How to create a ZFS NAS with Solaris Express 11 (as a vm in ESXi 5)

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am seeking to create a NAS as a VM to stripe 6 x 1tb drives into a fast array. I then want to use iSCSI to make that array available to ESXi to put other VMs on.

I am told that Solaris Express 11 is a great platform to create a NAS on, but I am really struggling with it. Certainly it does not even seem to have the Webconsole described in various tutorials (http://ip:6789)

I tried to use the add on at napp-it.com but that script just times out. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
