FreeBSD 9 booting from a 3 disks ZFS
I already managed to boot FreeBSD from ZFS ; a single disk ZFS pool. Now, let’s see how to boot FreeBSD-9-RELEASE from a ZFS pool made of 3 disks using RAIDZ configuration. I used the FreeBSD-9.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso CD-ROM image.
ZFS root using Debian GNU/kFreeBSD
For a while now FreeBSD had ZFS included. Since 8.x, revision 28 is available. The thing is, I don’t really like the FreeBSD package management ; but I love Debian’s one. Here’s the way to provide a stable Kernel with a decent system management on a powerful filesystem. The installation is done on a virtual machine. The multiple disk configuration has no really use here either than looking at how to do it.
