comment ZFS: How do you restore the correct number of copies after losing a drive?
"There is no redundancy at the pool level so there is no way to replace the faulty disk by a new one." This doesn't seem relevant. Why do I care about redundancy at the pool level? copies=3 gives me redundancy at the file level. It sure seems like replacing the failing disk + scrub gets back to a good state.

This directly conflicts with what @Redmumba says - and Redmumba provides links to code. Can you cite some sources for what you're saying? In particular, I'd love to see good citations for why you think copies=N isn't going to cope with whole device failure - that doesn't match with anything I've read.

comment Cooling Server Closet - No A/C Is Possible
People and silence are FAR more important than extending the life of the equipment. Suggesting headphones as a solution is just bizarre.

Didn't do anything to improve it for me, unfortunately. Still having the problem.

comment Cygwin sshd on Windows 7 issue
Didn't help in my case: James@Greine:/var/log$ ls -ld /var/empty drwx------+ 1 cyg_server root 0 2010-05-11 07:34 /var/empty But I'm still getting the "/var/empty must be owned by root and not group or world-writable." message in the log and sshd isn't starting.
