I am working on a Headless install of TrueNAS on a WD Sentinal DX4000.
The systems does not have VGA output so i am using the Serial Console install option.
I have manged to connect to the device over a serial console and have managed to change the BIOS boot setting to boot from the USB.
I get to the point where the TrueNAS Installer screen shows up with the multiple options to install TrueNAS.
I select 2 as the option to install over Serial, since the device does not have any VGA output. But i get the below errors and the console gets stuck there.
can't find 'openzfs'
can't find '/boot/entropy'
can't find '/etc/hostid'
Start @ 0xffffffff80377000 ...
I did manage to run TrueNAS on this device some time back and it was running fine for several months before i decided to do an update. I was running FreeNAS on the same device as well in the past and i actually upgraded from FreeNAS to TrueNAS. I never did a fresh install of TrueNAS on the device before.
Last time that i installed FreeNAS it was a hit and trial as i installed FreeNAS on another system and then just put the USB on this device and it worked and got an IP from DHCP and the rest of the config i did from the web browser.
This time around i wanted to do it the right way so configured serial console and have things working except the install keeps failing.
I have already tried creating the USB setup multiple time on multiple USBs using multiple creation software like Win32 Disk Imager & Rufus etc.
Any suggestion are most welcome.
