I encouontered strange problem with zfs compressed volume that is shared
out over nfs.
volume is created with command:
# zpool create example /dev/da1
# zfs set compression=gzip data/configuration
Now my "data" is shared with NFS and all servers have access to
"configuration" volume. All NFS clients can write to volume and show
written files over network. What is missing is files from server side-
it does not show any file on compressed volume that is written by
clients over NFS. If I copy same files/directories to nfs root eg.
"data" then I can access files from server. Where are my files?
# zpool status
