FreeNAS 0.7 (rev. 3953) and ZFS

I've tried to use with the latest Nightly Buid of FreeNAS 0.7 (rev. 3953) ZFS. Unfortunately I was not able to import my ZFS-Pool.

The error message just showed the following...

kernel: KLD zfs.ko: depends on opensolaris - not available

Currently there is no solution for this problem :-(

I've got ZFS running on the latest nightly of 0.7 (3953), but I'm not able to mount my ZFS pool under MacOS X. I can mount the SMB share without issue, but not the AFP share. Any ideas?

Hmm.... any information in the message logs?

Absolutely nothing on either host. MacOS just pops up a dialog that says "The volume "scruffy" could not be mounted."

Also, should I be able to mount an NFS share as a user? The only way I can currently mount my NFS share (also the ZFS pool) is to use sudo.

Sorry, I have no idea. Maybe you can double check the settings and the permissions (but I am sure you've already done that)

About NFS... You are abe to use 'Finder' to mount a NFS-Volume. 'Go' -> 'Connect to Server' -> Enter the Server Address (in my case nfs://server/mnt/zpool/zfsbar).
Or you can use the 'terminal' -> 'cd /net/server/mnt/zpoolfoo/zfsbar'

Thanks, I had my syntax wrong on the NFS mount (I didn't give it the full path). I still cannot mount it via AFP, but now that I have it mounted via NFS, it's less of a problem.

Great. Maybe you can ask in the forum about your AFP issue.
