On of my backup drives dedicated to a ZPOOL is faulting and showing up multiple 
ID. The
only working ID is id: 257822624560506537.

FreeBSD CURRENT with three ZFS disks and only 4GB of RAM is very "flaky" 
regarding this
issue: today, tow times the whole poolset vanishes after a reboot. Giving the 
box 8 GB
total and rebooting doens't show the problem, it gets more frequent when 
reducing the RAM
to 4GB (FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #2 r271684: Tue Sep 16 20:41:47 CEST 2014). This 
is a bit

Below the faulted harddrive. I guess the drive/pool below shown triggers 
somehow the loss
of all other pools (I have to import the other pools, which do not have any 
defects, but
they they drop out after a reboot and vanish).

Is there a way getting rid of the faulty IDs without destroying the pool?

Might be a long shot but check out the patches on:


And if that doesn't work:

The second has all the changes from the first with the addition
of some changes which dynamically size the max dirty data.

These changes are in discussion and its likely the additions
in the second patch aren't the right direction but they
have been reported to show good improvements under high
memory pressure for certain workloads, so would be interesting
to see if they help with your problem.

All that said you shouldnt end up with corrupt data no matter

Are there any other symptoms? Has memory been checked for
faults etc?
