We have a TrueNAS (commercial version of FreeNAS) at work, and it looks
like there's really no actual CLI.  We had significant problems with NFS
(used it for storing email in Maildir format), and we worked with the
developers on tracking it down.  Watching them work, they did stuff by
hand and/or went into Python (or even SQLite directly) to make changes.
There did not appear to be any CLI-type tools to manage it.
