Hi, everyone!

I have a beginner's question:

I must configure a small file server. It only has two disk drives, and they are (forcibly) destined to be used in a mirrored, hot-spare configuration.

The OS is installed and working, and rpool is mirrored on the two disks.

The question is: I want to create some ZFS file systems for sharing them via CIFS. But given my limited configuration:

* Am I forced to create the new filesystems directly on rpool?

You're not forced, but in your situation is is the only practical option.

* Or should I create file-based pools and then create the new filesystems on them?

Bad idea!
