How to partition 1.5TB disk?
If I make a big rpool out of the entire disk, then I have will have severe problems if I decide to reinstall Solaris. Where to copy 1.5TB data before reinstall??
I therefore want to create a 200GB rpool. There will be virtual machines, etc. And I want to have a 800GB ZFS storage partition.
The question is, how do I create this 800GB storage partition? Via "format" command? I first create a partition in "format" which is 800GB, and then I issue "zpool create 800GB partition"? What is the syntax?
(My first partition is WindowsXP)
