Out of curiosity (because I had this problem a few weeks back), how does
one move a bootable pool into another physical server in order to be
able to see the pool as a 'data' set without exporting/importing, and
then moving the pool back to the hardware that it normally boots from?
Perhaps I was lucky when copying the cache back onto itself worked...
