Thank you, that did the trick. That's not terribly obvious from the
man page though. The man page says it detaches the devices from a

You might consider changing the man page, and explaining a little more
what it means, maybe even what the circumstances look like where you
might use it.
This is covered in the "Hot Spares" section of the manpage:
An in-progress spare replacement can be cancelled by detach-
ing the hot spare. If the original faulted device is
detached, then the hot spare assumes its place in the confi-
guration, and is removed from the spare list of all active
It is true that the description for "zpool detach" is overly brief and
could be expanded to include this use case.
