Hi,=20

I have a question regarding ZFS install on a system setup using an Intel =
Modular.=20

This system runs various flavor of FreeBSD and Linux using a shared pool =
(LUNs).=20
These LUNs have been configured in RAID 6 using the internal controller =
(LSI logic).=20

So from the OS point of view there is just a volume available.=20


I know I should install a system using HBA and JBOD configuration - but =
unfortunately this is not an option for this server.=20

What would you advise ?=20

1. Can I use an existing partition and setup ZFS on this partition using =
a standard Zpool (no RAID).=20

2. Should I use any other solution in order to setup this (like full ZFS =
install on disk using the entire pool with ZFS).=20

3. Should I avoid using ZFS since my system is not well tuned and It =
would be asking for trouble to use ZFS in these conditions.=20


P.S. Stability is a must for this system - so I won't die if you answer =
"3" and tell me to keep on using UFS.=20


Thanks.=20
