Pools gone after reboot

Postby AnWa » Fri Aug 23, 2019 5:16 am

Hi!

After a forced reboot, pool can no longer find the pools. The discs themselves show up in DiscTools, but running "sudo pool list" just returns "no pools available".

I am running OpenZFS 1.9.2.

Please advice.

You should run "sudo pool import" and see if they are listed, the "zpool list" command only shows imported pools.

You can additionally try "sudo zpool import -d /dev/" to by-pass InvariantDisks.

If you see pools, you can issue "sudo zpool import $nameofpool" to import it, in case there is something wrong with the auto-import script.

Big thanks! That did the trick.

Maybe this is something for the FAQ?

What does this mean:

...to "bypass invariant disks" ? What is an "invariant disk" and why would you want to bypass it?
