Specifying a RAID Configuration

This example specifies a RAID configuration using the two disks c0t0d0 and c0t1d0. This manifest is similar to the manifest for a mirrored configuration as shown in Example 10–3. One difference between the two manifests is that the value of the redundancy attribute is raidz instead of mirror. See the zpool(1M) man page for information about redundancy types. Another difference is that the ZFS pool is not named rpool, because rpool implies the root pool. By default, the value of the is_root attribute of the zpool element is false, so that assignment could be omitted in this example. Because no root pool is specified, do not configure an initial user for this installation.
