Hi!
I accidentally imported the freenas-boot pool into the storage tab. How do I get it out of there safely?
(The warning New feature flags are available for volume freenas-boot. is always displayed, which is annoying)
Cheers
James

Which build version of FreeNAS (System -> Information)?

Also, attach the output of zpool status within code tags.

Did you try turning off the warning? (clear the checkbox)

I've seen this before. Something caused the boot pool to not be treated correctly, but we never figured out how to reproduce that user's problem.

Please post a screenshot of your storage tab.

Sorry for the long wait, but now I have the screenshot.

Actually I was able toe reproduce the problem on another install. I had a broken freenas install (to replace a boken flash drive I replaced it with a new usb flash drive, which turned out to be defective while resilvering the boot pool, I was unable to boot after that) and wanted to see if I could get some data from the broken "old" freenas-boot pool. While importing, a freenas-boot pool was displayed, but it turns out it imported the normal freenas-boot pool of the running system. Maybe that is because they both have the same name?

So I have finally solved this by exporting the database backup, then editing the .db file with an editor and replacing every mention of freenas-boot with xxxxnas-boot (exact name probably does not matter except it seems to be inportant that the number of characters it the same). Then saving the file, putting it back into the .tar with 7zip and then importing the databse backup. Then I was able to export the xxxxnas-boot in GUI.
