Solved: ZFSRAID1 (RAID5) on OSX?

Postby thedarkhalf » Thu Nov 19, 2020 5:44 pm

Is this possible to do? I have 4 drive bay that I want to format into either a ZFS Raid1.

I tried OpenZFS for OSX and ran the following

sudo zpool create -f -o ashift=12 -O casesensitivity=insensitive -O normalization=formD UltraMega disk4 disk5 disk6 disk7

This creates it, but it doesnt looks like it's zfsraid1.. it's just a stripped array. it's showing as 54TB available from 4x 14TB drives.

Any help would be greatly appreciaetd. Thanks!

You created a stripe: Put in the word "raidz" and you'll be set.


sudo zpool create -f -o ashift=12 -O casesensitivity=insensitive -O normalization=formD UltraMega raidz disk4 disk5 disk6 disk7
