About the Hardware category

A place for specific hardware questions for use with FreeNAS, including build discussions.

This is the category for hardware-related questions or issues, including discussions of planned FreeNAS system builds. Posting hardware for sale is not permitted here; instead use the community discussion category for such posts. There’s a little bit of overlap between this category and Storage; this is the distinction:

  • Questions dealing with specific storage devices belong here
  • Questions dealing with pool layout, ZFS replication, scrubs, resilvering, and other related subjects belong in Storage.
