Exports the given ZFS storage pools from the system
- Exports the given pools from the system. All devices are marked as
exported, but are still considered in use by other subsystems. The devices
can be moved between systems (even those of different endianness) and
imported as long as a sufficient number of devices are present.
Before exporting the pool, all datasets within the pool are
unmounted. A pool can not be exported if it has a shared spare that is
currently being used.
For pools to be portable, you must give the
zpool command whole disks, not just partitions,
so that ZFS can label the disks with portable EFI labels. Otherwise,
disk drivers on platforms of different endianness will not recognize the
- Exports all pools imported on the system.
- Forcefully unmount all datasets, using the
This option is not supported on Linux.
This command will forcefully export the pool even if it
has a shared spare that is currently being used. This may lead to
potential data corruption.
