    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Yes, technically I do agree. Maybe this is a psych/mind-at-rest thing...like you *did* switch off the coffee-maker, you *know* it, you well *remember* that you did, but when you leave home, you double check (or even pull the plug;)

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    This is IMHO not ZFS related, but before employing a disk and deploying it into an array, I'd like to know if it is up to specs and standards. I am using a "burn-in", just like memtest for RAM on new and used/migrated disks. For new disks I run the tool at least 3x and 1x for a used one...if...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    thanks for your answer. It's the TXT install CD and it installs just fine on another system (tested a VM). I as well installed Solaris11-Express and then applied the pkg update procedure. The upgrade process did run fine and upon reboot, the system hangs after the first kernel prompt. Is...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I did build another box with an AMD Opteron 3350HE (AM3+) and with 8GB ECC memory. The CPU features AES-NI but Solaris 11-Express would not recognise it. However, Solaris 11.1 refuses to install. The installer would hang forever "tranferring" data to disk (using a S-ATA SSD). OI...

    Oh, right...you're using 2 vdevs in a single pool...sorry, I misread your info. Good that you have another pool with enough space to hold your data. IMHO a zfs send/receive from your old pool to a new folder in your backup pool and then back to yoiur newly created pool should do the trick.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Yes, the new Seagate disks will not fit in your old pool. Also, replacing the old ones is a one-at-a-time operation...time consuming and potentially dangerous (giving unnecessary stress to the old disks during resilvering of each and every new one). If you can mount all five new disks in...

    ...you happen to have a snap on that pool or source-folder?

    Thanks. That info is very much appreciated.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Hi folks, need your help here, I am afraid. My all-in-one gave me a PSOD due to a RDIMM gone bad. Now one of my pools shows: root@tank:~# zpool status -v tank pool: tank state: ONLINE status: One or more devices has experienced an error resulting in data corruption...

    What's the movitivation behind? A single zfs-folder will cost you nothing....maybe a couple hundred you will notice ;) If you need to do that, you will need to migrate to SAMBA, AFAIK

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    ...honestly, I'd rather go and buy a small box with disks, build a ZFS array (with or w/o redundancy) and perform a zsf send / zfs receive job. This wll definitely get everything back and forth ... complete and simple. maybe a HP Microserver N40L is a good option... Edit: ouups...missed the...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    This is a concept which looks tempting for home use, for sure. Sorry, but I cannot offer any experience with snapraid ATM. ...some questions though: How does solaris CIFS Server fit into the equation with 1pool=1vdev=1disk? Assuming that I want to provide single share to hold my media, which...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Because I wanted to stay on SOL11.0 (Powermangement still working), that's exactly what I did. @_Gea...with v0.8l3 I am unable to create an encrypted ZFS-Folder via GUI/napp-it. The option remains as unavailable, although pools are created with ZFS-V31. (...it for sure did work in the "old...

    mptsas0 Firmware version v9.0.0.0 (?) ...this is a M1015, flashed to IT mode, isn't it? The above indicates a firmware that is quite old...I'd upgrade, to latest version P15, just in case.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Yes I understand. Maybe I have to excuse because english is not my native tongue. I have been looking for an alternative to ESXi ever since. And of course, I looked into smartOS as soon as kvm support was announced. I decided to stay away from it, so I cannot offer real life experience which...
