There has been much progress on the new server at home which I will write up later. Today I’ll dig into what I have done to make samba and ZFS play well together. As I mentioned getting Samba running was easy. However there is a bit more that you can do to make ZFS even and Samba even better together.
Why not have zfs take a snapshot whenever you login to the PC? So in addition to the regular snapshots I also get one of the home directory of each user when they login.
