ZFS on FreeBSD - caution when editing /etc/fstab

August 11, 2011

Note to self:

When adding a mountpoint to /etc/fstab on a ZFS on root FreeBSD system, add the option "late" or the system will fail to boot. This forumpost was enlightening.

Using ZFS with GPT partitions might be a good way to replace MBR for future installs.
