Description

A couple of my guys discovered that rapid succession "zfs send/recv" can result in some hidden clones being left around. while not on-demand reproducible, one of the scripts they where working on can reproduce it with relative regularity.

there is a workaround which does work at
http://serverfault.com/questions/66414/cannot-destroy-zfs-snapshot-dataset-already-exists

  1. zdb -d <poolname> | grep %
  2. zfs destroy <clone-with-%-in-the-name>

Could you attach your reproducer script, please?

Maybe you should ask on the developer mailing list for some advice.
