Thank you for your help
As I haven't received the response, I run the formart -e
It said it needs around 3 hours
Ready to format. Formatting cannot be interrupted
and takes 232 minutes (estimated). Continue?
Now, I have questions
1/ Why it needs long time (232 minutes) to format 10G?
2/ Can I stop it? Crtl C?
3/ For the normal procedure, I don't need to format the drive before using zpool add rpool newdevice
4/ What is the different betwen zpool attach zpool and zpool add zpool
Thank you again
