I’ve documented the installation of Urbackup on FreeNAS with ZFS in a Jail.
It’s a very efficient to run Urbackup on FreeNAS!

Here is the Link:

If anyone has further suggestions let me know!


Hello matthias,
I think it is very usefull to mention the init script for starting and stopping
the urbackupsrv service as well.


Just came across your post and it gives me hope in getting UrBackup to work in Freenas 11.3 however, with the UI changes and I think the jail system I am unable to piece this altogether. Are you able to update your github manual for 11.3? This seems very helpful and im new to the setup.
An updated manual would be much Appreciated!
