Yes, I will have look at the Oracle documentation to understand the zfs filesystem. Thanks a lot for the answers so far!

No, you shouldn't have to reinstall Solaris to get it to understand ZFS filesystems. Solaris 10 understands both UFS and ZFS.

If underlying disks are untouched and visible to the operating system, a simple
zpool import

system will rescan the devices and import the pool if possible.
Also, it will output errors or numeric zpool identifiers to force the operations and such.
Be sure to read those.

Hope that helps

Had one additional HW failure and was not able to see any disks from the array using the "format" command. Had to replace the SAS controller, after which I was able to import the pools created, and can now access the files.

Thank you!

I'm actually now setting up a repository for the files from the old server. Moving the whole system we have to a standalone client based system, with critical work files stored in a data center version control. Anyways, need the files from the old server...which I now seem to have
