Turn existing VMDK into ZFS VOL and use ISCSI to access it from different system

I have several servers running Solaris 10u9 with VirtualBox server installed. Each of those hosts can manage several guest. Currently I use VirtualBox multiattach image types to clone guests from master images. This doesn't require me to use clonehd on the master images, which is a very time consuming process.

SMB/CIFS sharing

Every once in a while I need to copy files between my two Macs, and usually I use the CLI for this, but sometimes I choose the Finder->Connect To Server to mount my home directory, so I can browse and drag-n-drop files between computers.

Today I "discovered" that the feature to share your home directory via SMB has to be enabled per user.
