Run 'zpool import' to list which pool cannot be imported:
# zpool import pool: test id: 13783646421373024673 state: FAULTED status: One or more devices are missing from the system. action: The pool cannot be imported. Attach the missing devices and try again. see: https://illumos.org/msg/ZFS-8000-6X config: test FAULTED missing device c0t0d0 ONLINE Additional devices are known to be part of this pool, though their exact configuration cannot be determined.
ZFS attempts to store enough configuration data on the devices such that the configuration is recoverable from any subset of devices. In some cases, particularly when an entire toplevel virtual device is not attached to the system, ZFS will be unable to determine the complete configuration. It will always detect that these devices are missing, even if it cannot identify all of the devices.
The pool cannot be imported until the unknown missing device is attached to the system. If the device has been made available in an alternate location, use the '-d' option to 'zpool import' to search for devices in a different directory. If the missing device is unavailable, then the pool cannot be imported.
