its fairly easy, just export/import the pool. One thing to make sure is that
all you machines are capable of handling zfs. Also make sure they are all on
the same zfs baseline. If you update one box and it goes upto zfs v22 say,
and you do a zpool upgrade. Your other machines wont be able to access the
zpool until they are upgraded
