    I can relate with your post. While building and planning my server, I find myself balancing between my desire to build a race car, when in reality I need a tractor. My solution has been to make a list of my needs and determine strategies on needs. I ended up building two servers, one manages my most important documents; being photos, videos, and personal documentation. The data on that server sits on a ZFS RAIDZ3(reliable link a Volvo) volume that is backed up to multiple external devices. One of those devices is my media server, which implements SnapRAID(tractor). Very little data on my media server is backed up, yet it is the target for many of my devices' backups. One of the services I have installed is Plex, which uses a large database, that appreciates fast access, so I maintain all of my Docker data on a ZFS RAID10 volume(race car).
    I realize this doesn't answer your query, yet I hope it satisfies some of your wonderment.

    Here are a couple links to resources I found helpful:
    RAID10 via ZFS Plugin

    I came up with a solution and thought I would post it here for those that are interested. I do not know enough about ZFS to understand what's going on in the plug-in interface, so I found a command line solution.

    sudo zpool create -m /srv/Wharf Zenith mirror ata-Samsung_SSD_870_EVO_1TB_S62xXxXxXxX33D ata-Samsung_SSD_870_EVO_1TB_S62xXxXxXxX829Y mirror ata-Samsung_SSD_870_EVO_1TB_S62xXxXxXxX24V ata-Samsung_SSD_870_EVO_1TB_S62xXxXxXxX75A

    The important tidbit I needed to do that failed my expectations in the past was to set a mount the point: -m /srv/Wharf. This flag allows OMV to display my volume natively, see attached images.

    I am starting a fresh install on my media server; heavily dependent on Docker. Would it make sense to apply this fix now prior to installing Docker?

    Here is the solution to disable apparmor on the system and it worked on my test system (not harmful since apparmor package is not installed):

    sudo mkdir -p /etc/default/grub.d
    echo 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="$GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT apparmor=0"' | sudo tee /etc/default/grub.d/apparmor.cfg
    sudo update-grub
    sudo reboot

    I have four(4) 1 TB SSD drives that I would like to use as a fast redundant database drive.
    How do I create a RAID10 using the ZFS Plugin?

    I understand RAID10 in ZFS is simply striping mirrored VDevs. Will I be doing this in several steps or is there an already set method?

    Command Line reference:

    sudo zpool create NAME mirror VDEV1 VDEV2 mirror VDEV3 VDEV4

    sudo zpool create NAME mirror VDEV1 VDEV2
    sudo zpool add NAME mirror VDEV3 VDEV4

    I am doing a fresh install and creating this RAID will be one of my first operations, as it will hold, both my Home directories and Docker data.
