My FreeBSD knowledge is some what limited. Im looking to have a failover FreeNAS systsem.

Im folllowing this, example here, but is doesnt look like the Carp module is available.

If that is true, anyone know how I can go about adding / enabling carp on FreeNAS.

FreeNAS uses a standard FreeBSD Kernel, so you can simply download the module from the FreeBSD FTP site and it will work. You have to have the right version however. What version of FreeNAS are you running? –  Chris S Jul 23 '12 at 12:50
Thanks for replying. FreeNAS-8.0.4-RELEASE-p3-x64. How do you download and install the kernel module. Do you have a URL for an example. –  Brent Jul 23 '12 at 18:59
So in looking for the if_carp.ko file I've realized that for some reason FreeBSD 8.0 didn't come with it pre-built. I really can't say why, but it's in the 8.2 version. You'd have to build it manually, or upgrade to a newer version. –  Chris S Jul 24 '12 at 1:54
