I am getting ready to install a new server from scratch. While I had been hoping to do a full-radiz2 system, from what I am understanding here, my best bet is to still do a UFS drive for the root/boot partition, since ZFS does not support dump. Is this correct?

If so, I have two questions:
1) How do I at least mirror the root partition during install (instead of the convoluted after-the-fact instructions all over the net)

Actually the after-the-fact instructions are simple to follow, I've done it several times, including painlessly switching remote servers to SVM.

A good recipe is: http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do? assetkey=1-9-83605-1 (for Sun Fire x86)

2) Will it be possible at some point to switch to full-raidz2 without reinstalling the OS?

Thanks,
Malachi
