ZFS: zpool doesnt get imported automatically after reboot

I searched the internet for a proper solution, but I just found something like: “use ZFS_MOUNT=yes in /etc/default/zfs”. Even with this option it just doesn’t automatically import my pools. 

I solved this with the following entry in /etc/default/zfs:


This entry enables the use of the pool-cache instead of disk-id’s.
