My first thought is that your fd, maybe, should not be more current than
the dir or sd. Having an older fd worked for me. The second...

thing is
there are no 'maximum' commands. Here are mine in the "Pool" section:
Maximum Volume Bytes = 4GB
Maximum Volumes = 115

Multiply 4 x 115 = 460 GB - bad things happen if the disk gets full

The third thought is that you really should run a much simpler
setup(conf files) till all issues are hashed out. You are doing things
the hard way.
