    ZFS FreeBSD 11 ZFS issues, are they a problem in R12?

    Hi, I was reading the errata for 11 and 12. It looks like there are some serious issues with ZFS in R11 but the R12 errata does not include any ZFS issues. Is it the case that those issues including the "no work around" for R11 do not exist in R12, because they were fixed in code, or have...

    Since this is not a hard technical question it was placed in off-topic. Please let me know if I should move it. When using geli encryption on larger ZFS machines, it would seem practical to have all of the disks share the same master key so that the administrator would not have to enter a...
