I know ZFS is usually used for numerous reasons including it's amazing mirroring features. However in this instance the machine I've been tasked with setting up has a RAID-1 setup so I only have one logical disk.
My reason for wanting ZFS is primarily that of snapshots - is this the right tool for the job or is there a better way to efficiently emulate ZFS snapshot?
I'm having a chicken or egg problem - is it possible to install a base RHEL system with one disk (/dev/sda) using ZFS? It seems all references I can find use it to pool numerous disks with the base system not being mentioned. How would I achieve this?
Please let me know if I can clarify this at all as I'm fully aware my explanation is lackluster at best.
