Hi Artem, everyone,
Thanks for your quick response. Unfortunately I already did try this
Applying -d /dev/gpt only limits the pool to the bare three remaining disks
pool completely unusable (no mfid devices). Maybe those labels are removed
they are being tried to be imported/accessed?
What I don't understand is what exactly makes those gpt labels disappear
when the pool
is imported and otherwise are just fine?!
Something to do with OpenSolaris ? On top of it all gpart show -l keeps
the labels right even while the pool is imported.
Any other clues would be appreciated.
