In a 10-second google, I see that gmirror is a FreeBSD raid tool, perhaps similar in some ways to linux lvm. One similarity it has - It doesn't count. You should be using zpool mirroring. Then ZFS will be aware of the redundant copy, and then ZFS has the potential to correct corruption it finds. If you're doing the redundancy at a level below ZFS, then ZFS can only see one device. It cannot perform as well this way, and it cannot perform such features as redundant copy error correction. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
