Is there any ETA of when vSAN will recognise ZFS? Its mentioned in the Webinar as coming in the next update, but there have been 2 releases since and its still not in the GUI or release notes.

I would be happy if there is even a way to add it via commands to avoid formatting XFS over ZFS.

Greetings, ZFS support is already there. You can just follow the procedure from the webinar to add a ZFS device.

Guides should be prepared in a couple of weeks, I believe. Stay tuned!

I am able to create a ZFS pool via terminal, however it needs to be formatted XFS by the GUI to be recognized. The webinar said GUI support recognizing the underlying pool without reformatting XFS was coming. Is that still slated for an upcoming release or has that been shelved for now?

For this time being it needs to be formated as XFS. GUI support is coming but I do not have any ETA yet.
