I'm working on creating a ZFS zpool and I'm getting the following error:
# zpool create main_zfs raidz2 /dev/sdc /dev/sdd /dev/sde /dev/sdf /dev/sdg /dev/sdh /dev/sdi /dev/sdj /dev/sdk /dev/sdl /dev/sdm /dev/sdn /dev/sdo /dev/sdp /dev/sdq -f
the kernel failed to rescan the partition table: 16
cannot label 'sdc': try using parted(8) and then provide a specific slice: -1
I found another post on this subject here, but I can confirm that these disks have never been part of an MD array before.
Here's what I've tried so far:
According to mount, none of these disks are currently mounted (they don't even have a file system anyway).
I've used zpool labelclear /dev/sd[c-q] to erase any ZFS metadata from them.
I've used dd to just zero the disks out.
