    Description

      I posted about this issue in the forum.

       

      This is really the combination of a minor bug and a major bug.  The minor bug is that replication doesn't copy mount points, so it can create a situation where setting "Read Only" to "Set" in the replication GUI can cause warnings on ZFS import.  "zpool import Pool" will warn that it can't create mount points because the dataset is read-only.  I've seen this before with TrueNAS CORE, but never experienced any serious consequences from it until now.  I also didn't even remember tweaking that replication task, since it didn't cause warnings or issues until I rebooted weeks later.

       

      So, having the above warning when the ZFS pool is imported prevents the GUI from importing that pool.  It is fully accessible from the shell despite the GUI saying the import failed, but it doesn't show up under "Storage".  What's worse, this also happens during boot, and causes the boot process to stop on "Import ZFS pools" without showing any sort of error message to indicate why it's stuck at that step.  In my case the offending pool didn't even have the system dataset, but TrueNAS kept waiting on it to import indefinitely.
