Because svccfg(1M) is broken, and I broke it. Back in 2007, I added a feature to SMF that allowed for property groups that could contain sensitive information, readable only by users with appropriate privileges. The idea was that you could add a "read_authorization" property to a property group, and anyone who was neither privileged (basically, root) nor ...

Much has happened since I asked this question in October 2010. As of September 2013, a new collaboration known as OpenZFS will serve as a central site for several ZFS projects. The new site is http://open-zfs.org/ (with a dash) Today at LinuxCon North America, Brian Behlendorf and Matthew Ahrens are announcing that members from the illumos, zfsonlinux.org, ...

I'll ask, how important is it that you specifically use KVM? My preference for the type of solution you're inquiring about is to build around VMWare ESXi. You can build an all-in-one server running VMWare ESXi booting from flash media (SDHC, USB, CF) and leverage the DirectPath I/O (PCI-passthrough) available on current servers to present a SAS/SATA HBA to ...

I've been using SmartOS and KVM in production for a few months now and am very happy with it. It sounds like it should suit your needs just fine. All the ZFS stuff you require is supported. For the monitoring stuff you'll need setup up some third party stuff though. I'm working a couple of projects related to monitoring and specifically for doing the things ...

Oracle officially killed OpenSolaris, so the website will not be updated anymore. FreeBSD is working with the IllumOS project to advance ZFS at this point (their website is still a bit scant on details). I don't know if these changes are derived from actual Solaris 11 development or not, nor if the changes will be merged into the official project (a likely ...

Are all FreeBSD features available under Illumos? No, there are FreeBSD features that aren't available under Illumos based OSes, and there are also Illumos based OS features that are not in FreeBSD. I would recommend you to install OpenIndiana, SmartOS, Illumian, Omnios and experiment with the ones closest to your need to make your opinion.

When I run format, and select disk 0, I'm told c4t0d0s3 is part of the root pool: This would be because you've screwed up the slice - it is overlapping with c4t0d0s0. You would need a slice starting at cylinder 3913 to remove the overlap. Then you should be able to add it as a vdev to another pool (if this is what you are after). If you just want to ...

The zfs mailing list remains on opensolaris.org, and Oracle has not established a new public website for their ongoing ZFS development project. Update (2013): The opensolaris.org website has now been shut down, and Oracle’s ZFS mailing list has moved to the new Solaris-ZFS.java.net website.

For versions up to 28, you can still browse the repository in OpenSolaris web site: http://src.opensolaris.org/source/history/onnv/onnv-gate/usr/src/uts/common/sys/fs/zfs.h http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/onnv/onnv-gate/usr/src/uts/common/sys/fs/zfs.h#348 Update: This repository has moved to: ...

Nexenta, Joyent, and a handful of others seem to have gotten behind Illumos

You need to first initiate devfsadm cleanup subroutines. # devfsadm -C -c disk -v Then, configure and create device path # devfsadm -c disk -v If that is unsuccessful, then... Remove the disk. # cfgadm -c unconfigure sata0/5::dsk/c2t5d0 Initiate devfsadm cleanup subroutines. # devfsadm -C -c disk -v Verify the disk has been removed. # cfgadm ...

Nexenta is indeed utilizing Illumos as the OS core. From what I understand, the OpenSolaris and ZFS bits they are using are truely open-sourced, and that genie can't be put back in the Sun/Oracle bottle. See this page for Nexenta's statement on this. We are currently building out a 16TB Nexenta Enterprise box... I'll let you know how it goes. Pre-sales ...

What you are looking for is the l2arc_write_max, not l2arc_max_write; same for the boost setting. SSH paste from a Nexenta box: root@lead:/export/home/admin# echo l2arc_write_max/D | mdb -k l2arc_write_max: l2arc_write_max:8388608 root@lead:/export/home/admin# echo l2arc_write_boost/D | mdb -k l2arc_write_boost: l2arc_write_boost: 8388608 You ...

This has worked for me (OI 151a7 Intel). Add this to /etc/system and reboot: * Disable system beep: modinfo | grep "beep" exclude: pit_beep

I'd assume that the replication/cluster modules are unique to NexentaStor. The feature is available to a licensed version of NexentaStor, though, so you don't necessarily have to build your own.

Don't use ifconfig to plumb the interface use ipadm create-if instead. You've also managed to configure the adaptor 9 times, all of which are configured to use DHCP. You should run ipadm delete-addr on all 9 and perhaps even ipadm delete-if vmxnet3. Once you've done that, you should also stop using vmxnet3 interfaces in your virtual machine configuration ...

SmartOS is essentially Illumos so if you know how to mount a CIFS share in Illumos, you can do it in SmartOS. Try mount -F smbfs and of course, the beloved man mount for more specific information.

I have deployed a series of boxes with Nexenta (about 250TB total deployment atm.) There was a learning curve for our Linux only shop, but all in Nexenta is a solid product and ZFS is a fantastic filesystem. I don't regret making the move at all. Oracle has not totally killed OpenSolaris, what they have said is that instead of doing development in public, ...

This would be a controller-specific thing. The newer LSI controllers use the WWN format for disk identification. You don't have any options to do this on other controllers.

It used to be that you had to enable mpxio to get that type of notation. You may want to try enabling it and seeing what happens. http://nilesh-joshi.blogspot.com/2009/08/sun-solaris-mpxio.html

For Linux it is http://zfsonlinux.org - there is ZFS Pool Version 28. Pawel Jakub Dawidek (nickname: PJD) has added the latest open-source ZFS file system version (28) to FreeBSD Current. I suppose FreeBSD ZFS's Home is here http://wiki.freebsd.org/ZFS Above are kernel's modules. But there is kernel independent application for Linux in user space ...
