ZPOOL-ADD(8) System Manager's Manual ZPOOL-ADD(8)

NAME

zpool-add
Adds specified virtual devices to a ZFS storage pool

SYNOPSIS

zpool add [-fgLnP] [-o property=value] pool vdev...

DESCRIPTION

zpool add [-fgLnP] [-o property=value] pool vdev...
Adds the specified virtual devices to the given pool. The vdev specification is described in the Virtual Devices section of zpoolconcepts(8.) The behavior of the -f option, and the device checks performed are described in the zpool create subcommand.
Forces use of vdevs, even if they appear in use or specify a conflicting replication level. Not all devices can be overridden in this manner.
Display vdev, GUIDs instead of the normal device names. These GUIDs can be used in place of device names for the zpool detach/offline/remove/replace commands.
Display real paths for vdevs resolving all symbolic links. This can be used to look up the current block device name regardless of the /dev/disk/ path used to open it.
Displays the configuration that would be used without actually adding the vdevs. The actual pool creation can still fail due to insufficient privileges or device sharing.
Display real paths for vdevs instead of only the last component of the path. This can be used in conjunction with the -L flag.
property=value
Sets the given pool properties. See the zpoolprops(8) manual page for a list of valid properties that can be set. The only property supported at the moment is ashift.
