2.4.0 ZFS Install



  • During the installation process of pfSense 2.4.0, does anyone know if you can choose/select the ZFS file system; a checkbox, radio button or something similar?  I thought I would backup my current pfSense instance and create a fresh install of pfSense 2.4.0 with ZFS and then restore my backup.  Any response would be appreciated.  Thank you.



  • Hello,

    yes, u can select ZFS filesystem and restore ur configuration very easily.

    It's what i did with my two pfsenses boxes and all went fine.

    It's also working like a charm with VM even with different MAC ADDRESSES. :)



  • I reinstalled pfSense on my apu2d4 to get ZFS and it went without pretty smooth (me not being seasoned messed about a bit, as expected). When the installer asks about pratitioning, 'Auto (ZFS)' is an option. I found this walk-through's screenshots somewhat useful: https://www.ceos3c.com/2017/09/15/pfsense-2-4-installation-step-step-overview/

    Good luck!
