IIRC when working with xen I had to boot with live cd, import the pool, then poweroff (without exporting the pool). Then it can boot.

On Ubuntu + zfsonlinux + root/boot on zfs, the boot script helper is "smart" enough to try all available device nodes, so it wouldn't matter if the dev path/id/name changed. But ONLY if there's no zpool.cache in the initramfs. Not sure how easy it would be to port that functionality to solaris. -- Fajar _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
