Enable TRIM without boot in Single Mode / Remote?



  • Hi,

    I install some weeks ago a pfSense box with a SSD inside, unfortunately I forget to enable the TRIM support.
    Since the box is over 150km away I try some tweaks from the forum like "touch /root/TRIM_set", but tunefs -p / show that TRIM is not enable.

    Only way I found on my test setup here is to boot in the Single Mode and enable it with "tunefs -t enable /" which work, but I can't do this on the remote pfsense.

    Is there really no way to enable TRIM support remote?

    Not currently, no. It requires console access.

    I travel the 300 km to enable the TRIM support, sure I don't forget this the next time  8)
