Deployment SNV81 DomU to ZFS filesystem at SNV81 Dom0 on ASUS P5K Premium/WIFI

SNV81 Dom0 was installed on second partition of first SATA drive.
ZFS filesystem would be created on second SATA Drive .
Detection second drive by SNV81:-

Fourth partition on second drive of type "Other"
has been created with fdisk

# zpool create pool c1t5d0p4
# zfs create -V 23G pool/snv81-dsk

Now proceed with virt-install:-

# virt-install -n Solaris81ZFS --paravirt -r 1024 \
--nographics -f /dev/zvol/dsk/pool/snv81-dsk \
-l /export/home/isos/snv81.iso

Virt-install runs just fine :-

When SNV81 DomU reboots the first time.
Add to /etc/system line :-

set xnf:xnf_cksum_offload = 0

Configure Sun Xvnc and reboot DomU one more time.
Snapshots bellow demonstrate ssh connection
from DomU to Dom0 and running:-
# xm list -l Solaris81ZFS
