ZFS disks sometimes not appearing in Mojave

Postby Ikukuru » Sat Mar 30, 2019 12:08 am

I have a Z370N motherboard with 4 SATA ports. I have a PCI-E card with 2 SATA ports. They are all populated with 8TB disks in a mirrored array.

Boot drive is NVMe and I am using the latest Clover and Mojave and ZFS 1.8.1 installer.

Upon booting after a CMOS reset/BIOS update, the disks appear in MacOS Mojave and my ZFS pool works well. Upon subsequent reboots, the 4 ports on the motherboard do not register the ZFS disks. Rarely, the disks randomly appear after a reboot.

Upon testing with APFS SATA disks, there is no such problem.

Has anyone experienced this? Any thoughts on a fix?

Crucial question: are you using encryption? And if so, is it native ZFS encryption, or FileVault/CoreStorage encryption?

This seems to have been sorted with the addition of zfs_x64.efi from https://efi.akeo.ie/downloads/efifs-latest/x64/
