Re: [Xen-users] Can I create domU on ZFS?

If you are using ZFS fuse, I dont think you would be able to use a FUSE filesystem for VM disks.

Actually you can. You just need a new-enough kernel (2.6.34 works, not really sure which is the lowest version that works).
"Can" doesn't mean you "should" though. While it's "cool" for testing/development, for production purposes it might be better to have a separate zfs box acting as iscsi/nfs NAS.

Hi all,
    I have some computers run on linux, and I will install ZFS for them. Now I want to make a image or lv based on ZFS, then create domUs run on them. 

   Who can tell me if I am right.

Best Wishes
