i apologize if this questions has been asked recently but i couldn`t
find a clear answer to that, so bear with me a little here ^^
In the past i played around with ZFS, can`t say i have much experience
with it but i know the "essentials" about it, i guess. ^^
When i wanted to go the ZFS route in a home environment i usually went
for OmniOS + napp-it, cause i was always under the impression that
you get the latest ZFS development on OmniOS after Oracle stopped caring
Furthermore, the convenience of a in kernel CIFS implementation which
made zfs snapshots accessible under previous versions for windows
clients was just great.
But of course there is so much to like about freebsd and the last time i
checked about freebsd and zfs was a couple of years ago so i am afraid i
am not totally up2date.
That being said i got a few questions for you guys:
- Are OmniOS and FreeBSD are on the same ZFS version (or at least equal
- Am i able to build a prooduction stable zfs filer with freebsd that
supports zfs snapshots for windows clients the same way OmniOS does.
I did a little bit of research on this and it was a little bit vague but
it seems its possible with FreeBSD and Samba4. Am i on the right track
here or are there any other maybe better ways to make
zfs snapshots and rollbacks easily doable for windows client machines.
Thank you guys for helping me out.
