surgeprice.display("ihaveapc.com_336x280_abovepost"); Continuing from part 6, we’ll conclude the series with a recipe for implementing an iSCSI based storage with ZFS in Linux Mint (This tutorial assumes that you don’t have ZFS installed on your system, if you already do, skip to step 4): 1. Issue the following command at the terminal to add ubuntu-zfs repository to the system – sudo...

Continuing from part 5, we’ll learn about ZFS snapshots and ZFS clones in this post: In last post, we created a ZFS data set ‘myPool/myData’. Let’s see how we can backup and restore data using ZFS snapshots and ZFS clones. 1. ZFS snapshot is a point-in-time checkpoint of a dataset. ZFS snapshot is read-only and cannot be modified. You can create a ZFS snapshot of a ZFS data...

Continuing from part 4, in today’s post we’ll learn how to create ZFS data set for a user and mount it to a directory for use: 1. Issue the following commands at the terminal to view zpool status and the available capacity – sudo zpool status sudo zfs list 2. Now, we’ll create a ZFS data set called ‘myData’ in ZFS pool ‘myPool’ and enable compression,...

Continuing from Part 3, in this part of the tutorial, we will learn about modifying the properties of the ZFS pool and destroying the ZFS pool. 1. Let us view the list of ZFS pools available in the system. Issue the following command at the terminal – sudo zpool list2. As seen in the previous step, we have a ZFS pool called ‘MyPool60’ available on the system. Now, we will learn...

Continuing from Part 2, in this third part of the tutorial, well learn how to create ZFS storage pools with RAID 10, RAID 50 and RAID 60. We will use the same 9 virtual HDDs of 1 GB each used in Part 2 to create these pools after destroying the ZFS pool MyPool1, MyPool2 and MyPool3 (more on destroying ZFS storage pools in Part 4). RAID 10 is a series of striped mirrors. In this tutorial, we’ll...

Continuing from Part 1, in this second part of the tutorial we’ll learn how to create ZFS storage pools with different RAID levels. For demonstration purpose, we have added 9 virtual HDDs to our system with 1 GB capacity each. Let’s install ‘lsscsi’ utility to list these HDDs. 1. Issue the following command at the terminal to install ‘lsscsi’ – sudo apt-get...
