    Dual parity worth it with 8 discs?

    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.
  2. 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!

    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...

    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?!?

    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.

    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€+.

    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

    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

    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

    Maybe you're right. The Marvell Controller seems to work for a few users with all disks but one or it is working never. Nearly the same problem could cause this. Some drives are working some not, even if they worked before. At least it is possible. I think I should look for a SATA/SAS-Controller. My x16 PCIe is free and I've got a x8 and x4 PCIe to use. It is sad to habe 10 SATA-ports which are working properly. This was THE reason to buy this board Anye recommendations on SATA oder SAS-Cads which I could use, preferably 4-8 Ports on x16 or x8 which are not limiting the disks in speed when using more than one and which is working natively with unraid. I never give up dreaming, that it could work perfectly. Btw. my back hurts... stupid window, 2 Server, defect cable, problems with police and because of that 2 Orders and long waiting for delivery, defect parity drive while parity swap, new drives are not recognized, not recognized anymore, the window. Now I could handle some luck in this situation

    The now parity drive was the first I got delivered of the three. This was not recognized, because of the Marvell-Controller on the board. The old disks were using all of the ports of the Intel-Controller. In the USB-Dock it was working every time. But because the disk has no P3 and was spinning there were no problem with power (3.3V on Pin3). Then I was connecting it to the Intel-Controller and the disk was working instantly. I assigned it to the array and as the other two were delivered (now the 2 12TB data disks and the one which isn't working anymore on Intel). I installed them in USB in precleared them. After that they got installed on Intel-SATA (Onboard), becuase Marvell won't work. Same as the first Drive, they just worked on Intel. Now after restart one disk of them is not working anymore. So the main problem at the beginning was that Marvell was not working with the disks. That's why I don't use this for the disks.

    I suggest that. But why this happens suddenly to one disk, which was working before and why not to the other (same) disks? Same Firmware and Same Fabrication Date. At first Marvell is not working and now Intel? And not on every disk but sporadic on one disk which was working? Very strange.

    When the disk is connected to the Gigabyte Onboard SATA (Intel) in either way. On slot 2 where it belongs, on Slot 1 instead of Parity or on any other slot it will freeze. Even if I take a new SATA-Cable this will not work and it freezes on boot-logo (Gigabyte) without any chance to enter BIOS. I am NOT using the marvell controller. Only the Intel one, because Marvell don't regognize the disk in either way. And this was not the first delivered disk which was not regognized (on marvell) why I opened this thread. This was the parity disk which is running fine since then on Intel-SATA. When I took it away from internal SATA and put it in the USB-Dock via USB-3 it boots and everything is okay. The drive is recognized, I can run SMART, which I did and it returns no error. And the Array work. This drive which could not run on Intel-SATA, was running on Intel-SATA for 2 days or so and was working. But I cannot have it in the USB-Dock all time. A huge Case with 2 12TB (1 data, one parity) installed, a little 2,5" Cache SSD and on top of the case the USB-dock with the second of two 12TB Data disks, because it won't run on the intern SATA-Controller.

    I answered to your deleted post. Wasn't that for me? SAS Controller for SATA? Does this work? Theoretically they are designed to work with, right?

    How could that happen, diagnosed or repaired?
