After a dataset is delegated to a zone, the zone administrator can control specific dataset properties. After a dataset is delegated to a zone, all its ancestors are visible as read-only datasets, while the dataset itself is writable, as are all of its descendents. For example, consider the following configuration:
global# zfs list -Ho name tank tank/home tank/data tank/data/matrix tank/data/zion tank/data/zion/home
If tank/data/zion were added to a zone with the default zion alias, each dataset would have the following properties.
Note that every parent of tank/zone/zion is invisible and all descendants are writable. The zone administrator cannot change the zoned property because doing so would expose a security risk that described in the next section.
Privileged users in the zone can change any other settable property, except for quota and reservation properties. This behavior allows the global zone administrator to control the disk space consumption of all datasets used by the non-global zone.
In addition, the share.nfs and mountpoint properties cannot be changed by the global zone administrator after a dataset has been delegated to a non-global zone.
