How to destroy a pool whose vdevs have gone away

(Doc ID 1554925.1)

Last updated on APRIL 17, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 11/06 U3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When the underlying vdev of a zpool becomes inaccessible, any operation will (by default) block, including the destruction of the pool, as ZFS is expecting that the device will again become available.


 We wish to destroy a pool that no longer has any accessible vdevs.
