I had ZFS problems with Beta, solved by reverting back to 11.2 (I
pretested in a virtual instance without ZFS and without trouble). I am
presently running 12.0 in one virtual instance and on one consumer-grade 
bare metal, which has a known memory problem. 12.0 is working in those
two cases.

Bare metal:
