Linux Mint 21.3
Linux version 6.5.0-26-generic

I've set up the zpool just fine, put some data on it and started a scrub. While this was in progress I rebooted the system. After that, zpool status shows me the scrub is paused. It won't resume automatically.

I've got another system with a similar setup, just on Mint 21.3 and the original zfs/kernel 5. There the scrub resumes right after reboot.

Comparing their setups didn't give me a clue, but I'm not that experienced to be able to compare 100%.

I can't seem to find the issue, any help greatly appreciated!

  • After I rebooted quite a few times, the scrub resumed. I can't figure out why.

  • I actually thought it's obvious that this isn't solved.

1 Answer 1

  • Don't run random scrubs
  • Don't reboot in the middle of one

If you are running a scrub and plan to reboot your system in the middle of that process, you can pause a scrub "zpool scrub -p poolname" or you can stop it entirely "zpool scrub -s poolname".

  • Thanks for the answer but that isn't fitting to this topic at all. I understand your tips well but in my case, a reboot may happen. The scrub must not stay paused after the system is up again. I would like to understand behavior before I aim to script something down to check on my own.
