Bug#595021: zfsutils: cannot create zpool with five disks, gives memory error on zpool list
When I'm creating a striped array with different sized disks, I can only include all but one of my disks. There's five of them in total, and I can only create a zpool with four or less. The fifth disk could be any of those disks, it's not isolated to a single disk. When trying to create a zpool with five disks, the zpool doesn't show up in "zpool list", instead it returns an error message: "internal error: out of memory". Memory shouldn't be a problem, since I'm running on 64-bit with 4 GB RAM.
All disks are Seagates of varying models:
The command I'm using is "zpool create tank ad10 ad12 ad14 ad6 ad8" and changing the name makes no difference.
"zpool list" then prints nothing, except for "internal error: out of memory".
