Esxi, OpenSolaris, and ZFS


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm looking to build a file server on OpenSolaris that uses a ZFS file system on 3 1.5TB drives. My question is: Can I install this as a VM on top of Esxi? I'd like to give OpenSolaris access to each of the drives individually, and have it manage the ZFS.

Is this a good idea? Would I lose any of the benefits of ZFS?
