Replicated filesystems can be exported read-only to NAS clients. This can be used to verify the replicated data or to perform backups or other intensive operations on the replicated data (offloading such work from the source ZFSSA).
The filesystem's contents always match the most recently received replication snapshot for that filesystem. This may be newer than the most recently received snapshot for the entire package, and it may not match the most recent snapshot for other shares in the same package. See Snapshots and Data Consistency for details.
Replication updates are applied atomically at the filesystem level. Clients looking at replicated files will see replication updates as an instantaneous change in the underlying filesystem. Clients working with files deleted in the most recent update will see errors. Clients working with files changed in the most recent update will immediately see the updated contents.
Replicated filesystems are not exported by default. They are exported by modifying the "exported" property of the project or share using the BUI or CLI:
Figure 13-7 Inherited Properties
This property is inherited like other share properties. This property is not shown for local projects and shares because they are always exported. Additionally, severing replication (which converts the package into a local project) causes the package's shares to become exported.
Replicated LUNs currently cannot be exported. They must be first cloned or the replication package severed in order to export their contents.
