Im trying to import a zpool mirror to a new 8.0 box. The zpool appears on the auto import menu, but after clicking it, it runs "zpool import POOLNAME", imports it, but doesnt mount it. If i run the same command on ssh, I get the same result, "cannot mount '/POOLNAME': failed to create mountpoint" . But if I change the command to "zpool import -R /mnt POOLNAME" It does import and mount it, but it doesnt show up on the GUI.

Whats the correct method for importing an existing zpool from another 8.0 config?

Bump, as I'm having pretty much the exact same problem. (thanks for the -R /mnt tip, btw)

So, Nett, I was able to import a volume and have it show up in the GUI after upgrading to 8.0.1 Beta 2. Check it out here.
