In Solaris 10 6/06 man page for
zfs send, it says
The format of the stream is evolving. No backwards compatibility is guaranteed. You may not be able to receive your streams in future versions of ZFS.
Now that was 5 years ago. Now I want to know if Solaris 11 Express (latest) can receive streams from Solaris 10 6/06? I would like to have a backup server on the latest version of Solaris if possible. If not, then I want to know which version caused the incompatibility?
zpool upgrade -v shows the last version as number 3.
This article is related to OpenSolaris might answer the question but I do not know how the Nevada builds correspond to regular Solaris: http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Community+Group+on/2008042301
I would most appreciate if there was a way to translate old ZFS streams to the new format, so I don't have to be held back to an old version in this project?
