FreeNAS: How to Deploy a Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate in FreeNAS 11.x and HTTPS Configuration

Greetings friends, the other day I showed you how to deploy FreeNAS 11.x on a vSphere environment, which can be perfectly reproduced in Hyper-V, or in any other Hypervisor or physical, or in Cloud.One of the most important things in this type of cases, is to have security when we activate space sharing services, whether FTP, Object Storage, etc.. That's why today, we're going to see how to deploy a Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate over FreeNAS 11.x.

SSH connection to our FreeNAS 11.x

The first step will be to be able to access our FreeNAS via SSH, for this we will go to the services part, and in SSH, we will click on Actions to edit the options:

FreeNAS: Initial installation and configuration of FreeNAS 11.x as VM within vSphere

Greetings friends, today I come to tell you how to deploy and configure one of the best open source projects that I have been following for about 12 years. This is FreeNAS, a software that turns any computer, or VM, into a powerful NAS system with support for SMB, CIFS, NFS, SSH, iSCSI and much more.This project was also based on my beloved m0n0wall, which I told you about five years ago how to install it too and so on, so knowing that FreeNAS was based, or inspired by m0n0wall touches a certain sensitivity of mine without a doubt.In addition and to finish off that I can say that FreeNAS is the best friend for Homelabs and SMEs, since the last version includes a new interface based on Angular, in addition to having updated OpenZFS to the latest version to make storage the most solid part of the solution.More good news, this is a series of blogs about the possibilities of FreeNAS, so buckle up, recline the office chair and enjoy.

Looking for the Perfect Dashboard: InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana – Part XVII – Showing Dashboards on Two Monitors Using Raspberry Pi 4

Greetings friends, I have been telling you throughout the series on Grafana many things, from how to monitor Linux, Windows, Veeam, VMware, and also the Server temperature using IPMI.Today I thought it convenient to show you the step by step to be able to visualize our Dashboards, if we have followed all the series will be already about 16 Dashboards, in a dynamic way and in two monitors using a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B.Once you have finished the tutorial step by step, you will be able to have something similar to this in your Homelabs, offices:

Looking for Perfect Dashboard: InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana – Part XVI – Performance and Advanced Security of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

Greetings friends, I come to the sixteenth post on InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana, you can find all the posts on InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana here. Today I bring you a new entry, in this case it is a Dashboard focused on advanced security when we use Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is in charge of protecting our elements in Office 365, be it all the mailboxes we have in Exchange Online, or SharePoint Online and even OneDrive for Business, I also leave you the entire category on this product (remember that there is a Community Edition with up to 10 free users, without paying anything).

At the end of the entry you will have something similar to that Dashboard that will allow you to visualize:

Looking for the Perfect Dashboard: InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana – Part XV – IPMI Monitoring of our ESXi Hosts

Greetings friends, we have spoken on numerous occasions about the power of InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana, if you remember not long ago I left you this fantastic post on how to monitor your vSphere for free and in less than 5 minutes: The post, and the Dashboards ready to consume, which have several thousand downloads, are very complete, but if it is true that many of you have asked me if we could go a step further and also monitor the physical part of the ESXi Hosts, using the IPMI.At the end of the blog posts you can have an interesting Dashboard as simple and useful as this one, where we can see the temperatures of the different components (it's different for each manufacturer, I'll leave you ready HPE and Supermicro):You can see it live without installing anything here:
