comment What happens if I force ZFS to detach a hot spare with no valid replicas?
Also @longneck, once the damaged files are deleted do I need to issue a "zpool clear" or will the resilver/scrub clear the errors once the files are gone?

Ah yes thank-you @longneck for the pointer back, I forgot that it was necessary to replace/remove the corrupt files in order for resilver to complete.

Thanks @ewwhite, also thanks for the lead on the ZFS google group, I'll check that out. I'm also going to setup a test pool to do an experiment to simulate the removal and see what happens.

Also ewwhite, just so I'm clear are you saying you think that force removing one of the spares will result in a faulted pool, or did you mean "done" in a more general sense?

At the time the system was built there was no native ZFS implementation for Linux.

Second test: create a symbolic link to the new device using the old device name works to get the pool back to ONLINE, need to validate with some data transfers.

First test result: straight-up "replace <pool> <old disk> <new disk>" won't work because it can't open the unavailable pool.

Yes RAID was used, but this failure occurred before a previous failure could be recovered from.

Hey guys, thanks again for all this awesome info. The good news is that I have a second device now to use while I reconfigure this one. The bad news is that recently another disk has failed, so the pool is UNAVAL :( I'm planning to have the recently-failed disk "recovered" to a new hard drive, but when the new drive is ready, I'm not sure the best way to bring it back into the pool. I have a new thread posted here: serverfault.com/questions/543823/… if you have any recommendations :)

this one is pretty full (85%). I have a second system with a similar capacity that is much less full, so if there is some "magic number" of allocation that I can get it down to that will allow me to reconfigure the drives I might be able to do that.
