I am running a FreeNAS (FreeBSD version) on a DELL R310, but when I connect a USB stick it does not automatically get mounted. The same stick does get automatically mounted in CentOS/Fedora.

How do I troubleshoot this and make it work?

Make sure you have a USB kernel module loaded using kldload or compile the module into the kernel using the kernel config script in /usr/src/sys/<type>/conf. I'm not sure if FreeNAS can be compiled with a USB module, but I'd assume so.

then do mount -t <filesystem_type> /dev/usb /<some_dir>
