    ZFS and Server 20.04

    Seems I'm having my first let down. ZFS does not appear to be available on the server (standard) installer.

    Quoting from https://ubuntu.com/blog/enhancing-ou...n-introduction
    We want to support ZFS on root as an experimental installer option, initially for desktop, but keeping the layout extensible for server later on.

    I am using ZFS as my FS chosen during the installation. It is quite fast on my NVme SSD. The one problem I have is that I can't figure out how to upgrade the kernel.

    Define upgrade?
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
    should keep you current.
    If your speaking of the mainline kernels: https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
    You'll have to install those by hand.
    EDIT: your kernel will stay as updated as your zfs allows it.
    EDIT2:
    Code:
    zpool status && df -h /me1
      pool: me1
     state: ONLINE
      scan: none requested
    config:
    
    	NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
    	me1         ONLINE       0     0     0
    	  sdb       ONLINE       0     0     0

    Yes. That is a significant problem. Until it is solved I have to pass on this.

    Re: ZFS and Server 20.04

    I even had problems with ZFS during the HWE stack upgrade of 18.04. Upgrading to a not yet supported version of Linux is suicidal. ZFS on Linux latest supported kernel is Linux 5.3 for their release 0.8.2 and that is one version higher than the official version of Ubuntu. However many bugs solved in 0.8.2 have been integrated in the Ubuntu ZFS release 0.8.1.
