@fohdeesha I'm going to be honest with you. I've had terrible luck with FreeNAS more times than I can count. It's always been a mix of hardware compatibility issues, appearance of reliability, a not-so-great interface, and a slew of others. I've found unRAID to suffer from similar things. I know a lot of people who use it; and, online, it's obviously widely used by a very large audience - it just doesn't seem to work well for me. I just recently spent at least a couple days trying to use it in front of a fiber-channel array to no avail.
I am about to drain and rebuild an x86-based storage appliance (currently running XPenology) in the next few weeks, so, I may go ahead and try it on this piece of hardware and see where it gets me. I loved OpenFiler back in the day, and, had pretty good luck with Nexenta for a while; but, one is just asking to be compromised using it in 2020, and the other doesn't scale well with modern storage without spending a fortune. XPenology works great, and gets you all the ease of Synology; but, it is very finicky about hardware. I ultimately had to settle with a solution that I really don't like; but, it works for now (Windows Server on vmWare, with the FC array passed through as a RAW disk).
