Using Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance as an Object Store Repository

    Hello Melvis,

    This is nice feature. I've actually tested it and found very annoying problem in this implementation. As soon as ZFS storage appliance creates hidden .$EXTEND directory in share (this is created automatically and is visible only if you go into Solaris share) - then all requests to URL representing account - fail with permission problem. Truss invoked on httpd process shows that it fails on .$EXTEND directory and returns this problem as generic permission problem to swiftclient user.

    Another question I have: we frequently set mountpoint on project level changing it from /export to somthing like "/export/<project_name>". This allows us to have the same share names and having same share paths (like /export/<project_name>/<share_name>). From document it looks like directory under "/export" is used as Swift account. Does this mean that using 3-level mountpoint for shares is not supported for object storage use?
