Mounting ZFS File Systems

ZFS reduces complexity and eases administration. For example, with traditional file systems, you must edit the /etc/vfstab file every time you add a new file system. ZFS has eliminated this requirement by automatically mounting and unmounting file systems according to the properties of the dataset. You do not need to manage ZFS entries in the /etc/vfstab file.
