comment How to trace file access with dtrace on solaris
Are you tracing within a zone? That error comes up when there's an event at a memory address that the running process doesn't have permission to read. Usually because of reduced capabilities within a zone.

No, dtrace probes fire as events happen. You can't use dtrace for something in the past. To see which processes currently have a particular open, on illumos I use fuser <file> or lsof -f -i <file>.

comment Drawbacks of a single drive split into partitions and partitions joined into a ZFS raidz1, vs. single drive ZFS with data duplication?
Looks like you're aware of the drawbacks (and the right way to do it), but you're probably underestimating them. Why not just use a single vdev and restore from backup in the event of checksum errors?

That's not the same thing as sparse.

All the answers below are wrong except for @sudoer. The correct answer is to use dd conv=sparse.
