While copying data to my zfs pool, the system had a panic (presumably
because a drive went offline) and I had to shut it down hard.
After rebooting, all drives were present again but the pool remains
offline. # zpool status and # zpool history result in "no pools available",
# zpool import poolname says "cannot import poolname, no such pool
available", # zfs list" says "no datasets available".
With # sudo zpool import -f poolname it seems to acknowledge the pool,
saying "cannot import poolname: one or more devices is currently
Of course, diskutil as well as apple's harddisk utility lists all devices.
The most interesting output was with # sudo zpool import -f: It shows:
status: One or more devices contains corrupted data.
action: The pool cannot be imported due to damaged devices or data.

The drive went offline because of a loose cable connection. I had this some
times before in the past 2-3 years, but the pool was always still there.
So, apparently, it's gone, or do I miss something? Any tips on how to get
The pool sits in a G4 MDD running OSX 10.5.8. with maczfs 74.3. I created
the pool as described on the getting started page:
# diskutil partitiondisk /dev/disk(x) GPTFormat ZFS %noformat% 100%
# sudo zpool_ashift create poolname raidz disk1s2 disk2s2 disk3s2 disk4s2
disk5s2 disk6s2 disk7s2
(I used ashift value 11 as it was the fastest with my WD30EZRX drives.)
And yes, I do have a backup, but it's about 15 TB amount of data, so I'd
prefer not to have to copy it over. Also, I'd like to know if I can
actually bring this pool back.
Thanks for any advice,
