I want to format a subvolume with a filesystem other than ZFS, since a program I use needs certain File System features ZFS doesn't have (Portal 2 on macOS has File System constraints). APFS has a feature that allows a subvolume to be formatted differently than the main container, so I wonder if ZFS supports this?


Yes. An example illustrates creating an ext3 subvolume underneath ZFS.

#mkfs -t ext3 -L lun4 /dev/zvol/zpool12_3/lun4
