Pick a pool name.
The pool name is used to identify the storage pool when you are using the zpool or zfs commands. Most systems require only a single pool, so you can pick any name that you prefer, provided it satisfies the naming requirements outlined in ZFS Component Naming Requirements.
Create the pool.
# zpool create tank mirror c1t0d0 c2t0d0
If one or more devices contains another file system or is otherwise in use, the command cannot create the pool.
