Importing Existing Storage Pools

This allows you to import an existing storage pool, as well as any inadvertently unconfigured pools. This can be used after a factory reset or service operation to recover user data. Importing a pool requires iterating over all attached storage devices and discovering any existing state. This can take a significant amount of time, during which no other storage configuration activities can take place. To import a pool in the BUI, click the 'IMPORT' button in the storage configuration screen. To import a pool in the CLI, use the 'import' command.

Once the discovery phase has completed, you will be presented with a list of available pools, including some identifying characteristics. If the storage has been destroyed or is incomplete, the pool will not be importable. Unlike storage configuration, the pool name is not specified at the beginning, but rather when selecting the pool. By default, the previous pool name is used, but you can change the pool name, either by clicking the name in the BUI or setting the 'name' property in the CLI.
