Section 2: Using the Graphical Interface
This section of the Guide describes all of the configuration screens available within the FreeNAS® graphical administrative interface. It begins with a Quick Start Guide that provides an overview of the FreeNAS® configuration workflow.
The configuration screens are listed in the order that they appear within the FreeNAS® configuration tree found in the left frame of the graphical administrative interface.
NOTE: It is important to use the GUI (or the console) for all configuration changes. FreeNAS® uses a configuration database to store its settings. While you can use the command line to modify your configuration, changes made at the command line are not written to the configuration database. This means that any changes made at the command line will not persist after a reboot and will be overwritten by the values in the configuration database during an upgrade.
