ZPOOL-EXPORT(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual	       ZPOOL-EXPORT(8)

NAME
     zpool-export -- export ZFS	storage	pools

SYNOPSIS
     zpool export [-f] -a|poola|

DESCRIPTION
     Exports the given pools from the system.  All devices are marked as ex-
     ported, but are still considered in use by	other subsystems.  The devices
     can be moved between systems (even	those of different endianness) and im-
     ported as long as a sufficient number of devices are present.

     Before exporting the pool,	all datasets within the	pool are unmounted.  A
     pool can not be exported if it has	a shared spare that is currently being
     used.

     For pools to be portable, you must	give the zpool command whole disks,
     not just partitions, so that ZFS can label	the disks with portable	EFI
     labels.  Otherwise, disk drivers on platforms of different	endianness
     will not recognize	the disks.

     -a	     Exports all pools imported	on the system.

     -f	     Forcefully	unmount	all datasets, and allow	export of pools	with
	     active shared spares.

	     This command will forcefully export the pool even if it has a
	     shared spare that is currently being used.	 This may lead to po-
	     tential data corruption.
