Solved Resurrecting ZFS after reinstall

I have one SSD and six hard drives.

The SSD contains UFS partitions for /boot and /.

The hard drives contain a ZFS pool.

I had to replace the SSD because it could no longer mount / (uncorrectable error).

The ZFS pool should be intact, but I don't know what to do to access it. If there were any configuration data in /etc, it is gone.

Is it as simple as starting the service and importing the pool?

Thanks. I was chicken so I first did

zpool import

It told me the name of the pool and that the pool was online and could be imported. So I went ahead.
Good to hear. ZFS is pretty complex, but the most important stuff is pretty easy to manage. :) Just be sure to edit your thread title to mark it as "Solved."
