Solved: Replacing a failed zfs raidz2 drive on TrueNAS core

Hi I’m currently using TrueNAS Core 13.0-U6.1. I’ve been running system for about 5 years now and unfortunately have replaced a few of the 6TB WD Red Hard Drives over the years. So I currently am using an 8 disk (6TB WD Red) raidz2 with hot spare. My spare was being used for the failed disk. I removed the failed disk, added a new drive and let the device resilver which took a long time. At the end of the process however I thought my spare would be returned to the pool, but this is what I’m seeing:

  pool: tank
 state: ONLINE
status: Some supported and requested features are not enabled on the pool.
	The pool can still be used, but some features are unavailable.
action: Enable all features using 'zpool upgrade'. Once this is done,
	the pool may no longer be accessible by software that does not support
	the features. See zpool-features(7) for details.

	  gptid/a203d5ad-49e3-11ea-9739-0cc47a84a594      INUSE     currently in use

So I’d like to just promote gptid/a60274b0-2e65-11ef-8343-0cc47a84a594 to /dev/da7
and use gptid/a203d5ad-49e3-11ea-9739-0cc47a84a594 which is the “spare” drive and return it to /dev/ada3. I can offline the spare, however I can’t detatch or remove the drive. What is best strategy at this point?


Not sure why I couldn’t do it from the GUI but I ended up using the zpool detach via the CLI like: zpool detach tank gptid/a203d5ad-49e3-11ea-9739-0cc47a84a594

Hopefully that will help me and others in the future.

You need to detach the drive from console. Oh, you figured it out yourself!
