Some corrections from my own experience. Your "rpool" was mounted at "/rpool" automatically at the time you created rpool. That's why somewhere in the configuration process you issue zfs set mountpoint=none rpool in order to eliminate that behavior. The same you do for rpool/ROOT to eliminate its automatic mounting at /rpool/ROOT, which you don't need. In ...

For the one success, I just happened to use ...
