    Want to use Solaris with ZFS for storage on a glusterfs server with nfs

    user571876
      Saw you primary question in
      Infiniband bad  outgoing Throughput on 10Gbit HCA
      "I would like to use Solaris with ZFS to provide storage for a glusterfs server with nfs" this is exactly what I want to do.

      But I have two nodes oi_151a6. I have a basic gluster 3.3. set up running as follows, but I am stumped on how to do anything with it, in fact the underlying NFS sub-system has some errors http://pastie.org/4897191 that I don't understand.

      Can I actually do anything with an all OI/Illumos/Solaris infrastructure (no Linux head node) ?

      I would like to know more about your experiences and if you could share your setup and build instructions I would be much obliged

      Thanks in Advance,

          I have no idea if this would work. I'm not familiar with glusterfs and we don't test ZFS with this product.

          What I know is that ZFS is a not a cluster or distributed file system (can't be shared simultaneously between
          2 systems), but it is used with our Solaris Cluster product as a failover file system with NFS. If this is what
          you are asking about, then it would probably work, but who would support this configuration?

          I would ask a glusterfs forum about your errors and how to resolve them.

          Thanks, Cindy
