You have 12 x 2T disks in a raidz2, and you want to replace those disks with 4T each. Right? Start with a scrub. Wait for it to complete. Ensure you have no errors. sudo format -e < /dev/null > before.txt Then "zpool offline" one disk. Pull it out and stick a new 4T disk in its place. "devfsadm -Cv" to recognize the new disk. sudo format -e < /dev/null > after.txt diff before.txt after.txt You should see one device disappeared, and a new one was created. Now "zpool replace" to replace the old disk with the new disk. "zpool status" should show the new drive resilvering. Wait for the resilver to finish. Repeat 11 more times. Replace each disk, one at a time, with resilver in between. When you're all done, it might expand to the new size automatically, or you might need to play with the "autoexpand" property to make use of the new storage space. What percentage full is your pool? When you're done, please write back to tell us how much time this takes. I predict it will take a very long time, and I'm curious to know exactly how much. Before you start, I'm going to guess ... 80% full, and 7-10 days to resilver each drive. So the whole process will take you a few months to complete. (That's the disadvantage of a bunch of disks in a raidzN configuration.) _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
