How to reimport your unmounted ZFS Pool

After a restart it can happen that your ZFS Pool does not remount automatically. If that happens you can do the following to fix this issue. I have written this hotfix because I ZFS has alot of commands that can import or add a drive but this one did the trick for me. Tested on a Mac Mini running ZFS 2.1.0.

$ sudo zpool import
   pool: backupraid
     id: 12345678901234567890
  state: ONLINE
 action: The pool can be imported using its name or numeric identifier.

# Take the ID for the final import
$ sudo zpool import 12345678901234567890

After that your Pool should be remounted again and you can use it like before.
