Three Options to Setup a napp-it ZFS Storage Server

Option 1: napp-it barebone setup

Install your OS and napp-it manually

read napp-it.pdf

Option 2: napp-it ToGo VM (All-in-One, virtualised setup)

Preconfigured image as an ESXi template, virtualized NAS/SAN

Option 3:  napp-it ToGo Sata (disk cloning)

Preconfigured images for Sata SSDs or Sata DOM, barebone setup

read napp-it.pdf

This means disk cloning and requires the identical disks. This is an option for distribution.

Use this method if you like your own setup, if you only need simple NAS/SAN config without advanced support for other operating systems or  if you need a dedicated highspeed NAS or SAN.

Download a bootup ISO of newest OmniOS, OpenIndiana or Solaris 11, burn it and install to a local Sata disk or fast USB stick (min  30 GB, best are SSDs).  You can also use one or two Sata DOMs for a boot mirror, see
 but I would prefer Enterprise boot SSDs  like a 80/120GB  Intel DC 35xx SSD with brackets ex

Configure your network and install napp-it via online command

Step1: Setup your OS ex

Step 2: configure you network
enable DHCP or set a fixed ip

Step 3: setup the appliance
run the online installer

wget -O - | perl

Please set a password for root and napp-it now (only on permission error messages in 151028)!
passwd root and optionally passwd napp-it

You can now manage the storage server via: http://ip_of_your_server:81

fter setup I suggest to clone the bootdisk to an external disk or an SMB/NFS share (can be your desktop) with clonezilla (from USB stick) or with the help of an 3,5" hardware Sata raid 1 enclosure.  If you care about uptime, do a ZFS boot mirror on two disks.  If you use a hardware raid-1 enclosure, I would use it with its hotplug capability to clone the bootdisk - not for regular raid-use as they are not as good as ZFS mirrors.

In case of problems, try a former BE, use the bootable backup disk or restore from image with clonezilla.
