Oracle effectively forked ZFS with the release of Solaris 11 by not open-sourcing any of the ZFS code.
Solaris 11 includes ZFSv31 or higher. The last open-source release of ZFS was ZFSv28. Thus, if you create a pool on Solaris 11+ that you want to import on other systems, you have to manually tell it to create a ZFSv28 pool, and not use the defaults.
