  1. Thank you johnnie for the answer. That's what I though, but better ask. Too bad the temperature sensor failed. Does anyone have any information about the WD external drives ? My Passeport looks like 2.5" so its not useful, however both My Book and Element Desktop seem valid options. Did some of you tried and have feedback ?
  2. No expert but there are special cables that connect 1 SAS port to 4 SATA ports. I think there are several types, so ask before buying. I think the guy from Art of Server has a video about it but I didn't watch it yet. For the IT mode I think it just allows direct disk acces without the RAID layer on the board, that's what you want to do software Raid (FreeNAS) or similar (Unraid).
  3. Hi guys, I just got an issue on my NAS Synology NAS. I know, we are on the Unraid forums... For some back ground, I'm outgrowning my actual NAS (Syno DS414) and I am spending some time heres to get a good understanding of Unraid before going in. The NAS shut down with a message on my phone about a drive temp too high. A cleanup and few restarts later same thing. I pulled the drive and it is clearly not at the 97°C or 108°C that Syno claims. I looked at it with my USB / SATA dock, looks good but no Crystaldiskinfo cannot read the temperature. (see attached diag) After maybe 20mins in the dock, the drive is barely warm and Crystaldisk reads 98°C ... and temp dropped again after 10 mins. I suppose that Synology takes no risk, consider max temp and shuts down, OK, I can see the rationale. Enough rambling, I have questions a few questions : 1- Is there a way to reset this wrong reading ? 2- Will I be able to use the disk on Unraid in the future if it stays like this or I can already discard it ? 3- I am looking at a remplacement drive, probably to schuck an external WD drive, 10To or 12To looks OK. Is there a difference between the My Book, Passeport and Elements ? I think MyBook have Red drives, can you confirm ? CrystalDiskInfo_20200629202108.txt
  4. I would guess that it is the same procedure, except two drives would then be seen as unmountable. I wonder if the order of Parity 1 and Parity 2 is important when assigning those drives ?
  5. With the Unraid USB Flash Creator you can select the last beta : (I know my USB drive is not the best choice, it was just a test with the first one on hand )
  6. There is a "Follow" button at the top right of the page, just above "Reply to this post". Regarding your problem, I am sorry I cannot help you.
  7. Salut, je ne suis pas un expert, je commence tout juste à rassembler de l'information avant de me lancer éventuellement. Il me semble que le Mover sert à déplacer les fichiers entre le Cache et l'Array en fonction des préférences de chaque partage.
