As a sanity check, I connected the drive to a Windows 7 installation.
I was able to partition, create an NTFS volume on it, eject and
I also tried creating the zpool on my Solaris 10 system, exporting
and trying to import the pool on my Solaris 11X system and again
I'm baffled why zpool import is unable to find the pool on the
drive, but the drive is definitely functional.
