We backup some folders to a remote host using rsync. The destination folder will use compression.

At first login to the remote server and allow ssh access as root (make sure, password authentication is disabled). We need this to fully backup permissions:

echo "PermitRootLogin yes" >> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
service sshd restart

Now create a backup volume:

zfs create -o compression=zstd-10 -o mountpoint=/backup zroot/backup
