I'm really really new to Ubuntu. Which is probably why I'm facing this predicament...
I couldn't load Ubuntu this evening. For whatever reason I could get to the login screen, but absolutely no further on my account or the guest account. The screen simply wouldn't load.
I have four drives. One SSD, three HDDs in a ZFS Raid. Basically a RAID 5. A & B drives = AB on C drive.
My lack of understanding of Ubuntu made me figure I could just re-install the OS which was on the SSD. So, I overwrote the entire installation. I believe I've reinstalled ZFS correctly on Ubuntu. I then attempted to recreate the pool using what I could remember from the settings. Probably not the right thing to do now that I've done it... I'm cursing myself right now.
Running sudo zpool import gives me
/NameDrive$ sudo zpool import pool: NamePool id: 5108504088423678092 state: UNAVAIL status: One or more devices contains corrupted data. action: The pool cannot be imported due to damaged devices or data. see: http://zfsonlinux.org/msg/ZFS-8000-5E config:
QuantumPool UNAVAIL insufficient replicas raidz1-0 UNAVAIL insufficient replicas sda UNAVAIL sdc UNAVAIL sdd UNAVAIL
I probably screwed up by trying to remount the drive in the same location. I seriously am freaking out that I've lost all of my data.
Any help is appreciated. It should be abundantly clear I don't know what I'm doing and I'm still learning.
If my data is gone and can't be recovered, just let me know.
