The zfs create command automatically mounts the newly created file system, if it is created successfully. By default, file systems are mounted as /dataset, using the dataset name provided with the create subcommand. In this example, the newly created jeff file system is mounted at /tank/home/jeff. For more information about automatically managed mount points, see Managing ZFS Mount Points.
For more information about the zfs create command, see the zfs(1M) man page.
In the following example, a file system named jeff is created in the tank/home file system.
# zfs create tank/home/jeffExample 28 Creating a ZFS File System Using File System Properties
You can set file system properties when a file system is created. In the following example, a mount point of /export/zfs is created for the tank/home file system:
# zfs create -o mountpoint=/export/zfs tank/home
