     zpool-add -- add vdevs to ZFS storage pool

     zpool add [-fgLnP]	[-o property=value] pool vdeva|

     Adds the specified	virtual	devices	to the given pool.  The	vdev specifi-
     cation is described in the	Virtual	Devices	section	of zpoolconcepts(7).
     The behavior of the -f option, and	the device checks performed are	de-
     scribed in	the zpool create subcommand.

     -f	     Forces use	of vdevs, even if they appear in use or	specify	a con-
	     flicting replication level.  Not all devices can be overridden in
	     this manner.

     -g	     Display vdev, GUIDs instead of the	normal device names.  These
	     GUIDs can be used in place	of device names	for the	zpool de-
	     tach/offline/remove/replace commands.

     -L	     Display real paths	for vdevs resolving all	symbolic links.	 This
	     can be used to look up the	current	block device name regardless
	     of	the /dev/disk path used	to open	it.

     -n	     Displays the configuration	that would be used without actually
	     adding the	vdevs.	The actual pool	creation can still fail	due to
	     insufficient privileges or	device sharing.

     -P	     Display real paths	for vdevs instead of only the last component
	     of	the path.  This	can be used in conjunction with	the -L flag.

     -o	property=value
	     Sets the given pool properties.  See the zpoolprops(7) manual
	     page for a	list of	valid properties that can be set.  The only
	     property supported	at the moment is ashift.
