Periodic Snapshots fail always
Basic RAID10 setup with nothing unusual. As of the past 2 updates (I think), all periodic snapshots fail. The output from /var/log/messages makes it look as if the snapshot command is being malformed (perhaps caused by the space character in my path to one set, "Production Folders" is the name of one folder).
Attached is a copy of the failure message. Checking Windows "Previous Versions" shows no available snapshots, as well, so they really are failing.

Issued the automatic command with the addition of quotation marks and the snapshot succeeds:
E.g., FreeNAS issues:
/sbin/zfs snapshot -r tank/Production Folders@auto-20150301.1557-2m
and the command fails. I manually issued this:
/sbin/zfs snapshot -r "tank/Production Folders@auto-20150301.1557-2m"
and it succeeds. Also, a traditional escape like:
/sbin/zfs snapshot -r tank/Production\ Folders@auto-20150301.1557-2m
also works correctly.
Still having problems with folders without spaces automatically creating snapshots. They do not succeed, but do not provide output in /var/log/messages.
