What I wanted was zfs(8) rename.
Let me explain.
After doing my:
zfs send email@example.com:06:33 | mbuffer | ssh -t firstname.lastname@example.org 'zfs receive system/usr/local/bacula/FromKraken'
I quite, correctly, wound up with system/usr/local/bacula/FromKraken, not the system/usr/local/bacula which I wanted.
Here’s how I fixed that, but first, I took snapshots, in case I messed up:
# zfs snapshot system/usr/local/bacula@BeforeMovingKrakenUpOneLevel # zfs snapshot system/usr/local/bacula/FromKraken@BeforeMovingKrakenUpOneLevel
Here is what I started with:
# zfs list | grep bacula NAME USED AVAIL REFER MOUNTPOINT system/usr/local/bacula 7.58T 12.6T 347K /usr/local/bacula system/usr/local/bacula/FromKraken 7.58T 12.6T 7.51T /usr/local/bacula/FromKraken
Then I did this:
# zfs rename system/usr/local/bacula system/usr/local/OldBacula # zfs rename system/usr/local/OldBacula/FromKraken system/usr/local/bacula
Now I have this:
# zfs list | grep -i bacula system/usr/local/OldBacula 347K 12.6T 347K /usr/local/OldBacula system/usr/local/bacula 7.58T 12.6T 7.51T /usr/local/bacula
# zfs list -t snapshot | grep -i bacula system/usr/local/OldBacula@BeforeMovingKrakenUpOneLevel 0 - 347K - email@example.com:10:03 0 - 7.50T - system/usr/local/bacula@AfterInitialSend 0 - 7.50T - firstname.lastname@example.org:08:20 0 - 7.51T - system/usr/local/bacula@BeforeMovingKrakenUpOneLevel 0 - 7.51T -
I will look at merging those snapshots later.
For what it’s worth, this is not the actual layout. I will be using the system/usr/local/bacula filesystem within a jail. That’s where bacula-sd will run. Why? I like to keep major services within a jail. It makes it easier to move the service from one system to another, at least, in theory it does; I’ve not had to use this strategy yet. But I’m sure I will need to one day.
