Thank you for this suggestion. I've created symlinks from the
/dev/dsk directory pointing to the dd image, but zpool import says the
same thing. However, look at the error message below. zpool can
see the hostname of the last system to use the pool, but the date
looks like the epoch (Dec 31 1969). Is this meaningful?
# ln -s /jbod1-diskbackup/restore/deep_Lun0.dd
# ln -s /jbod1-diskbackup/restore/deep_san01_lun.dd
# zpool import -d .
status: The pool was last accessed by another system.
action: The pool cannot be imported due to damaged devices or data.
/jbod1-diskbackup/restore/deep_san01_lun.dd UNAVAIL cannot open
/jbod1-diskbackup/restore/deep_Lun0.dd UNAVAIL cannot open
# zpool import -d . -F deep
cannot import 'deep': pool may be in use from other system, it was
last accessed by vali.REDACTED (hostid: 0x2a8c28ca) on Wed Dec 31
use '-f' to import anyway
# zpool import -d . -F -f deep
cannot import 'deep': one or more devices is currently unavailable
