Hi folks,

I'm new to storage systems so your help is appreciated.

I will be building a server with 4 X 1TB disk drives in it (plus 1 for the OS install).

If I wish to use the 4 1TB drives in a RAIDZ "array", is it just a matter of following these steps?

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ZFS/ZPool

Do I need to format the drives first as ZFS? How does one do that? Also, what kind of space do I get? 3TB?

Also, would it be any benifit of using RAIDZ2 with just 4 drives?

Thanks
