I made no further recovery attempts, the pool imported cleanly after rebooting, or so i thought  as a zpool status showed no errors and i could read data from the drive again.

I did think it was strange that the zpool had magically recovered its self: root@n36l:~# zpool status data2 pool: data2 state: DEGRADED status: One or more devices has experienced an unrecoverable error. An attempt was made to correct the error. Applications are unaffected. action: Determine if the device needs to be replaced, and clear the errors using 'zpool clear' or replace the device with 'zpool replace'. see: http://www.sun.com/msg/ZFS-8000-9P scan: scrub repaired 0 in 0h26m with 0 errors on Thu Jul 12 15:07:47 2012 config: NAME STATE READ WRITE CKSUM data2 DEGRADED 0 0 0 c2t0d0s0 DEGRADED 0 0 0 too many errors errors: No known data errors At least it is letting me access data for now, i guess the only fix is to migrate data off and then "rebuild" the disk. -- Ritchie > You'll be able to produce a list of all the partially-corrupted files. > Most > likely, you'll just want to rm those files, and then you'll know you have > good files, whatever is still left. > >
