• Drives Disapperaing from Dropdown list

    • Retest Minor

    Just setting up a new system and decided to try with the beta as I do not risk losing any data. When I add a parity drive to the parity pool the disk just disppears from the list and is no longer in the drop down list but the disk is listed still with Unassigned devices. It works fine with the Stable release but just not with Beta 25. It also happens with Disk 1 onwards also.

    Sep  7 20:24:58 SERVER-LOKI emhttpd: error: ckmbr, 2136: No such file or directory (2): open: /dev/sdd1

    This error suggests a problem with the GPT partition, after the problem happens please post output of:


    fdisk -l /dev/sdX

    This is a bug corrected in next release.


    To get around it, you can use these commands:

    (example for sdd taken from your syslog, double check this is the correct device)

    sgdisk -Z /dev/sdd
    sgdisk -o -a 8 -n 1:64:0 /dev/sdd

    Then the device should be recognized.

    Thanks but the device is still not shown in the device list after running those commands. For now I will drop back to the last stable release until the next beta.
