The currently imported pool configurations are recorded in the /etc/zfs/zpool.cache file for Solaris-like OSes. At boot time, the system will try to import the pools in the cache. If the cache contents no longer match reality for non-root pools, then the safest action is to not automatically import the pool. An error message is displayed and should point to a website that tells you how to correct this (NB, depending on the OS, that URL may or may not exist at Oracle (nee Sun)) -- richard -- ZFS Performance and Training richard.ell...@richardelling.com +1-760-896-4422
