Description

With ZFS storage appliances or user scripts you need to process special informations that are only relevant by this single application or appliance software (like persistent share acl or iSCSI GUID of a zvol).

Currently there is no way to include such user dependent informations as a ZFS property. A user settable ZFS property field would be extremely helpful.

Have you looked at zfs user properties (http://illumos.org/man/1m/zfs#user-properties )?

It looks like user properties fit the bill!
