We use the server version as our backup server that sits remotely in a 
This is on FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE and the user data we put on ZFS datasets 
so we can backup that machine with ZFS send to another remote machine. 
When we started using the ahsay server we used windows as the OS but 
with that we had all kind of troubles. Now we use FreeBSD as the server 
OS and we did not have any issue with it till now. (Knock on wood) ....
It has its quirck but when it runs it does the job well. Also the GUI 
does not look nice it looks old and dated.

On the client side we only use the windows version. We have several 
FreeBSD samba servers that we backup using the windows client.
I have no expierience with the client on FreeBSD.

Also nice is that you can run multiple clients on the same account, so 
you do not need extra licenses if you need to backup another server.
