Debian install via debootstrap on zfs root on USB


Hey, guys,
I have a problem with my existing port of Debian running on a USB stick and driving my QNAP, to ZFS Filesystem.
So I want to run my Debian server via ZFS root.
Basically I have no problems with it and have already done some installations of this kind.

If I install Debian on ZFS (root) on an internal hard disk, there are no problems.
I have no problems with Archlinux on USB with ZFS (root),
only with Debian on USB with ZFS (root) the pools are not included at startup.
I guess it's the order of the devices at boot time, in this case USB.
In Archlinux ( or Manjaro) I can use mkinitcpio.conf to set when the blockdevice should also be available (hooks: block, keyboard....etc).
How can I do this on Debian?
Or isn't that my problem?
Basically I follow these instructions:
https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/wi...ch-Root-on-ZFS

If anyone has done something like this before or has a tip, I would be very grateful.

If you need more information to understand, just please ask.
greetings
thomas

The entry has been read 133 times and nobody seems to have an idea.
hmm..
Have I made myself unclear or misleading?
Should I explain more about installation or partitioning?

The aim was to install Debian on ZFS Root on a USB stick.
I did this installation several times in a virtual machine and documented it.

It works both installing Debian on a USB stick and installing Debian zfs root on a VM, BUT not
Debian based on ZFS root on USB.

I suspected that the USB drivers were not loaded early enough to find the pool.
But adding the modules in /etc/modules has not changed anything

If I run the command
'zpool import pool -N' and then enter exit,
the system boots just as it should, but not by itself.




Maybe it'll be a little clearer now? I hope =


Thanks for your help in advance

Hey, guys,

I solved it with the help of the Debian forum and my own research.
There was only a timeout to enter in /etc/default/grub to load the USB drivers.
