zpool: undefined symbol: get_system_hostid
Wed 09 September 2015 — download

I was upgrading my NAS, over a shitty 3G connection, in the middle of nowhere, so I was only upgrading critical/interesting packages (an airgaped machine doesn't need to have up to date ca-certificates)

After a reboot to switch to a new kernel, my data were gone, likely because of the zfs upgrade, fear not, the magic zpool import command is here to save the day:

root@ratigan 15:46 ~ zpool import tank
zpool: symbol lookup error: zpool: undefined symbol: get_system_hostid
zsh: exit 127   zpool import tank

The solution is simply to update your libzpool2 library:

root@ratigan 15:48 ~ apt-get install libzpool2
