I decided to pull my dedicated server from “collocation” and rebuild it for home use. I was running VMWare on my NAS (see earlier post) and was about to hit the maximum utilization of the hardware (not just CPU but also networking). My goal was to create a new VMware server for my virtual park
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.
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.
