Purpose

This document is provided to assist in troubleshooting ZFS System boot issues in a Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System or a ZFS Storage Appliance. As the appliance heavily uses ZFS and its features, it is not easy to decide if an observed symptom is related to a pure ZFS issue or it is related to one feature of the appliance or it is even a performance topic.

It could also be the opposite way round, a performance discussion could end up in a ZFS related issue.

To discuss this information further with Oracle experts and industry peers, we encourage you to review, join or start a discussion in the My Oracle Support Community - Disk Storage ZFS Storage Appliance Community
