Doug, Jeff and all the rest of you guys, Thanks a bunch for all the answers!!!

After your answers and a lot of reading this weekend i have some thoughts on
where to start.

Since i need to 'create and export' a ZFS filesystem from a Disk Array, here's
what i will try to do: 1, Make the file system [around 110Gb]
[b](/export/home/ftp)[/b] for my ZONE1 (an Anon FTP Server) in the Global Zone.

2, [b]'Delegate Datasets to an Non-Global Zone'[/b] as described in the
[b]'Containers'[/b] Guide. This way the file system area for the Anon FTP
Server will be 'local'.

Why do you want to use a delegated dataset instead of a filesystem?

It would be very simple to mount a global zone filesystem into the non-global zone using a LOFS mount.

3, This goes for all of my '3' Zones that i will create. I would like to be
able to mount any DISK POOL from the Array and to have the ability to
[b]grow[/b] the filesystems during normal hours since we are hosting the better
part of the world here.

Do you want to grow the filesystem while logged in to the global zone, or non-global zone?

One of my problems is to understand how the access to the Disk Array (HDS
9970V) is being handled by the Non-Global Zone i.e. 'Anon FTP Server' in
regards to the Global Zone where HBA Support is part of the Solaris 10. Where
is the Access and HBA support handled to the ZONE's ? Transparently ?

If you mount the filesystems in the global zone, and then use LOFS mounts into the non-global zone, everything is handled transparently. The processes in the non-global zone 'see' a normal filesystem.
