I'm new to FreeBSD. Been experimenting with 8.0-RC1 and zfs in a VM. Really haven't even installed it yet, just getting familiar with zfs usage from the fixit environment. I experienced some strange behavior and was wondering if this would warrant a bug report:
1. load zfs from bootloader prompt and then boot. 2. enter fixit environment. 3. import zpool (in this case a 2 disk vmware mirror named sodpool) 4. cd to previously created snapshot at sodpool/test/myfs/.zfs/snapshot/one 5. attempting to create a new file here results in: Fixit# echo hello > hello.txt cannot create hello.txt: Read-only file system 6. That seems like the desired response. Next, attempt to modify a file that already exists in the snapshot: Fixit# echo hello >> test.txt panic: dirtying snapshot! I know I'm not supposed to be modifying a snapshot file, but a panic doesn't seem like the best response to this situation. I'm using DVD iso named 8.0-RC1-amd64-dvd1.iso This bug report has the same panic but the scenario is different: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/138764 Is there someplace else I should check for existing issues? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
