Thanks for your answer.
Why moving the pool to another host would require exporting it and not just 
unmounting it?
I do not see any difference from mounting the pool on a live system and 
mounting it on another host...
Or does it have something to do with a kind of identifier related to the 
hardware hosting the devices?
