There are at least a couple of solid reasons *in favor* of partitioning.
#1 It seems common, at least to me, that I'll build a server with let's say,
12 disk slots, and we'll be using 2T disks or something like that. The OS
itself only takes like 30G which means if I don't partition, I'm wasting 1.99T
on each of the first two disks. As a result, when installing the OS, I always
partition rpool down to ~80G or 100G, and I will always add the second
partitions of the first disks to the main data pool.
How do you provision a spare in that situation?
