  1. My Bad, sorry, i thought the check will resume at the point it was paused last time. So the schedule is only for pause the parity check and the server has to be powered on until the check is done completely? Otherwise the beginning is very good checked but not the rest and the parity check can not finish, right? Then a pause when one of the drives reaches a defined temperature would be even better. When the server has to be powered on all the time this could be useful to cool the system down a little while in pause. When there is a possibility to implement this. Thank you for the clarification.
  2. I know, but it requires when adding the schedule that the server is running during that time. My server somtimes does not run for a week or so. For this it would be great to check partly the parity and then shutdown (without schedule). Or am I wrong that the schedule is needed to use this plugin?
  3. The plugin works only on schedule right? When my server is not powered on at a specific time it would be nice to have an option to check now for ... minutes/hours. Or better. Check for an hour and shutdown after that
  4. Thank you for pointing this out to me, this is a very interesting feature for me, as my servers are only running when I need them and my parity checks takes over 17 hours
  5. Coolest part of the day are here (germany) in the middle of the night. I'd to run the server then. My 12TB drives are getting hot while checking parity, thats why I wished me to pause while the drives are to hot and when it takes a lot longer but keeps the drives cool. edit: @ itimpi the problem is, when the case has 4 fans and the drives are in the coolest area just behind that fans the drives (3x12TB) are getting hot anyway. To improve that I placed the pc on an open window in the winter. But when the room is too hot (summer) I need an AC to cool it down. But maybe it is not a big of a deal to pause the parity check when one drive reaches an unsecure level of temperature. That is THE reason for me to run parity checks not that often.
  6. Is it possible to pause pause the parity check when the disks are getting hot? Best case fans are not working well when the room is too hot (summer). And is it possible to implement a button on the main page to do a partial parity check on demand? My server only runs when needed and sometimes only 1h a day or less Nice feature btw!
  7. Good choice to go dual. In my case I had a cable issue and while I want to do a parity swap to a bigger one my parity drive had uncorrectable errors. I had notifications on to see warnings and was doing SMART from time to time. But there where no indication. One data disk was going offline while copying. My luck it was a bad cable. I could have been a failed disk, then I had lost everything on it. With full backup no problem. But only the important files are backed up and the other ones had to be created again with a lot of work hours. So this servers has now 3 4TB drives and 7 3TB disks with dual parity. The other server has 3 12TB with one parity because I don't wanted to buy 4 12TB at the same time, quite expensive. So there is a risk of loosing some data and the important have full backup. Even a dual parity is no replacement for a real backup. So I have to do backups on that anyway. Great choice to go with dual parity imo.
  8. I wanted to thank you Guys for your awesome help. At least one if my two servers is running again normally. This one in this thread. I took the 3 4TB disks out of the other server and while parity swap the parity disk had uncorrectable sectors. So I throw that away. Then i bought 3 PCIe x1 SATA boards. Exactly the one John_M recommended. Sadly only 2 of them fit, because the PCIe graphic card, which I need, covers the third slot with its passive heat sink. So I have one 3TB less but 3 4TB disks additional. 2 of the 4TB are for dual parity and I already computed parity with all drives together. (7 3TB and 4TB disks with dual parity). Took 17 hours but now it has valid parity and the server runs again. Thanks to you guys. So thank you again for your awesome support!
  9. I just bought an HP H220 used here in germany. 69€ with latest HP-Firmware in IT-Mode. When this is not working I have to crossflash. But this should be delivered in 2 Days and is no fake-card...
  10. I wanted to order, but no one under 250€ has it in stock. The cheapest one is 180€ with Express and ebay China with express for 20€ will cost me 80€ in total. So, when I compare, the 180€ one surely is the chinese one too. 250€ against 80€ is a word. This one I would like to order from china (ebay-link (fastest)) but what is the IT Mode described in title? optional ebay-Link 1 optional ebay-Link 2 optional ebay-Link 3 Which one would you get? They are almost same price, but the fastest one has IT Mode whatever this is?!?
  11. Yes, i saw that. It is 100€ but it can take quite some time. 4-10 Weeks. Maybe next time. Waiting for so long to see if it'll work or not is stupid.
  12. Is it recommend not to buy this card from china besides shipping 2 Weeks+? (OEM) On ebay are some which are very cheap (e.g. eBay-Link). I mean 60€ inkl. shipping. Other offers here are around 160€+.
  13. At keast the 9211-8e and the 9305-16e are compatibel with HGST-HE12 (HGST-Link). They don't got any card testet, but chances are high that the newer 9207 works, too. The SFF8087 connector is new to me. Surely I have to order this separately. So it all depends on the cables? The Expander looks like an CPU so without cable. A bit confusing. For now it is the 9207-8i
  14. The 9211 is an older model right? Because it is not listet on the website, but die 9207 is. So 9207 over 9211. I haven't figured out how the expander works, yet. The price difference is not that much. In this case I would definitely go for the 9207. 6GBit/s is enough and there are no need for 12? EDIT: When I informed correct, than the 9207-8i is the actual 6BG/s Modell für SATA/SAS from LSI with X8 3.0 and would be the best what I can get for my money, especially because I begin with 3 12TB drives
  15. Is there a ranglist, which is the best or do you have a special working recommendation of that cards? I never used a controller card before (the ones I bought for the other server were 16€ each and should only work for one disk). So I am new to this. There are so many numbers
