ZFS on SG-3100 (internal M.2 SSD)
« on: January 14, 2018, 11:15:33 am »

I bought my SG-3100 when Netgate did not offer an SSD option, but I was able to add a M.2 2280 32GB SSD and re-install pfSense 2.4.2_p1 to it.

However, I never got an option to choose the filesystem, like the amd64 installer offers. Once I enter
Code: [Select]
run recovery
the only option I can recall is whether to install to mmcsd0 (the inbuilt eMMC) or the ada0 drive I added.

Is it possible and advisable to install pfSense using ZFS? How do I go about doing it?

Many Thanks!

run recovery is the only supported installation method. ZFS is not currently supported.
