Can anyone explain to me what the openindiana-1 filesystem is all
about?I thought it was the "backup" copy of the openindiana filesystem,
when you apply OS updates, but that doesn't seem to be the case...

I have time-slider enabled for rpool/ROOT/openindiana.It has a daily
snapshot (amongst others).But every day when the new daily snap is
taken, the old daily snap rotates into the rpool/ROOT/openindiana-1
filesystem.This is messing up my cron-scheduled "zfs send" script -
which detects that the rpool/ROOT/openindiana filesystem no longer has
the old daily snapshot, and therefore has no snapshot in common with the
receiving system, and therefore sends a new full backup every night.

To make matters more confusing, when I run "mount" and when I zfs get
all | grep -i mount, I see / on rpool/ROOT/openindiana-1

It is a new boot environment see beadm(1M) - you must have done some 'pkg update' or 'pkg install' option that created a new BE.

It would seem, I shouldn't be backing up openindiana, but instead,
backup openindiana-1?I would have sworn, out-of-the-box, there was no
openindiana-1.Am I simply wrong?

Initially there wouldn't have been.

Are you doing the zfs send on your own or letting time-slider do it for you ?
