The system is mainly serving files via SMB.
After rebooting and uploading the old configuration, I had to create mountpoints (/mnt/...) so the datasets could be mounted.
After another reboot the datasets are there and writable through SMB but ***ALL CONTENT IS GONE***
The storage pool (moonpool) is of "unknown" health in the console.
I cannot create a new pool because the necessary vdevs are still used by the old pool
I cannot destroy the old pool because it does not exist
Neither can I create or delete a dataset, for the same reason.
Code: Select all
#zfs destroy -f 'moonpool/data' cannot open 'moonpool/data': dataset does not exist #zpool destroy 'moonpool' cannot open 'moonpool': no such pool #zfs list NAME USED AVAIL REFER MOUNTPOINT zroot 437M 99.4G 88K /zroot zroot/ROOT 436M 99.4G 88K none zroot/ROOT/default-install 435M 99.4G 435M / zroot/tmp 120K 99.4G 120K /tmp zroot/var 536K 99.4G 536K /var
update: I reverted to the USB installation and was very happy to see that my data is back.
Still, how do I go about upgrading the right way?
