Description

I just installed 151a7 on a new system with disks connected directly to an LSI-9207-8i HBA. The installer correctly located the attached disks, built the rpool and boots fine:

root@hcp-dr-zfs01:~# zpool status
  pool: rpool
 state: ONLINE
  scan: none requested
config:

        NAME                       STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
        rpool                      ONLINE       0     0     0
          c4t5001517972EE63FBd0s0  ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors

When I attempted to add a second disk to mirror the rpool the zpool command reports: EFI labeled devices are not supported on root pools.

root@hcp-dr-zfs01:~# prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c4t5001517972EE63FBd0s2 | fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c4t5001517972EE64A2d0s2
fmthard: Partition 2 specifies the full disk and is not equal
full size of disk.  The full disk capacity is 156273152 sectors.
fmthard:  New volume table of contents now in place.
root@hcp-dr-zfs01:~# zpool attach -f rpool c4t5001517972EE63FBd0s0 c4t5001517972EE64A2d0
cannot label 'c4t5001517972EE64A2d0': EFI labeled devices are not supported on root pools.

Seems the installer is supoorting EFI labled disks for rpool but the zpool command is not.

This bug should be closed. The problem was my oversite:

zpool attach -f rpool c4t5001517972EE63FBd0s0 c4t5001517972EE64A2d0

's0' should have been appended to the disk ID of the second disk.
