Hi Joel

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, the new VM should be ready
for you to boot. If you can, please try to avoid LVM when partitioning
the disks, we need a different snapshot type on the ZFS partitions to
handle this configuration, and it's too easy to end up with a replicated
VM that turns out to be unbootable.
