  1. Also worth noting you need to shutdown the server with the disk in it, the disk has to lose power and boot back up. rebooting the server doesn't kill power to the drive. Mine still had issues till i shutdown the server and powered it back on.
  2. Static pressure fans might be needed, unsure if anyone has done testing with SP fans and non SP fans. which one pulls more air through.
  3. A few people around make these, you rip out the fan wall of 80mm, put in quiet 120mm fans instead. 3d printing will be your friend you need to still get a seal to pull the air threw the hard drives.
  4. Anyone used this 4U 24 Bay Chassis before? Curious what it actually looks like, can only find a few pictures online but they've started appearing in a few spots on the internet. Even with 3 Fans on the front and 3 fans behind the drives i don't see much spacing if any between the drives.
  5. Thank you i thought i'd explore if there was an option, but thats ok moving data around on Unraid isn't the worst thing in the world.
  6. I have a second Cache pool setup with a single disk on XFS. Is there a way to convert the disk to BTRFS then add a second disk to the Pool so they are mirrored? At the moment it looks like the only option is to copy the data off format the disk to BTRFS and copy the data back? is there a way to do this without needing to format?
  7. I was only experiencing read errors, randomly it would go a day or two wihout an issue then read errors. once it completely marked the drive dead. I have RMA'd the disk twice before seeing this post. My Parity Drives are set to spin down after 2 hours but there is usually some activity on my array from Plex that keeps them spinning. I have never seen my parity drives not spinning. 24 hours and stable so far.
  8. ok i completely powered my server down and pulled the power from it. will see if that is good now.
  9. i issued both commands EPC disable and the lowcurrentspinup. on my ST8000VN004 rebooted, but after a spin down event i got errors again a few days later. If there another setting that needs to be disabled, i have forced the drive to stay spun up for the time being. But i do operate a system with 3xLSI 9211-8i Controllers. Not had any issues with my other disks. I do have 2xST8000VN004 additional drives but they are Parity Drives so never spin down. Any suggestions?
  10. If you have more than one Lsi card in the system you can’t have the boot bios on the cards. They fight with each other and what you are describing happens. You don’t need the boot bios unless you are booting Off a hard drive on the lsi controller. But you’re booting from USB so that is never required. You simply erase the bios from each card. If you have one lsi card in the system it’s fine but this behaviour happens with more than one. Sometimes the system can run for an hour before having a heap of issues read errors on drives and slow transfer speeds.
  11. Weirdly it happened again to me, i did reboot after issueing both the EPC disable and the lowcurrentspinup. The errors happened when the drive spun up again. i did a system reboot, do i need to power the whole system down for it to take effect ?
  12. this makes sense my parity drives are seagate 8TB disks but are always spinning. i am not going crazy.. thanks JorgeB applied the changes to the 3 drives and rebooted. see how it goes.
  13. I keep having this weird problem with read errors on a data disk. I have RMA'd one and my second unit same problem, but it preclears fine. I tried a different SATA cable that doesn't seem to have helped. I am not sure if its got something to do with the type of disk i don't operate any other 8TB drives. Extended Smart finished with no errors. its strange. Anyone else know what is happening here, do i just ignore it ?
  14. I remember reading somewhere that if you remove all the data from a Data Drive and remove it from the array. you don't need to rebuild the array. How do you do that? can you do that? my disk9 has failed so i've pulled all the Data off it and want to remove it from the array as a Data Drive i don't want to replace it. Upgrading to 8TB drives so collapsing how many disks are in my array. I just can't work out how to pull the disk without a rebuild being needed?
