  1. I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. I'll have no idea if the solder was bad or if it was the parity drive
  2. So I lost 8 drives due to a completely moronic move and I have been repairing them one by one. I do not know which drives were which. I have been de soldering the BIOS chips of my old drives onto new PCBs and so far so good. I have managed to resurrect 3 of 8 dead drives so far. What I am curious about is this: when I finally get to my old parity drive and I plug it in and mount it, what will I see? I just was hoping to have some idea so when I do get to that one I know to just skip it.
  3. @trurl I don't believe I have any saved but if there are some that still exist on the forum here they're the same disks so should still apply. Wow that's an impressive find man thanks!
  4. I will do what squid said and just try to mount them as I can and the one I can't must be parity. Is just a shame I will probably have to burn a PCB on a drive without knowing before hand
  5. Yes, all I have is a backup of my config folder and it was previous to this file apparently. Is there a way to get this info from the super.dat file? I mean it's not the end of the world if I order another PCB I can't use but it'd be great if I could skip it obviously
  6. I don't seem to have this file in my config folder.
  7. I burned out 8 HDDs on an old setup. Is there anywhere in my old flash drive that I can find the serial #s to tell which disk was parity and which ones were data? I have started the process of ordering new PCBs for the old dead drives and successfully replaced a new BIOS with the old, and the drive now works again. Since these PCBs are shipped from China and aren't cheap I would like to avoid ordering one for my parity drive as I have gotten new data drives and only wish to reconstruct those.
  8. Hello. I recently lost almost all of my data drives, but my cache drive with all of my dockers on it seems fine. Is there a way to extract a list of my DB from this drive to know all of the TV I'm missing? (Plex DB extraction would be even better as that would have everything that I've lost) Thanks in advance!
  9. They do detect some disks. But with both 9211s when the bios loads it identifies one properly and the other unsuccessfully. I will report back when I get my SAS expander. Which I have verified works with the 9211 in it mode.
  10. SuperMicro CSE-836A-R1200B> I really hope this isn't incompatible as several people from the forums told me that there are "great deals on supermicro 836 cases on ebay".... I wouldn't think it's entirely incompatible as it does see some drives. I think it's just that the BIOS for both cards is not loading correctly.
  11. During boot the 9211 BIOS screen goes by and says something about configuration changes but when I enter it, I don't seem to have many options to change anything. I think this is definitely the problem. Should I get an SAS expander instead of 2 9211 8is? If so, which one would anyone recommend with this card? I've never really used one before.
  12. So I just purchased a Supermicro 836, new Supermicro X10SRL-F, installed 16GB of recommended Supermicro RAM, flashed 2 9211-8i's to IT mode successfully. Plugged everything in, and unRAID just says "too many incorrect disks". It looks from the main page that it sees 3 random disks. Can anyone tell me what I've done incorrectly? tower-diagnostics-20190204-0313.zip
  13. Mini sas has a higher signaling voltage than sata. I suspect that's what happened....should have known not to do that
