Indeed, right now zpool status -v is reporting only 1 unrecoverable error.
However, other LUNs aren't recognized by VMWare as VMFS volumes anymore.
The server does have ECC memory, and an LSI SAS controller (no RAID, ZFS
handles everything). We've had this in production for about 4 months
without issue until yesterday. I agree about mirror-8; I'm concerned it may
also have problems. I did online one drive in mirror-3. The other drive,
At this point I want to get the two replacement drives I have installed,
which goes back to one of my questions: what's the best method for
replacement with hot spare already in place? I've seen other articles/posts
about simply using zpool detach pool_name failed_device, but I want to make
sure I get that part right and don't cause further problems. Once I know
those are in place, I'm going to run a full scrub in the evening.
