I have a machine with a simple zfs root mirror pool (2 disks) that I'd
like to shrink and I wondered what would be the best approach to do
I was thinking of booting on a usb stick, remove one physical disk from
the mirror, gpart resize the partition, create a new zpool, and finally
a pair of zfs snapshot / send from the old pool to the new one .. Would
that work? Any caveats?
