  1. If I already have a ibm 1015 that was already flashed with the IT firmware do i need to go through the whole flash process ie ge the address earace flash etc etc or can I just flash the new it firmware??
  2. I seem to have my array in a state where I can hit the so called shingle wall. I have 3 of the Seagate 8tb drives 2 data with about 700gb free with the other parity. I also have 2 8tb reds one a second parity the other a replacement for a 3tb green. when mover kicks in and starts writing the 40gb files I have siting there or my 120gb disk image backups as soon as about 20gb of data has been written the array grinds I even see read performance issues on other disks. stats show single digit to no reads or writes for periods of time.and I get video playback issues.
  3. nope no dd running. root@Tower:~# ps aux | grep dd root 2 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? S Mar23 0:00 [kthreadd] root 11 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? S< Mar23 0:00 [lru-add-drain] root 3683 0.0 0.0 273020 3948 ?

S Mar25 133:58 [unraidd] root 17046 0.0 0.0 9640 1832 pts/2 S+ 15:54 0:00 grep dd so what about it writing to the disk before it's finished a rebuild
  4. I hope dd is not running will check when i get home
  5. I did see that i killed the preclear script before i replaced the disk. Also it initialy started rebuilding at over 100mb/sec so it only started happening. I also verfied with stats that there wasnt any other disk reads going on.
  6. I decided to replace my oldest disk a 3tb wd green. I had a new 8tb red ready to go all pre-cleared so I stopped the array assigned the new drive to the slot I wanted to use and started array and all looks good rebuild underway. Then this morning I wake up to see the array is now rebuilding at 345kb/sec I also noted that mover started and started to move some files. The first file it moved seemed to go as per normal in terms of speed but after that things went bad. What I did notice is that mover was moving data to the new currently being rebuilt disk I though the free space on a larger disk was not available until it was rebuilt and then even after a stop and start of the array?? Am I in trouble here?? It rebuilt 2.5tb in 11 hours now sayd it will finish in 256 days. tower-diagnostics-20170326-0754.zip
  7. i'll reply to some of the questions. turl if you read my original post I had a failed disk as well as a disk that started throwing read errors and unrecoverable relocated sectors. Disk 8 was this disk in my array and I copied the simulated disk8 data off onto other disks. I knew that a parity rebuild was not going to work given the errors. The next part was me using a precleared disk formatted in ud and then I copied the data off disk 2 which has the sector read errors. All 3tb of data apart from 2 files copied across. At this stage I had not done anything with the array in terms of me ending up going to need to do a parity rebuild. So once disk 2 data was copied off I did a new config and auto assigned the cache and parity. Then all the other data disk minus disk 8 which had not data and disk 2 was replaced with the ud formatted disk with all of disk 2's data. As pointed out it did not like the fact the starting sector of the format was not 64 might be something that ud can build in as I see what I did as a valid recovery. Anyways bad disk 2 was mounted in ud and I am now copying the data off it back into the now parity protected array after that rebuilt. So I had 1 disk fail and 1 disk start throwing bad sectors and only 2 files lost as I know they will not copy across which I can obtain again.
  8. I thought I would do the change a slightly different way but it didn't like it. I did a two pass preclear on a disk and then formatted it and mounted it with unassigned devices xfs. I copied the data off the bad drive only lost two files with read errors. thought I would be able to lob the new disk into the array turns out did not like the new disk came up as not mountable and needed to format. so did I don't something wrong or cannot I not put a disk into the array that unraid hasn't formatted itself??? when I put the ud formatted disk in the array I did a new config and had no parity at the time. I have the bad disk mounted in ud and will copy the files again back into the array.
  9. So I had a disk red-ball. I had enough space on existing drives in the array I was able to copy off all the data from the protected disk. During the copy process 2 files failed to transfer with errors turns out one of the other disks in the array started having unrecoverable read errors and it's health now shows some sectors that need to be relocated. So I wanted to ask the following. I am not going to rebuild the failed disk, as far as unraid is concerned there is no data on it anyways. I know my parity is now bad given 1 disk has read errors, so what should I do to get back top good. I need a new disk as I don't have enough free space to copy off the data from the now failing disk. Do I get a disk pre-cleared do a new config with all the data drives including the bad one on the array and not assign my parity yet copy off all the data from the now failing disk, once done remove the bad disk and then add parity for rebuild??
  10. not sure if it belongs here but here is the diags from my failed disk straight after upgrade to 6.3 I do not have the diags from rite after it was upgraded due to stupidity. The disk has been unselected and the array is running with disk 8 being emulated. I try to mount the disk via the UD plugin and I get these errors Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: REISERFS (device sdp1): found reiserfs format "3.6" with standard journal Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: REISERFS (device sdp1): using ordered data mode Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: reiserfs: using flush barriers Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: REISERFS (device sdp1): journal params: device sdp1, size 8192, journal first block 18, max trans len 1024, max batch 900, max commit age 30, max trans age 30 Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: REISERFS (device sdp1): checking transaction log (sdp1) Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: mpt2sas_cm2: log_info(0x31120b10): originator(PL), code(0x12), sub_code(0x0b10) Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: mpt2sas_cm2: log_info(0x31120b10): originator(PL), code(0x12), sub_code(0x0b10) Feb 7 12:02:06 Tower kernel: mpt2sas_cm2: log_info(0x31120b10): originator(PL), code(0x12), sub_code(0x0b10) Feb 7 12:02:07 Tower kernel: mpt2sas_cm2: log_info(0x31120b10): originator(PL), code(0x12), sub_code(0x0b10) Feb 7 12:02:07 Tower kernel: mpt2sas_cm2: log_info(0x31120b10): originator(PL), code(0x12), sub_code(0x0b10) Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: mpt2sas_cm2: log_info(0x31120b10): originator(PL), code(0x12), sub_code(0x0b10) Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: sd 5:0:6:0: [sdp] tag#0 UNKNOWN(0x2003) Result: hostbyte=0x0b driverbyte=0x00 Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: sd 5:0:6:0: [sdp] tag#0 CDB: opcode=0x8a 8a 08 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 d0 00 00 00 08 00 00 Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: blk_update_request: I/O error, dev sdp, sector 65744 Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: blk_update_request: I/O error, dev sdp, sector 65744 Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: Buffer I/O error on dev sdp1, logical block 8210, lost sync page write Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: REISERFS warning (device sdp1): journal-837 _update_journal_header_block: IO error during journal replay Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: REISERFS warning (device sdp1): reiserfs-2006 journal_init: Replay Failure, unable to mount Feb 7 12:02:08 Tower kernel: REISERFS warning (device sdp1): sh-2022 reiserfs_fill_super: unable to initialize journal space I have run a manual file system check with no errors apart from it being slow on that drive. I am going to try the following things before I try a rebuild. I am going to reboot with ncq off there is some google searches in regards to the error and ncq. I then wish to reboot back into 6.2.4 to see if the disk can be mounted without the errors. I am just wanting to get the disk mountable before I start the rebuild as a just in case as 1 of my other disks has a smart error about 2 pending sectors which I am not happy about and don't like the chances of the rebuild. tower-diagnostics-20170207-1212.zip
  11. Strange upgraded from 6.2.4 to 6.3.0 and I have the exact same disk type ST300DM001-9YN166 also die on reboot to new version.
  12. Thought I would add my results I actually have 3 m1015's with 13 drives and parity. My parity checks had been sitting at 86mb/sec and 50% cpu usage since upgrading to 6 I did the echo 8 > /sys/block/sdb/queue/nr_requests for all my drives and parity speed jumped back up to 120mb/sec with 20%cpu usage I do have an older firmware on my cards that I have been meaning to do but this does not seem to be restricted to a sas2lp. With the stats before the change I was seeing 1.1gb/sec disk activity during parity check after the change this went up to 1.6-1.7gb/sec disk activity. During my upgrade I also added 3 disks and an extra m1015 so it was hard to work out what caused it but happy with the increase in speed.
  13. Disks in unraid are assigned by their serial number it does not matter where you put them in your physical hardware they will always be the same unraid slot number they are now.
  14. rsync -av --progress --remove-source-files /mnt/diskX/ /mnt/diskY Can this command be used to add files to a disk that already has data on it Ie diskx has a folder call movies with files and disky has a folder called movies with files will it merge or overwrite??
  15. I am looking to do the transfer but want to check something. I have a 4tb drive that I just put into the array, it was my parity disk that was replaced with an 8tb drive. As I have other 8tb drives in the array with about 2.5tb on them and more free space than an empty 4tb drive the 4tb drive has no data on it at all. Is it just a simple stop array change file system bring back online then format to have the same empty disk change the filesystem it uses while keeping parity intact?? Then I can do the data moves between the disks??
