Symptoms

Deduplication not turned on for any zfs file systems but zpool list shows DEDUP ratio greater than 1.0. Example:

1) None of the zfs file systems show dedup to be turned on:

# zfs get -rHp all rpool | grep dedup
rpool   dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT      dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT/<BE1> dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT/<BE1>/var     dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT/<BE2> dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT/<BE3> dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT/<BE2>/var     dedup   off     default
rpool/ROOT/<BE3>/var     dedup   off     default

...

 

2) However, zpool list shows that some deduplication is taking place:

# zpool list rpool
NAME  SIZE ALLOC FREE CAP DEDUP HEALTH ALTROOT
rpool 498G  307G 191G 61% 1.09x ONLINE -
