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

Code:
zpool import

should be all the magic required.

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
Regards
Peasant.

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!

Phew! Well done! Close run thing that.

I'm not trying to insult your intelligence but it's time to urgently backup the whole thing.

You're right. This has been a "very low probability, very high impact" risk, that just has not been mitigated. This was maybe too close of a call.

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 Linux
