Re: Running Adguard on RB4011 / disk wear

the adguard container is fairly small. and IF Mikrotik is using some kind of wear leveling on their internal nand then its probably good for a really long time.... to be completely sure you may wish for something with an external storage option such as RB5009, RB3011, hAP ac3, or RB450GX4 that way w...

I would like it if containers didn't have to be placed behind NAT....

This is different, it worked for netinstall, but continued to only boot to ethernet after netinstalling with no fallback to nand. This is also present in ROS 6.47.10 as well as being available in the current v7.1RC4 release. I don't think this option is related to https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopi...

+1 for making a quickset policy. It seems increasingly unlikely we will get separate packages (why that is boggles my mind…) but then we can at least disable it for certain users as mentioned above. And it can be in the full group by default so home users have it by default as normis stated.

Re: 7.1RC2 expired password can be ignored

Passwords do not matter to netinstall. It will format any device and reinstall ROS.

What they mean is that the only way to recover from forgetting your password is to netinstall. If you don’t know the correct password then you must netinstall to regain access to the device.
