I moved a template that had linked CT's on it to a different node. It will not allow me to move it back. The strange thing is that I thought it would break the CT's that are linked but it hasn't.
 
Ah, so you did a migration through the CLI Shell with the "--with-local-disks" option on, which (drive)-mirrored the original vdevs to the target, but kept the local one for the linked template-childs.
Thus they kept working and the template couldn't be moved back..

Hmm, not sure if/how this could be really better, besides disallowing such cases..

The original issue was that I right clicked on the template in the web interface and selected migrate. To fix it I made snapshots, then cloned them from the gui. When I was done I deleted all the original linked CT's & then deleted the template.
