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

NAME
     zpool-initialize -- Write to all unallocated regions of eligible devices
     in	a ZFS storage pool

SYNOPSIS
     zpool initialize [-c | -s]	[-w] pool [device...]

DESCRIPTION
     zpool initialize [-c | -s]	[-w] pool [device...]
	     Begins initializing by writing to all unallocated regions on the
	     specified devices,	or all eligible	devices	in the pool if no in-
	     dividual devices are specified.  Only leaf	data or	log devices
	     may be initialized.

	     -c, --cancel
		     Cancel initializing on the	specified devices, or all eli-
		     gible devices if none are specified.  If one or more tar-
		     get devices are invalid or	are not	currently being	ini-
		     tialized, the command will	fail and no cancellation will
		     occur on any device.

	     -s	--suspend
		     Suspend initializing on the specified devices, or all el-
		     igible devices if none are	specified.  If one or more
		     target devices are	invalid	or are not currently being
		     initialized, the command will fail	and no suspension will
		     occur on any device.  Initializing	can then be resumed by
		     running zpool initialize with no flags on the relevant
		     target devices.

	     -w, --wait
		     Wait until	the devices have finished initializing before
		     returning.
