pfSense 2.3.2 on ZFS
« on: March 29, 2017, 09:16:37 am »
Hello everybody!
There was a problem with installing pfSense 2.3.2 on ZFS
Installed 2.2.2 with the help of the official installer on ZFS
Then updated from the console to version 2.3.2
All works, only at loading it produces a message
ZFS: i / o error - all block copies unavailable  :'(
Then the system continues normal loading
Tell me how to fix this error?  :o

Use 2.4 if you want ZFS.

Your task is not possible. The ZFS installation options were removed from 2.3 because they did not fully work properly, and we did not test or verify their functionality so manually configuring it has undefined, but potentially broken, behavior.

We added them back in 2.4 because we switched to the same installer used by FreeBSD and it was stable there.

Using ZFS on any version prior to 2.4 is not supported and is most likely going to not work or be unstable.

If it was going to work, the procedure you followed was your best chance. Since that didn't work, you're out of luck.
