comment ZFS on Linux/Ubuntu: Help importing a zpool after Ubuntu upgrade from 13.04 to 13.10, device IDs have changed
And I will for sure no longer use partitions for anything related to ZFS! Lesson learned!

I am now reviewing everything, but it seems not necessary, with the linking trick, zpool was able to finally find the right device during import process, so it was imported with the correct devices. In my specific case the linking trick helped zpool find and set the right devices.

Cooooooool, it worked. It first changed the devices again to something else, like this: mirror-1 UNAVAIL insufficient replicas wwn-0x50025385503e8531 UNAVAIL corrupted data wwn-0x50025385503e8535 UNAVAIL but then I applied the linking trick to these new names... and it finally worked!

I do not see a way to get the version now that the pool is only exported. Any command for this? But it should be version 5000, latest from zfsonlinux.

I wish there was a way to apply similar commands to exported pools.

Once I exported the pool, it was automatically removed from the system, so it is no longer available to the system, actually this is why I need help. I think this is the normal behaviour. I am sorry again if it is not, in this case I also forgot to mention it. And so all these commands do not apply.

Yes, sorry I did not mention, but I passed already all these alternatives, with and without all combinations of -m, -f, -d. Yes, I also think that it is a problem with mirror of ZIL partitions. The parameter -m should help according to the man page, but it is not helping.

This is what I tried to do and it is not working. The import fails with the message reported.
