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

NAME
     zpool-initialize -- write to unallocated regions of ZFS storage pool

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

DESCRIPTION
     Begins initializing by writing to all unallocated regions on the speci-
     fied devices, or all eligible devices in the pool if no individual	de-
     vices are specified.  Only	leaf data or log devices may be	initialized.

     -c, --cancel
	     Cancel initializing on the	specified devices, or all eligible de-
	     vices if none are specified.  If one or more target devices are
	     invalid or	are not	currently being	initialized, the command will
	     fail and no cancellation will occur on any	device.

     -s, --suspend
	     Suspend initializing on the specified devices, or all eligible
	     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 return-
	     ing.
