Yesterday I did my first OMV install and it's looking good so far. I was even able to get ISCSI TGT up running on my first attempt. I also tried to install the zfs plugins but it failed on install for some reason and I didn't get the fault messages. So my ISCSI backing store ended up at raid 5 system /dev/md0 with an image on /mnt/iSCSI with no filesystem. In Windows, I formatted the filesystem in exFAT since I also like to access my iSCSI from my Mac. Would zfs make my iSCSI faster or are there other things I can do to make the system faster and/or safer? Can I for instance add CHAP authenticating by adding some extra options?
