You'd think this would have been asked but I can't seem to find it so…
Let's say I have a ZFS setup in this enclosure (8 bay USB3 JBOD):
Now, I'm going to be running it on my Mac direct attached but I'd like to be able to access the files when I boot into Windows as well. With HFS+ volumes Apple was kind enough to provide a means for doing this. However, I can't find one for ZFS.
The only solution I've come across is using Open Solaris in a Virtual Machine to mount the drives. However, I've also heard more than a few nightmares about doing this and it leading to massive failures… Yeah, kind of the exact opposite of what I want.
So, essentially, what is the current best means of accessing a ZFS volume attached to Windows? I'd be happy with read-only access if necessary.
Oh, intended OS is Windows 7.
