What OS and release?

Yes, just import the pool.

It depends on your OS and OBP (or BIOS).

The currently imported pool configurations are recorded in the 
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 
safest action is to not automatically import the pool. An error message is 
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))
