I upgraded my system from 9.10.2-U5 to 9.10.2-U6 and after which all drives in my system were throwing massive and continuous CAM errors stating that "Status not ready" or "Command Failed Retrying".

I Rolled my system back to U5 and issues are now gone but there is some issue with U6 update and my hardware configuration.

System Specs:
System Board: Asus Z9pa-U8
CPU: Intel Xeon 2603 V2
Memory: 96gb
HDD Controller: 2 LSI SAS 9201

I'm sorry, but I can't imagine why that upgrade could cause such results. The mps(4) driver was not mpdified in 9.10.2 and 11.0 branches for more then a year now. It will get some fixes in further 11.1 release, but it should be mostly a fixes, since that hardware is now a legacy. Could you try updating to some recent 11.0 updates instead, since 9.10 line is now discontinued.

I haven't moved my personal system nor any of our customer systems to 11 yet due to all the uncertainty with coral and the 11 branch. Since this is a File Server we don't like taking any risks and tend to stay back a few updates.

Is 11 Now considered fully tested and ready for Deployment? and is it a complete rewrite, uses the same UI as 9 or is a mixture or both? Finally is there a simple and clear roll back from 11 to 9 if we upgrade a server to test with and find it unstable or simply unusable?

Thanks Again!

Robert: 11 is the continuation of the 9 series (from the same development team). It was originally slated to be named 9.10.3 but was renamed to 11 to indicate that it is based on FreeBSD 11 rather than FreeBSD 10. It is quite stable and well QA'd and suited for production as it includes the latest drivers and application updates (eg NFS, SMB, etc.).

FYI, I am running FreeNAS-11.0-U3 on my production server at home. I've had no problems with it, on a FreeNAS MiniXL.
