ZFS pool export question

I want to have a disk that I can transfer files between ZFS systems. I created a pool with one disk:

zpool create xfer da9

Ok, everything seems to be ok. This is a drive that had a GPT label and 1 freebsd-zfs partition labelled with the drives serial number.

I want to remove the drive;

zfs umount /xfer
zpool export xfer

Now I get error messages about a damaged and possible unrecoveracle GPT label.

Am I going about this in the right way? I can’t simpply remove the drive after unmounting it, then ZFS prints errors about a failed VDEV.

Help obi-wan…
