Hi, this is probably a really simple issue but I need to access some files in an SSD but I cannot mount it because as the title suggests, “Filesystem type zfs_member not configured in kernel.”.
I am not sure what to do and I don’t want to risk breaking anything. Any help appreciated.
What Kernel are you using?
What version of ZFS?
Maybe @mbod or @dalto could help, they have a lot of experience with ZFS.
I believe you would need to rebuild your current kernel image to include appropriate module for
zfs-dkms seems to be the package to install.
But, as mentioned above, please wait for forum members with hand-on experience of ZFS to assist you on this one.
Ahh…where did that ssd come from?
You will have to do a number of things.
- You need to install zfs modules and zfs-utils. The easiest way to do that is probably by installing
- You probably don’t need to rebuild your kernel but it would be good to know which kernel you are using.
- After installing the kernel modules above, you need to
sudo modprobe zfs. It is works, it returns nothing.
- Then you can run
sudo zpool import which should get you a list of available zpools. Before going further, I would recommend posting the results of that command here.
