I have two zfs pools: data1 and data2 each with two drives in the pool.
I want to write to data1, offline it, continue writing to data2 pull both disks out of data1 replace them with two new disks.
Then I want to do the inverse for the other pool... that is write to one, offline and replace the disks out of the other, back and forth.
In IRIX I can "scsicontol -i some-parameters stop" and then walk over an pull the drive out of the JBOD.
I can in OpenIndiana:
Code: Select all
zpool offline data1 c1t2d0
But as soon as I attempt to offline the 2nd disk in the pool it says it can't because obviously there is nothing left in the mirror.
I want to pull both drives out without any pool destroy commands or the like.
I want to sneaker net the drives across the city by a non technical person.
Also I can not stop the SATA disks.
cfgadm only picks up the entire raid controller (which we are using as a JBODs).
cfgadm -c unconfigure c1t2d0 comes back with some thing to the effect of not knowing what the device is...
I hope this makes sense.
