  1. I just noticed in the screenshot it says 5.0.5, where as mine only mentions 5.0 and not 5.0.4. How would i fix this?


    From your previous posts it looks like you're possibly running esxi, did you update your vmdk (assuming you're booting via that method), or just your USB drive? The vmdk has to be updated as that's what's booting unraid.


    Sent from a mobile device, sorry for any typos.


    Thanks, i had completely forgotten about that. Will make sure to update it.

  2. I been using 5.0 beta 8 on my esxi and has been working well. So i decided to try RC5 which told me to copy the two files over: bzimage and bzroot. Made a new .vmdk file and added it to esxi. It only gives me basic key and wont read my pro key. Not sure if its an esxi thing or rc5 thing. USB flash drive is mounted as well and added.

  3. Im confused on your last sentence, so its not supposed to look like the above if the drives are in the right spot?

    Alright started it and its doing a parity check again, yet drive 3 and 4 say not installed and grey, will it disappear? fine to remove the hdds for good?


    EDIT: actually kinda of pointless now, i ordered some hdds 10 mins ago so wasnt really needed, atleast i can put the old ones to use right away.


    Thanks for your help, much appreciated. I reckon they should update the faq, doesnt mention anything about adding drives and starting. May seem simple but to me it made me worry lol.

  4. Hey guys, so i wanted to remove 2 drives from my setup. I unassigned them and did the initconfig command thinking that this would just remove the two assigned drives and rebuild parity on the current drives.


    Though it seems that it reset the whole list making all drives needing to be added, i added the parity drive and then it disappeared. I probably have done something bad lol. Trying to remove those two drives as they not gonna be replaced.

  5. I seem to have another problem, i enabled disk 2 and moved off all my data. Yet now when i removed the disk, disk 2 says not installed, but i can still access disk2 contents?? Did i backed up and removed the wrong drive? I checked all other drives and its set to "yes (hidden) for export. Drive 1 has the main content so should Drive 2. Drive 3 and 4 are empty and drive 6 has one folder thats only allowed on disk 6.


    The hard drive is removed physically.

  6. Ooo never thought of that, thank you i shall try that.


    EDIT: That worked, but for some reason i cant see the check parity icon in the main menu? How do i scan to check? I did use Unmenu before but when i clicked check parity i have no idea if it actually was. How would i go about checking the status to see how long is left or its progress? Plus it said it was 15,000 days late lol.


    EDIT2: NVM all solved, have a red drive.

  7. Hi,


    I have a slight problem, my unraid box has six disks in total. Parity, Disk 1, Disk 2 are 2TB hard drives. Disk 3, 4 and 5 are 1tb.


    Disk 2 looks like its going to fail soon, so i would like to remove it and just have 5 hard drives running. The problem is how do i replace that 2tb drive with a 1tb drive. It even has 1.3tb of data on it, yet i dont know how to move that data to the smaller drives.


    Is it just a matter of looking whats on the drive and moving stuff over manually?

  8. Hi everyone, just logged in and noticed Disk 2 is red (Hitachi), before it didn't show the temp when it was red and failed a Smart test. So i pushed it in the bay more firmly and it passes the test and shows temp but still red, with orange start. I can still access the disk and shows all data. What should i do?


    Using 5.0-beta8d

    IBM Br10i

    3x 10EADS

    3x Hitachi 2TB


    Would you like me to upload the syslog file? It looks fairly long..


    Thanks guys. ;D


    EDIT: The problem seems to be solved, must of been a loose cable or something.
