Solaris 10 5/08 and zfs on JackRabbit

Yeah, it works.

Looking for some benchmark tools now. Installation was ok, though I thought that the crash after the driver installation was, well, an interesting turn.

But it works, so I won’t complain too much.

smc was a pleasure. Well, no. First time it took 30 minutes before I decided to reboot the box (after the driver install crash). Then after that, in shades of a Redhat-ism, it refused to correctly label the drive. The drive demanded an EFI label. smc wasn’t able to do that (wasn’t obvious after poking at it). Had to do it by hand with format -e. And that still didn’t work. Gave up, googled for creating a zfs file system. WAAAYYY too much marketing drivel on zfs. WAAAYYY too many fan-boi’s out there. WAAAYY too little useful information. This one was helpful, as was this.

Now I am seeking out compilers so I can build bonnie++ and IOzone among others.
