Is this a Linux dualboot machine?
Linux has the tendency to overwrite the device section of a zpool when
importing. /dev/sdc looks like a linux name.
If so you may have killed that zpool by importing it from linux.
AFAIK there is currently no good solution to fix the device name entry.
Also be sure to stick to either slices or partitions p1 != s1 in your
One is the traditional Solaris Slice layout of the disk the other the
Partitions in DOS style. They do not mix at all.
Hope this helps
