Recover rpool data after raid controller failure

Hey guys,

Will it be possible to assist me, we recently lost one of our Proxmox servers raid controllers and we need to recover some data that are stored on the HDD.

Will this be possible, we went ahead and booted the server via a boot disk and we can see the rpool but when we import the pool the folders are empty.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Using ZFS on hardware is always a bad idea, why did you do it? (that is maybe the reason why you did not get any answer)

Now to your question:
How did you import the pool? Are the zfs datasets mounted?
