No, that problem was just that the ZFS pools were newer than my Solaris
10 CD media. When I hooked up a DVD drive and booted from the latest
Solaris DVD, the problem just vanished. I found out that the grub boot
blocks were corrupted or gone, but I never found out why the system went
down in the first place to need the boot blocks.
