        zfs unmount <zpool>
        zfs set mountpoint=legacy <zpool>
The workaround I use is to leave the filesystems mounted via ZFS, but I
create dummy entries in /etc/vfstab using a script from cron that runs
prior the the scheduled backup.
All it does is for each ZFS filesystem, create a /etc/vfstab entry set
to not mount at boot. With the client set to saveset ALL it happily
picks up all the ZFS filesystems. This has worked fine since I set it up.
This is also using a 7.3.2 client to a 7.2.2 server. EMC have confirmed
this as supported, provided the client is not a storage node.


I haven't tested the 'set mountpoint=legacy' myself, but it sounds reasonable.
