    So I had to reboot my vsan cluster today due to the urgent data consistency update. Done that, fixed the totally annoying "Addition or reconfiguration of network adapters attached to non-ephemeral distributed virtual port groups" issue I always seem to get recently and fired up my freenas box.

    Boom, main pool (8x8TB in mirror config) does not come up - 3 disks show up as "512.0 B" instead of 8 TB so pool cannot be imported.
    Frantic searching in smart data shows all 3 drives have normal size. Reboot Freenas, no change. Search online does yield no results. No idea how recent my remote backup is (assume a week) and whether its complete/usable/recoverable :O

    Thankfully reboot of host solved it, but hey am I aware that I need to run a recovery exercise again;)
    dswartz and Patrick like this.
