Thanks for your kind answer. I am not an Oracle consumer.

I am running a home ZFS server under Solaris Express 11 because this was 
what worked for me at the time I built the server, around November 15th, 
2010, at a time when, according to my experience, OpenIndiana was all 
but stable, and, for any reason, I couldn't make Nexenta work for me 
either. Since SEx 11 worked - and has worked reliably so far - I 
decided  to use that for a while, in hope OpenIndiana would become 
usable for my purposes. In the process I learnt everything I know on 
*nix, and on Solaris in particular. Obviously this is not much.

When I switch back to a non-commercial OS (assuming SEx 11 *is* 
commercial), I'll have to make a choice between OpenIndiana and, say, 
FreeBSD. One of the criteria I'll use will surely be the willingness of 
people to provide help to neophytes. Back to my initial concern, I fail 
to see why a question on how to best backup a ZFS server could be off-topic.
