Hi list,
I have a (naive?) question: what is the preferred plan to replace a bad 

Suppose I have a pool with "autoreplace=on": can I simply remove the 
affected disk, wait 30 seconds, and insert the new one? Or should I 
preventively put the disk in offline status with "zpool offline ..." ?

 From my tests, the disk is successfully replace by using either method. 
But does a precise recommendation exists?
