From: zfs-discuss-boun...@opensolaris.org [mailto:zfs-discuss-boun...@opensolaris.org] On Behalf Of Tiernan OToole Sent: 25 February 2013 14:58 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [zfs-discuss] ZFS Distro Advice Good morning all. My home NAS died over the weekend, and it leaves me with a lot of spare drives (5 2Tb and 3 1Tb disks). I have a Dell Poweredge 2900 Server sitting in the house, which has not been doing much over the last while (bought it a few years back with the intent of using it as a storage box, since it has 8 Hot Swap drive bays) and i am now looking at building the NAS using ZFS... But, now i am confused as to what OS to use... OpenIndiana? Nexenta? FreeNAS/FreeBSD? I need something that will allow me to share files over SMB (3 if possible), NFS, AFP (for Time Machine) and iSCSI. Ideally, i would like something i can manage "easily" and something that works with the Dell... Any recommendations? Any comparisons to each? Thanks. -- Tiernan O'Toole blog.lotas-smartman.net www.geekphotographer.com www.tiernanotoole.ie
