Examples of Storing Disk Images With ZFS

    The following examples:

  1. Create a 10-gigabyte image on a ZFS volume or file.

  2. Export the ZFS volume or file as a virtual disk. The syntax to export a ZFS volume or file is the same, but the path to the backend is different.

  3. Assign the exported ZFS volume or file to a guest domain.

When the guest domain is started, the ZFS volume or file appears as a virtual disk on which the Solaris OS can be installed.
