Get zfs running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 ssd

Postby zfswehrgang » Wed Apr 18, 2018 11:23 am

What are the steps to get to running zfs on macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 internal ssd?
I want to share an encrypted, data-checksummed volume between macOS and Ubuntu

You download from: https://openzfsonosx.org/w/images/e/ea/ ... _1.7.2.dmg
Mount the disk image in Finder
Run the High Sierra installer
When installer finish:
System Preferences… - Security & Privacy – General – there should be text "…blocked from loading…": click its Allow button
- if text not there exit and enter preferences again

Then: with APFS encrypted, how do you partition, Disk Utility or using zpool?
- I want a separate partition that Ubuntu and grub can read

What is the unicode stuffs, the apple NDK or some better more standardized standard?

then it is some like:
zpool create -fn share disk0s4
- -f: force use of vdev
- -n display configuration
zpool set feature@encryption=enabled share
zfs set checksum=sha256 share
zfs create -oencryption=aes-128-ccm -okeysource=passphrase,prompt share

How do I get to writable, mounted disk space?

On preferences complete, reboot
When we come back, Disk Utility can create ZFS Dataset in addition to APFS and other choices

Hi,

Perhaps you could get started by looking at our Wiki. https://openzfsonosx.org/wiki/Documentation

When encryption is on, I believe it picks the checksum for you.

If you create pool on OsX, I believe ZOL can read it. The other way around you have to disable a couple of ZOL only features, like large_dnode.

Best is to use zpool to create the disk into a pool like shown, no reason to use DiskUtility etc, unless you are trying to share partitions with other filesystems.
