zfs configs

Good afternoon. I'm a complete novice when it comes to zfs filesystems, but have inherited a server built on them. I need to increase the sizee of the /db03 filesystem in the following set up (extract):


Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
orapool/db01            20G   5.3G    15G    27%    /db01
orapool/db02            40G    11G    29G    29%    /db02
orapool/db03            20G    19G   617M    97%    /db03
rpool/export           134G    23K   107G     1%    /export
rpool/export/home      134G   7.0G   107G     7%    /export/home
rpool/oracle            20G   6.1G    14G    31%    /oracle
orapool                268G    21G   211G     9%    /orapool
rpool                  134G    97K   107G     1%    /rpool

Can anyone give me some pointers as to where I could 'steal' some space for /db03 from given the above? I've a feeling it's possibly /orapool, but would appreciate some expert input to confirm this and if it is possible, guidance on 'how'.

This is not (yet) a production box, so it doesn't really matter if we do a little experimentation (within reason anyway!).

RE: zfs configs

Turns out this is simple enough:

zfs set quota=30G orapool/db03

always assuming one has enough space in /orapool of course!
