What’s up people? Long time no see. Yeah I know. Have been running FreeNAS 7 for over a year, everything very stable. Few weeks ago I thought it would be time to finally take the step and upgrade to FreeNAS 8. So I bought the hardware, set everything up and started searching the interwebs on how to get my favorite downloaders working on the new FreeNAS 8. Few weeks later I got (most of it) running.
The bad news: auto startup and shutdown. Can’t seem to get them working. So for now, you have to use a startup script, every time you boot your server.
It’s kinda like tethered booting your jailbroken iPhone 4.
Anyways. If you’re like me and just want to get everything running and don’t reboot your NAS every hour, grab a beer and let’s go!
UPDATE 7 DECEMBER 2011
- Modified startup.sh and shutdown.sh a bit. and made them available for download only. Copy/pasting would truncate the code.

Finally got a way to disable that annoying message when opening files from the internet. Especially when I want to load my NZB’s directly into SAB, this message is pretty annoying. So here the solution.
So at last, after a long time I’ve discovered how to get CouchPotato on the embedded FreeNAS system. A comment I got from Rowan Taubitz gave the breakthrough. Thanks again!
