Migrating from FreeNAS to Nexenta
I have been using FreeNAS for close to a year and decided to move to Nexenta. For some reason, I cannot import the zpool into Nexenta. I am running current releases of both products on AMD64 hardware. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks for your help!

My best guess? You formatted the devices in the zpool with gpt not geom. If so, you need to copy the data off and reformat.

AFAIK you cannot due to the way FreeNAS partitions the disks, versus how Nexenta/OpenIndiana/OpenSolaris would have.
This totally wrecks the idea behind the portability behind ZFS... but that's another subject.
