Formatting for a UFS system

#1

Post by philm » 30 May 2017 16:59

Hello everyone,

I currently have a setup of N4F v10.3.0.3 and my admin needs to setup AD on our NAS. Looking into, I found the following tutorial guide:
viewtopic.php?f=98&t=9056

The guide states that I need to format some drives as UFS and I should follow this guide to do it:
viewtopic.php?f=55&t=9126

However, there is one small issue. All of the drives that we have are formatted as ZFS. I was wondering if there is a method out there where I can reformat one of my drives for the UFS partition without having to completely rebuild my ZFS pool.

I know that the Samba service will create a default NTFS ACL and doesn't work with the ZFS system (according to the first link that I posted). If I am unable to edit the ZFS pool (which I think that it is not a good idea to), then is there a way that I can get the SAMBA to work on a ZFS partition?

Basically, what can I do if all of my HDDs are on the ZFS pool

SO looking through the tutorial on creating a UFS partition, is it possible to partition my zfs pool that I have already created?

no.

but you can create a zvol and format it using UFS. (Is not the same that you say)
12.0.0.4 (revision 6766)+OBI on SUPERMICRO X8SIL-F 8GB of ECC RAM, 12x3TB disk in 3 vdev in RaidZ1 = 32TB Raw size only 22TB usable

Hello raulfg3,

I am looking into zvol right now. From reading, it looks like it is a block device which is a file on the drive that kinda acts as a hard drive (in a very simplistic veiw).

I apologize, I am still learning a little bit about this server stuff

Ok, I was able to create a new zvol and format it to UFS by following this tutorial:
