Moved a degraded pool to new 11.2 server. Need to fix drives asap.

I was running a raidz3 pool with 8 drives on my old server. I suddenly had trouble with 3 of the 8 drives dropping and determine the motherboard had an issue. The issue was coming from a chip that handled some of the additional sata ports and I shut down immediately to migrate. I just replaced the server with a new one and imported my degraded pool. Currently freenas (11.2) seems to be scanning the drives and I was wondering if I have to wait this out before reslivering the down drives. Currently the storage>disks and storage>pools>status shows all 8 drives but they all seem to be online. On the main dashboard the pool shows as healthy with all 8 drives though disk details are not available. When I choose reports and look at all 8 disks on the activity graphs only five are shown. Pretty sure I am at 5/8 drives and freenas is scanning them. Storage/pools/pool status shows resilver at the top with status scanning. Am I stuck waiting the scan out? Edit: Drives are 4tb if anyone has insight in how long the scan takes.

Scan finish in like 1-2 hours. The pool shows healthy but I think I messed it up a bit. Feel like importing all 8 drives made freenas gui not react to the 3 drives that are currently degraded. Did quick smart tests to figure out which drives were down and replaced one. Reslivering now. By morning I hopefully should be +1 on redundancy and will initiate a second. If I do this for all three the gui will be able to detect any future drives that go down? I really think I messed up importing all 8 instead of 5 drives.

If you had a crap SATA port multiplier die on you and you are able to import the pool on another system then you might be fine

What is the output of zpool status (in CODE brackets)

I think I am good now. I will just need to wait on this second drive and resilver the third. The only reason the drives did not report as failed is that I imported them in that state I believe.
