# Regarding the "sharenfs" property, we can make all zfs filesystems that have the property
# "on", automatically being exported. It persists over a reboot. We can run individual
# "zfs share" commands for specific filesystems (for this to work, obviously, nfs service
# must be started):
#
# zfs set sharenfs=on $ZPOOL/$ZFSFS
#
# zfs share -a    # or "zfs share $ZPOOL/$ZFSFS"
#
# showmount -e
#    Export list for <myserver>:
#    /zfs01 *



# Change F.S. mount point (obviously to carry out this operation F.S. shouldn't be in use)

zfs list | grep $ZPOOL/$ZFSFS
