Tech-Tip #81
Mounting a dataset does not automatically mount any child datasets inside it. Each dataset is a separate filesystem, so child datasets must each have separate mount points.

Quote of the Month
“When I had an issue or a question on TrueNAS I was put on the phone with a person very experienced with TrueNAS to answer my oddball and left field questions about highly unlikely use cases. This was before I had actually bought anything from iXsystems and was still shopping around. It’s hard to find that kind of support up front.”
