I'm on OI 148. I didn't do anything but the standard

# zpool offline dpool c7t2d0
# cfgadm -a | grep c7t2d0
# cfgadm -c unconfigure sata1/2
(replace drive)
# cfgadm -c configure sata1/2
# zpool replace dpool c7t2d0 c7t2d0

This is a system with three AOC-SAT2-MV8 controllers - I replaced one disk per raidz2 vdev and let that resilver (that is, resilvering one drive in each of the three VDEVs at a time).

Vennlige hilsener / Best regards
