How to mount zpool FreeBSD

 How to mount a zfs disk on an installed FreeBSD system
 On my FreeBSD desktop there was a system on an SSD drive, I used an HDD drive for file cleaning.  All this was spinning on celerone with 512MB of RAM and naturally on ufs.
 Now there is 6GB of RAM, and like many, I probably wanted to see how the system will work on zfs, how much faster it will be, but that's not the point.
 I installed FreeBSD on my SSD drive using the ZFS file system and connected the drive formatted to ZFS HDD already with the created pool.  The system worked perfectly, but the trouble is, the second disk was not mounted.
 If someone had a similar problem and the disk with the ZFS pool created by zpool was not mounted on the installed system, then this article may be useful for you.

 So run the command to view the mounted pools

 zpool list

 You will see only one pool

 In my case

 zroot 81.5G 12.4G 69.1G - 11% 15% 1.00x ONLINE -


 zpool status

 to see the available pools for import

 zpool import

 At first I simply imported zpool into an alternative root directory with the command to check if it is mounted or not

 zpool import -o altroot = / mnt your pool name

 Yes, the pool was mounted in the / mnt directory you can check with the command

 ls / mnt

 When I was convinced that everything was ok exported zpool command

 zpool export

 To mount the second disk after rebooting the system, you need to mount it with the creation of the cache command

 zpool import -o ro and here is the name of your ZFS pool
