ZFS is showing that the root pool is almost full but du(1) is unable to find where all of the space is being used.
$ zfs list NAME USED AVAIL REFER MOUNTPOINT rpool 268G 5.65G 97K /rpool rpool/ROOT 227G 5.65G 21K legacy rpool/ROOT/s10s_u9wos_14a 227G 5.65G 227G / rpool/dump 2.00G 5.65G 2.00G - rpool/export 4.22G 5.65G 4.22G /export rpool/export/home 24.5K 5.65G 24.5K /export/home rpool/swap 2.06G 5.69G 2.02G - rpool/testswap 33.0G 6.30G 32.3G -
So the space is being taken up under the filesystem currently mounted as root, but running a du -shd /.[a-zA-Z]* /* does not find the space.
