Hi all.
Can't seem to figure out how to clear this error. I've tried what it suggested but it never clears.
still on: 11.1.0.4 - Atomics (revision 5579)
Configuration information about devices is different from physical devices. Please remove those devices and re-add them or run import disks with clear configuration option enabled.
I'm looking to expand my ZFS raidz2 and with larger drives 6 X 6 Tb drives, Should I be concerned about this error?

thanks

Synchronizing the WebGUI when using ZFS is a two-step task:
a) Goto Disks > Management > HDD Management, check box "Clear configuration information before importing disks." and click import in the Import Disks section. (Importing software RAID disks is not necessary).
b) Goto Disks > ZFS > Configuration > Synchronize. Run synchronize with all 3 checkboxes checked.
