Description Karl Lehenbauer 2011-10-11 17:50:07 UTC
Please add a note to the zfs manpage that even if zfs allow is used to allow a user to mount their own zfs filesystems, that FreeBSD will not allow it unless the sysctl vfs.usermount is set to 1.

The error message zfs returns...

cannot mount 'tank/backup/oscar/pgsql': Insufficient privileges

..provides no hint of what's wrong, either.

Fix: 

Update the zfs manpage.  Thanks!
