I architect things in such a way that I have 1 VM used as a NAS that runs zfs and allows all that nice functionality then all the other VM's run with ufs + nfs mounts. And can actually run a VM with no local disk over iPxe netbooting. I find this very flexible and minimally impacting. Though it does make a single point of failure, that could be cured with some redundancy. -- Rod Grimes rgri...@freebsd.org _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
