Before you can successfully check for updates to FreeNAS you need nameservers correctly configured, which they aren't if you use a static IP address. This article describes setting up DNS and then checking for updates.
Start by logging on to FreeNAS.
- Go to Network > Global configuration.
- Enter IPv4 Default Gateway.
- Enter Nameservers 1, 2 and 3 as required. (e.g. you might include the Google nameserver 184.108.40.206).
- Click Save.
Now you are ready to check and install any updates.
- Go to System > Update.
- Click Check Now.
