    Help with ZFS datasets for NFS

    If I understand datasets, each one acts like its own filesystem. In my usual workflow, large files will be pulled down into an NFS share, and when complete, moved to another folder. I imagine this is pretty common. I think this means that putting my download folder and final location folder in...

    Pool datasets missing from mountpoint

    After a reboot earlier today the pool and all the datasets are missing from the mountpoint (/mnt). The ZPOOL and ZFS listings (as well as the 11.2 GUI storage display show them to be fine. I have tried various things such as export/import the pool to no avail. I am able to create a new...

From a shell, I see the pool is mounted as /mnt/my-pool, and the datasets are /mnt/my-pool/ds-1, /mnt/my-pool/ds-2, etc. (not...

    Difference in the quotas

    Freenas 9.10-U6. In the advanced dataset options are two fields - "Quota for this dataset and all children" and "Quota for this dataset"? What's the difference? If you quota a dataset (call it Junk, with a quota 500GiB) and then create a dataset under it (lets call that Trash), wouldn't the max...

    Detect dataset permission type (UNIX/ACL) from terminal

    Hi, I have two scripts that rsync'es multiple datasets to remote. One for UNIX one for ACL datasets, as rsync flags should differ. I could create more general approach using just one script by changing each "associative array" member, it's the way i have set it up (local path and remote path)...
