pool-build pool-or-uuidcommand builds a pool with a specified pool name or UUID. The options
--no-overwritecan only be used for a pool whose type is file system. If neither option is specified, and the pool is a file system type pool, then the resulting build will only make the directory.
--no-overwriteis specified, it probes to determine if a file system already exists on the target device, returning an error if it exists, or using
mkfsto format the target device if it does not. If
--overwriteis specified, then the
mkfscommand is executed and any existing data on the target device is overwritten.
