On an iSCSI or FC client, a filesystem residing on a ZFSSA LUN has become read-only.
The client system log reports write failures due to "Medium Errors".
Example - on a Linux client:
After running a filesystem check (fsck, e2fsck), the filesystem can be mounted read/write. But when resuming write operations, it goes back to read-only.
if you try and delete a lun when there is no space you get the following error:
error: An unanticipated system error occurred: cannot set property for
out of space
