There's a fork in the road, and you're asking people who've gone down the other fork for directions. You might reasonably expect those directions to start with: go back to the fork and go the other way, and, failing that, to ask a traveller who's taken the same fork as you. That response doesn't want for courtesy or respect.

> 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.
