I had a single-disk zpool (export) and was given two new disks for expanded
storage. All three disks are identically sized, no slices/partitions. My goal
is to create a raidz1 configuration of the three disks, containing the data in
the original zpool.
However, I got off on the wrong foot by doing a "zpool add" of the first disk.
Apparently this has simply increased my storage without creating a raidz config.
Unfortunately, there appears to be no simple way to just remove that disk now
and do a proper raidz create of the other two. Nor am I clear on how
import/export works and whether that's a good way to copy content from one
zpool to another on a single host.
Can somebody guide me? What's the easiest way out of this mess, so that I can
move from what is now a simple two-disk zpool (less than 50% full) to a
three-disk raidz configuration, starting with one unused disk? In the end I
want the three-disk raidz to have the same name (and mount point) as the
original zpool. There must be an easy way to do this.
Thanks for any assistance.
P.S. I would appreciate being kept on the CC list for this thread to avoid
digest mailing delays.
