Has the uneven recordsize / replication bug been fixed?

Back in 2020, a bug was reported on the forum here regarding the issues that can arise out of replicating a dataset with one recordsize to a remote server where the recordsize for a given dataset was different. Does the Replication task still have to feature a “–large” flag as described here, or is TrueNAS smart enough to know how to send larger datasets with large recordsizes w/o error?

If the –large flag has to be set, how would I go about it since I see no mention in the Replication task GUI pane to do so?

iirc, yes; I would have to dig for something to link you, but I don’t have the energy to do so.

No worries. With these reports on the internet, it’s hard to know what has and has not been resolved, especially if the bug was reported in 2020.

I still don’t see how you can pass flags within the TrueNAS GUI to the replication process though. So since I played around with record sizes on this end I decided to play it safe, nuked the receiving remote from orbit and started the replication from scratch. It’ll take a while but it should also be bugproof since all recordsizes, sVDEV parameters, etc will match.

I hope iXsystems can chime in at some point re: flag use and / or the bug itself, however.

You don’t have this option?



I didn’t see it because I was looking for a spot to put the --large flag in (sort of like the vfs fruit, etc. back in the more complicated days of supporting time machine) but you are right, the GUI has the feature as a one-time use check-box. Luckily mine was already checked!

Thank you for that!
