[OpenIndiana-discuss] cleaning out stale entries in zpool cache

Ummm, I don't see how this can be. The disks in question are in use, with a
valid 'tank' pool! Originally, when I did 'zpool import', it listed two
'tank' pools, one dead and one good - I specified the good ID and the pool
came back and is fine. There must be something else going on, no?

What is happening is that 'zpool import' is picking up the old zfs labels on
each of those disks. One easy way to fix this is to run fdisk on each of the
disks below and blow away the fdisk partition. You'll want to ensure that
they are not really being used by anything else.
Another option is to 'zpool create -f <some other pool> <disks below>' and
then 'zpool destroy <some other pool>'.
