Zpools Built on SVM Metadevices are Imported Using the Underlying /dev/dsk Devices Instead (Doc ID 1533510.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 11/06 U3 and later
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


Creating a zpool on a LUN or LUNs under SVM control can result in the zpool being imported using the underlying /dev/dsk device rather than the /dev/md/dsk device following a reboot or an export then subsequent import of the zpool.



1) A LUN is added to the system and used to create an SVM metadevice.
2) A zpool is created on the SVM metadevice.
3) The zpool is exported and then re-imported, or the system is rebooted.
