Ok I was able to change the zoned property and mount to another

Now I can get back to working on getting the disk to boot again.

Thanks for all the help.

No problem, just remember - backups are a wonderful thing!

Oh yes I know... Bacula is awesome! I have complete backups thats not the issue. I rebuilt the system with new disks and restored from backups last week.

I am trying to figure out what the reason is for having a mirrored rpool. In this case the first disk failed and the second disk wont complete booting up for some reason. The disk is fine.

If I import the rpool from the second disk to another system most of the zfs file systems are not available so the data can't be retrieved. If I boot with install media and import the pool the zone datasets are still not available and I have the same issue with exporting/importing the zones.

Too bad there isn't a tool somewhere that's designed to recover an rpool thats healthy but for some reason won't boot.

Anyways it was just an exercise on trying to recover a down system.
