I attached new HDD into my server day ago and want to replace old HDD in ZPool with new one. There was some errors before and there was no much space to store my files.

I've cleaned my spool with zpool scrub server and after no checking for OK status started replacing with command

  zpool replace server gptid/b9fe718b-e8eb-11df-a819-00a04c3900c9  gptid/e41cdac9-1406-11e3-9694-1c6f654c7cc1

spool replace finished, but founded some mystic errors on filesystem (no filename, but inode). So I stuck with following status:

pool: server
state: ONLINE
scan: scrub canceled on Tue Sep  3 21:10:04 2013

    NAME                                            STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
    server                                          ONLINE       0     0     0
      replacing-0                                   ONLINE       0     0     0
        gptid/b9fe718b-e8eb-11df-a819-00a04c3900c9  ONLINE       0     0     0
        gptid/e41cdac9-1406-11e3-9694-1c6f654c7cc1  ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors

Now I can't detach new or old HDD. What should I do to remove any HDD from this pool?
