2 disks and mirrored *and* a hotspare ...?? Imho you need 3 disks to do this setup.
I just wanted to make sure you have your idea's correct before you start.

My 2 cents.

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

Which configuration do you think can be better for my (forced) conditions?

Many thanks for your attention, have a nice day.

Raúl.
