Hi all,
I'm using freenas 8.0 to export some zfs dataset via iscsi to an esxi server.
Now i would like to schedule a periodic snapshot of those dataset but i have some question.
1-Where the snapshots will be located? if it will be located on the same dataset I'm "snapshotting" may i change the destination?
2-there is a way to eventually browse the snapshots for a single file restore, for example if i would revert a single vm in the datastore (which is defined in the dataset) i should be able to revert only the vmdk etc..files for that VM. From the Gui I've seen only the possibility to revert the entire dataset from the snapshot!

thank you all!!!
