My home NAS: HP ProLiant MicroServer

My old NAS system was dying, I need to found a new one…
Here is my new setup:
I've found lot's of advices regarding the setup of the HP MicroServer on TechForum.
Before installing FreeNAS on it, I'm playing with a small FreeBSD 9.0 installation on the USB key.
FreeBSD was installed without any package neither the port-tree: I'm using pkgng with my own package repository (thanks to poudriere).
The only problem that I found, was to correctly disable moused: A simple moused_enable="NO" in the /etc/rc.conf is not enough, I need to add moused_ums0_enable="NO" for disable it.
I've create 2 raid-z pools: A first with the internal hard-drives, a second with the external drives.

Now I've got lot's of disk space for my files:

[root@nas]/#zpool list
estorage  4,53T   912K  4,53T     0%  1.00x  ONLINE  -
storage   9,06T  6,56T  2,50T    72%  1.00x  ONLINE  -
