  5. The box is not rolled out yet, but We're running into some hardware issues. Before we start ripping things apart, I'm hoping to back up the machine's current state for restore later if needed.

  7. Is it just a matter of plugging in an external drive and exporting a ZFS snapshot to it? What would the restore process look like? Could we boot live off a FreeBSD install disk and then restore from there?
