I had a power interruption that caused more than one issue on my server. Unfortunately, the backup was running at the time, and needless to say, I am in a bad place with my FreeNAS raid pool. I have had to replace the USB boot device, but I have been unable to import my storage. The backup media had the configuration file for FreeNAS and my data. As such, I just need to try to recover my RAID data if possible.

zpool seems okay when I try the import.

[root@freenas ~]# zpool import                                                  
    pool: Asus-i5-FreeNAS

    the '-f' flag.

I then try the import with a -f Asus-i5-FreeNAS which will crash FreeNAS out to the db> prompt with an error.

panic:Solaris(panic) zfs: allocating allocated segment(offset=4399056523264 size=73728) of (offset=4398587316272 size=833703936)

I was only able to import the pool again using the following command line: zpool import -F -m -o readonly=on -f Asus-i5-FreeNAS

This will import the pool and show that there are 5 permanent errors.
