Hi All, I appear to have just struck this (or a similar) bug on FreeNAS-8.3.0-BETA3-x64 (r12457)
I am not normally a Beta tester, but had to upgrade due to 8.3 Beta due to a bug in 8.2 final where Freenas would crash when ubuntu clients mounted an NFS export.
Anyway, Yesterday began looking at plugin jail to replace my download server. Here are the approximate steps I have taken:
Created 2 datasets: jail and softwareSo, at this stage have shed a tear or two, and am wondering if it is gone forever... I do have backups of most of it, however they are not totally up to date.
Installed Jail FreeNAS-8.3.0-BETA3-x64.Plugins_Jail.pbi
Having trouble installing plugins "An error Occurred" woudl flash up att he top of the screen
Tried creating a mount point (to see if it helped - unfortunately that mount point source was my entier media dataset... ;(
still unable to install plugins, unable to see anything relavent in logs
deleted the jail, reinstalled. Still no luck
went to put on a tune while I worked through it - voila - no music.... All that was left in the Media share (NFS Export to Mac) was a folder called "plugins"
I would be appreciative of any assistance to recover/restore the data, or at least to help ensure this issue (if a bug) can be resolved.
I have created bug 1825 to track this issue
