Welcome to the FreeNAS® Documentation Project!
Are you using FreeNAS 0.7? The 0.7 branch was EOL'd in late 2011 and is no longer available for download due to unpatched security vulnerabilities. New 0.7 development has been rebranded as NAS4Free. All 0.7 users are strongly encouraged to move to either NAS4Free or to upgrade to the latest version of FreeNAS®
This is the wiki area for the collaborative creation of documentation for the next release of FreeNAS®. Unless you are beta testing the upcoming version, you should NOT be reading the wiki version of the documentation.
The current release of FreeNAS® is FreeNAS® 9.1.1-RELEASE. Users running previous versions are encouraged to upgrade to or install the current release and to refer to the 9.1.1 Users Guide. A PDF of the Users Guide is available at the FreeNAS® download page.
Since the Users Guide is specific to a released version, always use the version of the Guide that matches your software version. If you are running an older version of FreeNAS®, you will find archived versions of the Guide at Past Releases.
If you are interested in translating the most recent released version of the documentation, send an email to the freenas-translations mailing list.
Work in Progress: 9.2.0 User Guide
The rest of this wiki is the editing area for the upcoming 9.2.0 Users Guide. The 9.2.0 User Guide is considered to be a work in progress, meaning that it changes on a daily basis as new features are added to 9.2.0. Unless you are beta testing 9.2.0, you should not be referring to the wiki documentation as what you read will most likely not match what you are seeing on your FreeNAS® system. Refer to the published User Guide that matches your RELEASE version of FreeNAS® instead.
We need your help to fill in the documentation gaps and to provide real-world usage examples to make sure that the 9.2.0 FreeNAS® Users Guide is as useful as possible when it is published. This Guide grows into a useful resource when users (meaning you!) contribute to it. You don't have to write large sections in order to be a contributor. You also don't need to have a lot of time on your hands. You simply have to create a login account in order to assist with any of the following tasks:
- proofread existing pages and fix any typos, incorrect grammar, or unclearly worded sections.
- add to sections containing missing, outdated, or incomplete content.
- update any screenshots that are out of date.
- every page has a Discussion tab. You can use this if you would like to suggest further information that should appear in that section of the Handbook.
We are emailed whenever edits are made and will contact you for clarification if an edit is unclear. You can also be notified when specified pages are edited--simply click the "my preferences" or "my watchlist" links whenever you are logged into the wiki.
