comment Can the “harm your local or remote computer” warning be eliminated?
@FalconMomot Thank you; excellent suggestion, and although it didn't work (even in trusted sites and with all security settings bottomed-out,) it did get me looking in more places.

@Zoredache Already done; as noted, the clients aren't ours but we do have our roots installed into them (under Trusted Root Certification Authorities on the machine account) and they still do this.

comment What happens to missed writes after a zpool clear?
Thank you for the good explanation. I gather the quick resilver works when the drive returns to ONLINE automatically through OS mechanisms. However I had a case where a connection failed and required manual intervention to restore. The disk did not return to ONLINE; it stayed FAULTED, but a zfs clear brought it back ONLINE with no further complaints. The downtime was way over 10 minutes, although at a time of rather low load

As best as I can tell, zpool clear neither scrubs nor resilvers. It just continues as if everything is up-to-date even though a brief outage of the disk means some data might be out of date. You could manually perform a scrub afterwards, but, as you mention, this checks over all data, not just the out-of-date data.

Interesting demo, which doesn't surprise me. ZFS is indeed quite good at detecting and correcting soft errors, which is why I prefer it. I had figured however that after simply clearing a fault, redundancy is compromised on the mutated (new) data, until a scrub is done, which furthermore has to be invoked manually as you suggest.
