EDIT: I suppose I ought to ask for some clarification, since it is not clear what you believe the problem is. Is the problem that it is gzipped? Is the problem that it is from another system? Is the problem that you are not running ZFS on your FreeBSD installation?
I just wanted to know the whole procedure. I've already taught it myself - created a pool and streamed snapshot to it. Unfortunately after some time an error occurred: "unable to create zvol error 17" and machine hanged.
Snapshot was created in fbsd FreeBSD 8.4 and I'm working on 10.3. Can it be the reason?
On the 10.x machine, you would need to create the pool and limit it to ZFS v28 features, to make it compatible with the original pool that create the snapshot. Something like: # zpool create -o version=28 mypoolname /dev/ada1 (use the correct disk name!)
Then you could receive the snapshot into that pool.
