cannot mount 'rpool/u01' on '/u01': mountpoint or dataset is busy

When you try to use the below command :

zfs create -o mountpoint=/u01 rpool/u01

Error :

cannot mount 'rpool/u01' on '/u01': mountpoint or dataset is busy

The Solution :

  • First destroy rpool/u01
  • zfs create rpool/u01
  • zfs set mountpoint=/u01 rpool/u01
  • mkdir /u01
  • zfs mount /u01


Thank you
