comment ZFS: Trying to remove top-level drive from Zpool
@chronic I wonder what documentation you read. Increasing zpool size is just a matter of adding a disk or even a new stripe/mirror/raidz to it. The only trick in some cases is that you need to perform a zpool set autoexpand=on after adding the disks. Same goes to extend space on a single device zpool, resize underlying this, autoexpand=on and then off and new space is available.

that's manual work, but on the destination you can do zfs list -t snapshot and check how much space is use.

comment zfs replication temporary file
I add a similar situation recently, but you can't see anything besides the destination increasing. In my case was send and receive . But even using -v option, only at the end of the operation it tells you how long it took and the amount of data.

comment How can I do NFSv4 UID mapping across systems with UID mismatches?
From find man: -group gname True if the file belongs to the group gname. If gname is numeric and does not appear in the group(4) database, it is taken as a group ID.

comment Virtualbox 4.2.18 Ubuntu guest — unable to access shared folder
that might be a know bug. try to use the cli and copy the file using the full path. ex: cp /sf_mount/file /home/my_user. If it works it is because of a bug with kernel 3.10 and up if I remember correctly.
