Description

I'm testing the new UI with my FreeNAS box updated with the latest FreeNAS-11-Nightly version.

In the old UI Network/Interfaces section, there are warnings (with the entire screen going red) when a change requires a network restart. The New UI has a confirmation popup window, but enhancing the warning to include network restarts will be appreciated.

Do you by chance remember which changes caused this to pop up?

The Guide mentions warnings that appear when networking has to be restarted when adding/making changes in Network/Interfaces (http://doc.freenas.org/11/network.html#interfaces). I can make the warning appear in the old UI by clicking "Delete" for an existing Interface. Added a screenshot example of the popup/screen change. Given the unspecific nature of the wording in the docs, I would expect there to be other operations (in Network/Interfaces at least) that will display the same warning.

This may be a separate thing/feature request, but lagg creation could benefit from popups/warnings like this. During lagg testing, I often lost access to the web ui and would have to manually restart networking directly from my testing system. I could see that as a point of frustration for users that could be smoothed over with warning popups or something similar.
