I have a few FreeNAS systems, two of them are running 11.3-RC1 and one of the exported configs does not restore when "upload config" from System -> General is initiated. I've tested the exported config on a fresh install from bare metal and a VM. Once the config is uploaded, the system reboots and doesn't kick off the migrating bits and is in the system is still in the previous state.
This seems to be specific to a particular configuration, my other FreeNAS system, I can export the config from the other 11.3-RC1 system and it restores correctly.
Lastly, I tried to restore the "bad" 11.3-RC config on a 11.2 install, it seems to work a bit better, but during the reboot after the migration, it gets stuck on middlewared: setting up plugins (alert) [10/17]
Things I've tried:
- Poked through the config in sqlbrowser and don't see anything incorrect.
- Tried an older 11.3-RC1 backup [does not work]
- Tried to restore the 11.3-RC1 config on a fresh 11.2 install [seems to kind of work]
- Tried to restore the 11.3-RC1 config on a fresh 11.3-RC1 install [does not work]
