TRYING to use zfs send/recv between a 10-STABLE and an 11-CURRENT system, and receive the non-descript
"invalid backup stream". /home/ler $ sudo bin/
receiving full stream of zroot@2014-07-24 into zroot/backups/TBH@2014-07-24
received 41.7KB stream in 300 seconds (142B/sec)
receiving full stream of zroot/usr@2014-07-24 into zroot/backups/TBH/usr@2014-07-24
received 41.7KB stream in 1 seconds (41.7KB/sec)
receiving full stream of zroot/usr/local@2014-07-24 into zroot/backups/TBH/usr/local@2014-07-24
received 2.81GB stream in 1116 seconds (2.58MB/sec)
receiving full stream of zroot/usr/src@2014-07-24 into zroot/backups/TBH/usr/src@2014-07-24
cannot receive new filesystem stream: invalid backup stream /home/ler $ cat bin/
DATE=`date "+%Y-%m-%d"`
#DATE2=`date -v "-1d" "+%Y-%m-%d"`
# snap the source
ssh zfs snapshot -r zroot@${DATE}
# zfs copy the source to here.
ssh "zfs send  -R -D  zroot@${DATE} | \
     ssh \"zfs recv -F -u -v -d zroot/backups/TBH\""
# make sure we NEVER allow the backup stuff to automount.
/sbin/zfs list -H -t filesystem -r zroot/backups/TBH| \
    awk '{printf "/sbin/zfs set canmount=noauto %s\n",$1}' | sh /home/ler $

This has been happening for YEARS and I can't seem to interest anyone in fixing it.

How can we get to the bottom of this? /home/ler $ uname -a
