SABnzbd on FreeNAS 11.2

I did a blog in the past on installing SABnzbd on FreeNAS though with code release 11.2 this changed and the plugin is not listed by default anymore. There are a few guides out there and I decided to list my steps and grab the best of all guides. Setting up the User In the

Migrate Domoticz to new RasPi

I have been running Domoticz for quite some time now and it has become the central point of our home. We don’t use it just for the lights but also camera’s, temperature, sunscreens, scenes etc. Though the recent version (4.10717) caused an error after updating on my old Pi generation 1 (GLIBC_2.17 missing) so it

Deploy IBM Cloud Private

From my current System job at IBM, we talk a lot of “IBM Cloud Private” where you can build your own Cloud using, at its core, Kubernetes, Docker and Helm. I decided to look into this by deploying it on my local VMware system on two Ubuntu vm’s and play around with it.

Python & Jupyter on Ubuntu

Recently I started an online course to learn Python to understand the global concepts of Machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Robotics which all rely heavily on Python. Even Cyber security is driven by Python. While Java is still the number one requested development language, Python is already in the top 5 overall (source; https://stackify.com).

Sickbeard & SABnzbd on VM

Now that I have virtualized my FreeNAS installation I no longer need to run “Jails” on FreeNAS and can use a normal Ubuntu installation to run my downloading services like Sickbeard and SABnzbd. In this blog I explain the basic installation running the two services on the same virtual machine running Ubuntu.

Migrate FreeNAS to VMware

I was running my FreeNAS installation dedicated on my NAS Build I did last year. Though I wanted more freedom thus installing a hyper-visor (VMware) to run multiple virtual operating systems so I can fully utilize my resources in this build. In this blog I describe how I migrated the FreeNAS installation to a virtual machine.

Building my new PC

Here is a short build blog for my 5th PC. My old one was almost 6 years old and after the memory and GPU upgrade during 2016 I was unable to scale more and games where dropping huge FPS. Thus, time for a new one! –> This is still a work in progress but here

SABnzbd & Sickbeard on FreeNAS 9

One of the things my NAS at home does is Downloading! I am using SABnzbd as a the download engine. This tool connects to the usenet provider and can download and unpack files even with the use of PAR files (parity recovery files to repair broken blocks in the packed files). We only need to

Installing FreeNAS – MIGRATE!

After my hardware build I looked into what operating system my NAS should be running. Because I have 4 drives it should be capable of doing a type of RAID, accessible by my Windows computers (CIFS) and media centers running XMBC (NFS) and be able to download automatically using Sickbeard and SABnzbd.
