Disk replacement ZFS-Pool


Active Member

I have two damaged SSDs. On those SSDs is a ZFS-Pool running (RAID 1). I want to replace both SSDs. What would be the easiest way? To replace one disk?


Or to replace both disks at the same time? The zfs is actually empty.. Could also be a quick way to destroy the zfs-pool and create it again. But therefor I must delete the zfs pool out of all hosts.

Best regards
Is this a single host? Or a cluster where each node has a zpool with the same name?

If it's empty I guess no guest has a disk-image/mountpoint on the zpool (otherwise you would need to recreate the zvols/datasets respectively)?
If that's the case and you really don't need the data on the zpool - it's probably the quickest to destroy and recreate the pool

I hope this helps!
