I recently did a fresh Solaris 10 install to ZFS configuration.  Before doing so I backed some data on drive 2 (a zfs pool) and took the drive out before the reinstall. Did a format and the system sees drive 2.  How do I mount drive 2 back as a zpool to get that data back?

You need to use "zpool import" command (might need -d or -f option) to find the ZFS filesystem in disk2.
Please have a look at the examples in:

and
