    Hi all,

    Recently set myself up an HP Microserver and spent hours agonising over getting freenas 9 running with jails/plugins.

    Now I've upgraded the system to freenas corral which does away with the jails and plugins and moves over to the docker platform

    I have it mostly working again, plex runs fine, sickrage/sickbeard runs fine and deluge runs fine, but the docker applications write their own permissions to newly created files in the filestore.

    I.e. sickrage finds new content, pushes it to deluge which downloads the content, then deluge is unable to move the incomplete file to the completed directory for processing.

    The 'workaround' is to re apply permissions to the whole filestore but obviously this is not a workable solution, has anyone got a good holding on how to apply permissions correctly for docker?

    If i can't get it working i'm thinking of just ditching it for a linux distro and doing it all in gui


    edit: I'm thinking maybe the docker host auto sets up a permission set and I confused myself by giving the docker host a dumb name... TBD

    Well, I gave up and re did it inside Ubuntu... now working properly again.


    Cheers

    I am about to have this problem as I upgrade from a N40L microserver to a new Xeon-based box. I'll be going from 9.10 to Corral and switching over pretty much the same plugins.

    With the benefit of hindsight, do you think it would have been viable to run Ubuntu as a VM inside FreeNAS?

    Pointless extra overhead on an already fairly week CPU. Life after switching to Ubuntu has been a dream. So much easier to configure this torrent box setup.

    Yep heard the same this morning. Lead dev of corral apparently left and the rest of the team can't support it. It will keep going but as a "preview" build rather than a stable build... such a shame after the big song and dance they did after releasing it.

    Per the communication from iX Systems so far, there were a number of underlying issues in Corral that triggered the decision to revert to the more stable 9.10 base. It's been said that Docker will be re-integrated into 9.10 in update 9.10.4, however this will follow 9.10.3 to be released in May. Who knows how long it will actually take?

    Unfortunate for users who upgraded mostly due to the ease of the Docker ecosystem (such as myself), but not catastrophic. It's just a trigger to re-investigate using a manually-implemented VM in FreeNAS 9.10 for the media stuff, whether it be Ubuntu like or a more Docker-friendly Linux VM. Good opportunity to learn something new.

    I've now migrated to a Xeon 1230v5 / Supermicro X11-based build, so I have plenty of headroom for experimentation on how best to achieve this. I'll keep the thread updated if there's any ongoing interest.

    Lols!

    Look, I admit I do not really like the free nas crew and their arrogance and this made me happy :)

    sorry to be petty and base, but I love a train wreck as much as the next guy. Eat som humble pie freenas f*ckers!

    To be fair, this has been a lot better lately. A couple of former moderators seem to have been asked to settle down / stop posting, so there's less inclination to tear a newbie a new asshole over things such as not using ECC memory - although it will be noted, because the recommended hardware calls for it. Getting rid of the more aggressive posters has made it more constructive - which in turn, seems to have lead to more guides being created both on the forums and on YouTube.

    Fairly massive clanger with Corral though. As someone who got burned, I'm trying to think about it positively - wasting 40-50hrs of my life is a good lesson not to rely on x.0 software. Lot of people bleating about how inconvenient it is, they could do well to take it as a lesson too.
