If I try to edit or add rsync tasks or edit permissions of a dataset I get his error message:

Exception Value:
'NoneType' object has no attribute 'encode'
Exception Location: /usr/local/www/freenasUI/../freenasUI/common/ in get_netbios_name, line 1031

I have upgraded to and the same error happens.

Fixed in 2c878300d7c1c9ac2ba4085f034b271e50707ea8. Please open your AD configuration and save it again (when you update to 9.2.18.. when it comes out, or if you apply this manually).

When I try to save AD contiguration after updating to 9.2.18 I get the same error so I can´t save my configuration and solve the problem :-(

Any idea?

#5 Updated by Rafa Corrales almost 7 years ago

Just one note:

It´s mandatory to disable Directory Services before saving AD configuration, then it works!!

#6 Updated by Rafa Corrales almost 7 years ago

It´s curious, If I turn on Directory Services the bug appears with its evil :-(
So I have to stop directory services if I want to edit anything where the server NETBIOS name is involved, this is annoying in a production server. I am going to install FREENAS in a test server just to check this issue and getting more information for you.

Thanks for your effort.
