Ok, what I am finding online is that loads of people are having similar 
issues. NFS and FreeBSD and ZFS are not happy all together. Which seems 


Most of the complaints seem to center around ZFS/NFS/Esxi or KVM, but no 
matter the last bit, the first two are the same. And it shouldn't matter 
of its ESX, KVM or just mounting some disks for space, it should work. I 
have not figured out how to change to nfs v4 and turn off async mostly 
because nas4free overwrites things you change in rc.conf when you 
reboot. How nice of it. I suppose thats what I get for installing a 
"take care of everything and give me a pretty gui" software, and then 
expecting it to let me much around in the bowels.  I'll poke around on 
the forums for nas4free tonight, but if I don't find a decent answer, I 
might just blow the thing away and redo it without ZFS and cheating 
'NAS' software distros :-) Or I could always switch to iSCSI since its 
only a single client mounting that data.
