Further to previous posts on upgrading my two home servers, I seem to have hit an intractable problem on the main server and now need to restore it from the backup server. I use ZnapZend to send `zones` and all descendents to the other server so I have a good replica of the main server on the backup.
I’ve cloned the backup server’s `zones` hierarchy on to an eSATA disk and connected it to the main server as `zznew`; which now has a virgin `zones` pool after a reinstall of SmartOS. I’m guessing there needs to be some combination of -e or -f in the `zfs send -R zznew/backup/deneb/zones | zfs recv` command and that this needs to be run with the server in recovery mode and with both pools on alternate mountpoints with no datasets mounted. Any clues: the `zfs` manual is a bit light on the -e and -f options to the `recv` sub-command. Gareth
