Solaris ZFS Administration Guide

ZFS and File System Mirror Mounts

Solaris Express Community Edition, build 77: In this Solaris release, NFSv4 mount enhancements are provided to make ZFS file systems more accessible to NFS clients.

When file systems are created on the NFS server, the NFS client can automatically discover these newly created file systems within their existing mount of a parent file system.

For example, if the server neo already shares the tank file system and client zee has it mounted, /tank/baz is automatically visible on the client after it is created on the server.

zee# mount neo:/tank /mnt
zee# ls /mnt
baa    bar

neo# zfs create tank/baz

zee% ls /mnt
baa    bar    baz
zee% ls /mnt/baz
file1    file2
