If these instructions are current


then you are portraying the process as being much simpler than it really is.

The real power of ZFS is with very large JBODs, or multiples of same.
When you state it works "flawlessly", how many disks are you talking
about?  What features have you actually tested?

Or do you simply have a single disk formatted with ZFS?  I'm guessing
most folks here actually interested in ZFS aren't the single disk crowd,
and want to know if ZFS Linux is working flawlessly with real storage.
