and everything works just fine, so two modes of operation are ok, it's just the Normal mode that still has a problem.
Regardless of this inconvenience, I don't see any of the functions of the server not working... Maybe without the ACPI the hard drive won't go to sleep after 30min or the system won't shut itself down on a schedule, but it's all good for the time being.
