This thread viewtopic.php?p=2837#p2837 says Unimus 2.0.7 supports FreeNAS/TrueNAS.

What does that mean?
Unimus can get the cofing file from FreeNAS/TrueNAS (core, enterprise)? With all passwords? On regular basis?
Do I understand correctly?

Or can Unimus do more stuff regarding FreeNAS/TrueNAS?

Thanks for reply.

Yes, Unimus can backup config of FreeNAS / TrueNAS - any edition will work.

For backup, the configuration database is backed up periodically. This is the same DB file you would get from the web UI when you do a backup. Unimus properly reads it as text (since it is just a SQLite database), so even Config Change notifications and change diffs will work properly.

All features of Unimus will work with FreeNAS / TrueNAS. Config Change Notifications, Config Search as well as Mass Config Push will also work properly.

For Mass Config Push / Automation, Unimus can change any of the usual BSD settings, or you can inject stuff to the configuration DB. Just check "Require enable mode" in Config Push, this will switch you to root, and then you can use "sqlite3 /data/freenas-v1.db -cmd xxxx".
