Description

Trying to attach a replacement drive (that despite my best efforts, ended up being a 512e / 4k drive) for a 512byte/sector drive that failed in a simple mirror configuration.

Even with -f, zpool attach will not allow the new drive to attach, failing with 'devices have different sector alignment'. It should probably succeed in the -f instance.
