I'd just like to circle back to this since I am currently in the middle of my migration. Using Sol 11.3 zpool,
zpool create -o version=28 will allow the creation a version 6(?) zfs filesystem BY DEFAULT. Open Indiana
will see the pool but not be able to mount the filesystem, and if you then upgrade that pool you will have
a pool with a filesystem that no operating system can mount - so glad I hadn't made irreversible data
decisions at that point...
zpool create -o version=28 -O version=5 <stuff>
zfs create -o version=5 <stuff>
As the docs read the, -o version=5 on zfs create is probably unnecessary after the -O version=5 on the zpool
create. But no trust at this point, I have to get the data moved, and securely, and my only choice is an in-place
I also tried specifying -o ashift=12 when building these pools and the Sol11.3 zpool command said ashift
was not an option.
I'll miss this community, it was a really nice place back in the late 90's and early 00's, and your general
good will towards each other was always decent, despite some differing opinions. I'm a few clicks away
from finishing my Open Indiana install. I picked the full desktop OI over the server OmniOS because I figure
I'll be happier in the long run if I just go ahead and install a more complete install. And mirrored SSD for OS
disk space is cheap.
My final Sol x86 config was an Asus Z97-WS motherboard with 32gb 1600DDR3 memory, an LSI9207-8i and
an LSI9211-4i, both fully populated with 2tb drives.. I have a 2nd LSI9207-8i on order and 9 new Toshiba 4tb
enterprise drives. It is a long way from the first x86 build I did in '06 or so - had to download and install some
Marvell 92xx series drivers for ethernet, had a couple 500gb drives.
My last SPARC was a Sunblade 1K as a SunRay server with an Ultra2 as a file server - fully loaded D1000.
Started with an IPX at home from work in '95 - finished Doom I on that IPX. Upgraded from the IPX to an
SS10, and eventually through a handful of SS20s - I think I owned nearly every CPU manufactured for that
thing over the time I owned them.
My admin user's home directory didn't get migrated. I backed it up as I started the process. It's still there,
on a pair of SSDs in a hard drive storage box, next to my previous retired x86 build. I don't think there's
anything missing; I don't think I'll boot them just to look - moving forward.
Larry, enjoy your yachts. Scott, the network really is the computer.
