  1. My friend told me to plug the troublesome drives (with the 3.3V pin issues) into my hotswap cages - lo & behold I was able to 'see' them. I am now preclearing all in one go! It seems that the hotswap cages corrects the power issues. I am really grateful for my peer expertise including you guys. My unRAID is hopefully on its way to a 'healthy' state. Thank you all.
  2. Hi Frank1940, thanks! The response was extremely useful - especially since I may ignorantly end up with two bricks! Out of warranty, may I add. Cheers.
  3. Thanks, I had to stop the array, assign No Device to Disk 7, then start the service, stop, assign the same disk to it, restart... to get the data-rebuild going. I wonder what I can do with the 2 new WD drives? Any ideas? One gave the errors, and the other was not detected at all in Unassigned Devices... I think I will try adding on the missing one again after my unRAID gets back to a stable state. My plan was to install an extra parity and add another 8TB to the array... I will have to wait for a day or two until the rebuild is complete.
  4. I have put the disk config in maintenance mode, and running an xfs_repair check now with -n to see what comes up.
  5. So on reboot, it goes back to normal but Disk 7 remains disabled. Any way to bring it back to 'life'? thanks johnnie for your assistance. i can never say that enough.
  6. Thanks johnnie, I suspect I may have damaged the SATA connector on the drive when I was dismantling it from the external casing. I am removing both the drives to test now.
  7. And it gets worse, the unRAID comes up on the attached monitor but GUI does not connect, and after about 5 mins, it comes up. Then it says 'starting services' for a long time... when I click on the log, it says "waiting for"
  8. Hi there, I added two WD 8TB drives to a perfectly working unRAID system - when the system boots up, it goes into Stale Configuration. I have attached the diagnostic file here, generated when the system could not gracefully shut down after 60 secs. Further to this one of my new 8TB became disabled. (Disk 7) Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Regards. cL clnasty-diagnostics-20191119-2208.zip

  10. As things goes, I forgot to change to a new SSD on the day, and the CRC Counts continued to mount. It’s now 1061 and consistently increasing. I flashed the firmware, not sure I mentioned that. No use. It may have corrupted my Plex docker. I’ve moved my Plex to another PC. I have since experienced a SATA port to board fault so I suspect these soldered ports may be an issue as well. So I wasn’t sure if it was caused by one or the other. Reboots still happen but infrequently. I‘m waiting to upgrade from 8 port SATA expansion card to 16 port SATA expansion card so I might use one of the new ports. A day’s work is never done (sigh). Thanks for asking.

  12. Thanks. Purchased mine already. [emoji1696] keeping my fingers crossed this will solve my problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Thanks for the info. Could you please send me a link for the 9201-16i?
  14. It's got one already. I am all out of SATA ports. What's a recommended server case, mobo & CPU configuration? A link to any current posting is appreciated. I did a quick search but came up zilch. Regards. cL
  15. Upon reboot, there were no errors so I am hopeful it will stay that way. 😥
