Horror Stories with Sun ZFS?

I'm wondering if anyone has any really good or bad experiences with the Sun Platform (ZFS)?  We're considering purchasing a pair of 7320's in a failover cluster.

Only thing I don't like is that they have a fancy schmancy web-enabled configurator / system manager that is web-enabled, so you can just http:// to it via an obscure port number to pretty much do whatever via a GUI and not have to be on local machine .. but what I don't like is that this isn't turned on or auto-configured by default.

This is a double-edged sword. By NOT configuring it with defaults, then they rightly protect the system, as newbie sysadmins would surely not even be aware of this feature ... but then most people never even discover it is there in first place so they have to do some configuration the hard way.
