So I'm reading about ZFS on the FreeBSD ZFS quick-start guide, and I'm stuck at this part: when I attempt to use a device (/dev/da0), it throws an error and the device dissapears until I reboot. :\ Specifically, this: zpool create example/ dev/da0, and throws the error: cannot open '/dev/da0'...

I need an advise and correct direction to my problem. I am a new FreeBSD user. Our recent Windows 10 machine was hit by a Ransomware and it spread to other machines on Network also.
To protect that in future, I added a new HDD on the system and installed FreeBSD 12.0 x64 using HyperV on it...
I am implementing a backup solution for a small webserver. So far, the tools I plan to use:
I want to zfs send an archive of the latest webserver snapshots to another HDD, then sync to cloud (rclone). I am missing a replication tool that does:
zfs send zroot/webserver@snapshot...

Looking to have a daily backup of my postgresql database on a server. It's on a LAN and I want to store the backups on a workstation volume. Should I induce the pg_dump on the FreeBSD server, or the Mac workstation? I'd like to learn how to do it from the server. I have file...

Not real good with scripting. But, I through my hat in the ring.
I was in dire need of a DB backup script that wrote to an inserted, but mostly unmounted rdx drive, regardless of mount situation. I also needed it to keep sanity in that backups older than 30 days needed to be pruned. Logs needed...
In preparation for moving to new hardware I am using dump to try to backup the entire OS, the problem is it appears to be skipping /usr/ even though that is not a separate mount point, which is fine as it is the documented behavior. The toruble is if I try to use dump to backup /usr, it tells me...
Today I made an upgrade of new packages, of which there were many (like all the stuff I use), but the custom configuration appears to be overwritten.
Specifically, I had to manually rewrite the X display manager resources and scripts, and my GWorkspace/WindowMaker integration started to...

Hello, I am using zxfer to replicate/backup ZFS snapshots (created by zfSnap) to the backup server.
zxfer calls this commands internally (read dataset properties):
