CentOS-release.x86_64-7-0.1406.el7.CentOS.2.5 @updates zfs-release.noarch-1-2.el7.CentOS @/zfs-release.el7.noarch

I am in the process of setting up a CentOS-7 workstation which, eventually, will be a kvm host for several versions of MS-Windows. Before I get to that point I wish to experiment with zfs. I have a couple of questions:

Q1. Finding a good install tutorial for zfs on CentOS-7 has so far eluded my google-fu. Would someone be so kind as to provide either recommendations for same or direct how-to instructions? And any gotchas.

Q2. https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/issues/2575 seems to be of some concern for CentOS-7 users. Are others experiencing this or is it specific to raid users?

  • what do you mean by ‘raid users’ ? I saw nothing on that long thread of misdirection that appeared to be raid related. mostly, it appeared people were trying to use rc.local to fix things which should have been fixed in systemd via service dependencies.

  • the issue was that the zfs servers were starting before LUKS
    (cryptsetup.target) made the logical devices available, not that zfs happened to be using a raidz
