NAME

       fsck.zfs - Dummy ZFS filesystem checker.

SYNOPSIS

       fsck.zfs [options] <dataset>

DESCRIPTION

       fsck.zfs  is a shell stub that does nothing and always returns true. It
       is installed by ZoL because some  Linux  distributions  expect  a  fsck
       helper for all filesystems.

OPTIONS

       All options and the dataset are ignored.

NOTES

       ZFS datasets are checked by running zpool scrub on the containing pool.
       An individual ZFS dataset is never checked independently of  its  pool,
       which is unlike a regular filesystem.

BUGS

       On some systems, if the dataset is in a degraded pool, then it might be
       appropriate  for  fsck.zfs  to  return  exit  code  4  to  indicate  an
       uncorrected filesystem error.

       Similarly,  if  the  dataset  is  in  a  faulted  pool and has a legacy
       /etc/fstab record, then fsck.zfs should return exit code 8 to  indicate
       a fatal operational error.
