Proxmox 3.x ZFS did not mount after node reboot.

I recently started working at a location that uses Proxmox 3.x with kernel Linux ilsbnode2 2.6.32-48-pve #1 SMP Fri Nov 25 06:28:35 CET 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux. There are several openVZ containers. There is just one node. There is a ZFS filesystem. Since the system was built, the ZFS file system had grown to petabytes. Things I noticed. No multi node cluster. Single point of failure, local storage and no backups. I was going to start planning a redesign with a four node HA cluster after some study. The node rebooted unexpectingly on 12/19/2016. As a result, the ZFS file system failed to mount. The openVZ containers would not start because ZFS file systems failed to mount. The conclusion was to plan an upgrade to version 4 and preserve the ZFS data. I was able to ssh in remotely to the node and run the GUI and see the containers. Once I came back to the server room, I found that the pve services are not running and I cannot find the ZFS data.

You should put a question, to get an answer.

Anyway, the reason why you are not able to see them is because they are not mounted. They are not mounted because the folder structure is already there when zfs mount runs. Search for this, there were some solutions.

Is there a way to upgrade to version 4.0 without losing my ZFS data? I have looked but have yet to find any concrete answers.

Thank you for the reassurance on that.
