I finally bit the bullet and switched to Proxmox from Ubuntu 18.04.
I’ve imported my pool fine (WD Red 4TB x 8 in raidz2).
I’ve got a love–hate relationship with Proxmox currently. I love the fact that I can finally run Debian for my VM, but managing how my VM’s interact with the ZFS pool is troublesome.
Right now I just have CIFS/Samba running on the Proxmox hypervisor with read permissions as a temporary solution.
Each application on my VM runs under it’s own nologin user and I want to be able to decide what directories it can access.
I’ve tried the built-in method in Proxmox which is to create ZFS volumes, but this seems to create so much padding space on raidz2 that it’s not really worth it.
Do I just need to read up on CIFS more (I do have the O’reilly book)? Or is there a better way of doing this that I’m missing? RTFM?
