Install ZFS Native on Kanotix / Debian Squeeze / Proxmox 2.1 This whole thing below is obsolete. I created a new post with up to date details for Debian 7.0 Wheezy Ok, Ok, I admit, I’m going really crazy now…. as I described here -> Linux: Install Proxmox Virtual Environment on Debian 6.0 Squeeze Distro (Kanopix) I have Proxmov Virtual Environment running on Kanotix Debian. I now spotted that I’m running slowly low of free disk space. I could mount space from my NAS via NFS-CIFS or ISCSI but that’s kind of too easy and for testing purpose the break to success ratio is too low 🙂 . And BTW I love ZFS. so I install it (cause I want to deduplicate and compress). Based on Proxmox http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/ZFS …This is pretty straight forward and almost too easy too.

I found http://www.kanotix.com which has a release called Kanotix Hellfire 2012-05. […]

Solaris 10 Zone Survival Guide by Robert Chase           Original from: http://www.systemv.org/downloads.html Solaris Zones are a lightweight virtual machine product for the Solaris 10 operating system. You may also see zones referred to as Solaris containers.  Older versions of Solaris do not support zones however the zone’s themselves can run older versions of Solaris in addition to Linux. Zones present a number of interesting and new challenges to a Systems Administrator.  For example the machine you have an issue with may be a real machine on physical hardware or a zone.  Knowing the difference can assist you in in making decisions on how to solve the problems you are presented with.  While you may be aware of the user impact of the main machine the system could be running a number of Zones which broaden the user impact regarding decisions that you might make to solve […]
