  • Can't get zpool status after update (v6.3-4)
    reddit.com/r/Proxmox | 2021-02-24
    Just to clarify, you got that message because the update to 6.3-4 also included a major update to ZFS (from ZFS On Linux 0.8.5 to OpenZFS 2.0.3). That means a number of new features, and your pools need to be upgraded to support those features. After upgrading, your pools won't work on systems with older ZFS versions, so that's something to be aware of. If you don't need the new features, you can postpone upgrading your pools; as the message you got says, the pools will still be usable.

  • Upgrading zpool to v2?
    reddit.com/r/zfs | 2021-02-20
    I'm running 2.0.1 on NixOS and hitting this bug, which for me is causing periodic corrupted snapshots which is pretty unsettling: https://github.com/openzfs/zfs/issues/10697
    reddit.com/r/zfs | 2021-02-20
    Sorry for adding to the confusion, I posted the wrong issue. This is the issue I'm experiencing: https://github.com/openzfs/zfs/issues/11443 I haven't personally experienced issue #10697. The way #11443 manifests for me is a corrupted snapshot every week or two, on a lightly-loaded desktop system using snapshots and "zfs send" for backups.

    Is this feature related to the proposed RAID-Z expansion?

    It's mentioned there in the comments. Maybe it will help?

    I'm running OpenZFS 2.0.1 on NixOS. I'm experiencing this issue: https://github.com/openzfs/zfs/issues/10697 Which manifests as corrupted snapshots about once every week or two on my lightly-loaded desktop machine. Unfortunately I upgraded my pool so it's tough to go back right now. I regret the upgrade so far.
