Hi

New to this game, tried Freenas first for many hours, just not booting up, tried Nas4Free and up and running in 10mins, perfect.

My question, (after searching the net with no answer) is i have four 1TB Drives i want to stripe two together and mirror to the other two drives which are striped with all with ZFS, can this be done, and how???

you can do exactly oppossite

create a mirror and stripe "n" mirrors (2 in your case)

create 2 mirror vdev and next create a pool using your previously created vdev ( mirror)

This is a very fast an secure way to create a pool because, you only need 2 new disk to expand your pool ( 2 disk in a mirror to create a new vdev and use this vdev to expand your pool).

This is not the raid 10 (1 + 0) but the raid (0 + 1) you describe.

raulfg3 gives you the solution for ZFS but it is (1 + 0)
