External ZFS

Oct 2, 2023
Hi everyone,

I have an external storage, which ist able to present an zfs pool. Is it possible to mount this pool in PBS and use ist for backups?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Not recommended to use non-local storage but yes, NFS/SMB/iSCSI will work. But you will have to mount it manually and point your datastore to its mountpoint.
