First I would like to say I enjoy the show and thank you both for continuing to do it.

Now to my question.  I have two FreeBSD servers running ZFS, with one using send/receive to replicate its content to the other.  The "backup" machine currently has more storage, so I would like to store more historic snapshots on it that on the primary storage.  When I try to create additional snapshots on the backup box, they get deleted when the next replication is run, as they are not found on the primary unit.  I am currently taking hourly snapshots that are kept for 48h, daily snapshots that are kept for a month, and monthly snapshots that are kept for 3 months.  I would like to keep the monthly snapshots for a year on the backup box.  Is it possible to configure things to make this work?

Thanks for the help,

Brian
