  1. Has anyone grown a raid volume say 4TB to 6TB As one of their parity drives? I am currently testing this. The volume number shows up correctly, as does the size, but I get an error saying wrong... Parity Wrong 2001b4d2041407574 - 6 TB Should be... 2001b4d2041407574 - 4 TB Is there a way to force unraid 6.12 to accept the new size without loosing the data on it?
  2. I am now running 6.1.2, and with a hard drive failure, I noticed the serial numbers for the hard drives are not showing up anymore. Instead I seem to get these weird numbers... that do not correspond to anything on the hard drive physically... I am connecting using two aecera 8 port sata cards. In previous releases I was always able to correlate the hard drive serial number and the drive physically. Has something changed? Device Identification Parity 2001b4d2041407574(SBB) 4TB Disk1 2001b4d2092112206(SBD) 3TB I used to see this: Disk1 PCI-0000;00;1F.2SCSI1:0
  3. Hello all, I have been a long time unraid user. I recently upgraded to 6.1.0 with mixed results. Love the new features and speed of directory caching, but for some reason, every now and then it freezes up the server completely, no network, no logon... Here is a screen capture of the console before reboot... https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=4B479F425D666A23!120&authkey=!ABDG6PMPPRwv-us&v=3&ithint=photo%2cjpg I do have a failed drive now, but it was doing the same thing before. I ordered a HGST Drive to replace it. Also I wonder if having two acera 8 port pcie card

  5. Guys , What are your thoughts on this? http://www.anandtech.com/show/9060/the-asrock-x99-extreme11-review-eighteen-sata-ports-with-haswelle If it works without issues, it just reduced the cost of ownership of a large array! Would we have the drivers needed ?
  6. Does anyone know if it is supported or not in unraid?
  7. Guys, Does the super Micro require a special SFF to SFF cable? It works when I use the SFF to fanout cable, but not SFF-SFF. My Case Norco 24 dive bays, has SFF plugs. The Acera 1222 works great, once you realise you have to set the drives to passthrough mode...DOH! Think I will pick up another cheap used one.

  9. I need two brackets now. Still looking....
  10. Folks I am building my second system, with the latest code. My plan is to use ARC-1222 PCIe and raid 1 the parity drive. My question is, once I am up and running, is there anything that needs to happen if I migrate over only a few disks of the old array that was running 4.6? I expect to have to recreate the the shares, but moving over a sata drive, will it simply see the data, or is there some vodoo I need to do?
  11. Folks does anyone know where I can buy the longer mounting bracket for ARC-1222 PCIe? Mine came with the short bracket only. Seller does not have the other bracket.
  12. Do you have to use the trays? I would love a 5 in 3 where you could just drop the drive in, and have a bungie hold it there, so you can read the serial numbers! No screws to mess with. Hhow well does Unraid handle hot swapping drives? That is what I like on the backblaze pods, the simple drop. I noticed on version 3 they talked about how import vibration is for longevity of the drives, and they added an anti virbation bracket.
  13. Can you guys not use the trays and just insert the drives? That would be great, then you coud see the serial numbers up fron, and plug and pray.
  14. Can you provide the link to ddrescue procedure? I am still stuck with the parity drive showing up as blue, and drive 1 as red. I do not believe I can use the force parity drive back online, since I have a failed drive in the mix, at least not with what I read in the forums. If I can get the parity drive online, then replace the failed drive, for a rebuild, that would be amazing. Looking at building my second unraid as we speak. I think I will port my data over, and reduce the number of drives in half, as I still have many 700GB dirves. Running 4.6 Unraid (If it ain't broke, don't play
  15. The problem I am having is that the start button is greyed out.... It will not let me start, no matter if I unassign slot 1 or not. The parity drive shows up blue.

  17. I have not tried the ddrestore. I did have another 1tb, I tried to port the platters over, but the platters are really in bad shape. Surprised the drive did not fail sooner. Seriously thinking of rebuilding a second unraid server, and porting over the data to new server. If I did, I would want to create a hardware raid 5 for my parity drive, and then the rest of the drives as is. Has anyone one attempted it? I might be able to read the parity drive, as I can see it in ubuntu. The data drive is gone gone gone, gone so long, its gone gone gone so long! Reminds me of a song... Is th
  18. So I had two drives fail within a short time frame, before I could replace my parity drive, during the reboot, a second drive failed and started clicking. I tried so many things. I finally opened the drive, it is not pretty at all. The platters were pretty baddly scratched. I have not tested my parity drive yet. I am hoping that one will be salvagable. In a case of a double drive failure, which drive do you replace fist? The parity right? I have no idea what was on the failed drive. Is there a way of getting a list of files on the failed drive?
  19. Great feedback everyone. Your ZFS Cache Drive, How did you set that up? Did you document it?
  20. Does anyone have a package already setup with the latest stable unriad version, plex, unmenu couch patatoe, sabnzbd, and sickbeard ? I currently have an older version running with sabnzb and unmenu. I wish I had the time to hack. I bought an apple tv and although netflix is pretty cool, the video quality is driving me crazy! If I understand correctly, plex and stream 1080p to apple tv 3?
  21. Who has the fastest Unraid rig? I know about the ethernet limitations, but I do alot of video, and copy and move video on the array itself. I was curoius who had the best build? Anyone running it on infiniband or anything faster?
  22. http://www.zdnet.com/blog/storage/build-a-10-gbit-home-network-for-1100/284 Now that 10Gige is a reality for the home, it might be time to speed up unraid. Those of us using large video files (Weddings, Advertising (low budjet), it certainly would make moving files around so much faster! Thoughts, Comments, next steps?
  23. So to safely run with the MV8 card, what version of unraid should we be running?
  24. Same problem on same version here. Did U Resolve it?
  25. If only they made a case with a clear front so you can read the serial numbers. Better yet, a smaller version of the backblaze case, where you simply drop the hard drive into the case upright, no screws or cables to plug, and you see the serial numbers!
