Thanks Rob

I also did that as your talk last year shows - however
whenever the /vicep* partition goes over 1000GB I get
negative numbers - not sure why..as you can
see Sun Volume Manager seems to work - do you
(or anyone else on this list) have zfs
/vicep* partitions larger than 1000 GB?


df shows
