I love what ZFS brings to the table. However, I don’t often have to interact with it, so when I do, I forget what needs to be done. The documentation works pretty well for me, but here are some notes that speeds things up (for me), as I hopefully don’t have to “start over” every time trying to find where to start digging.
Not all zpools appear
Supported solution seems to be
apt install mountall. If that still doesn’t work, here are some ideas:
zpool status zpool list zpool import # Lists pools available to import. zpool import -a # imports and mounts the pool zfs mount -a # if the above failed zpool status zpool history
zpool scrub- The scrub examines all data in the specified pools to verify that it checksums correctly.
zfs get all- shows all properties for all filesystems (checksum, atime, mountpoint …)
zfs set mountpoint=/dump dump- does that
zdb- low level tool
zpool labelclear <device>- Removes ZFS label information from the specified device.
