  1. Just a quick update incase anyone reads this. I swapped out the motherboard/cpu tray and also removed the cache drive. I re-ran the parity check which found 20455 more errors but after that run I ran it again and it came back with zero errors this time. Hopefully the issue is sorted now and was most likely hardware related.
  2. Ok I will see if swapping out some hardware makes any difference. I think the first parity check definitely had more errors but I couldn't be exactly sure of how many more. Is there any way to work out what disk those sectors starting at 4194400 are on? Edit: So actually the first check returned 392611 errors and second one was 59073 errors
  3. Thanks for clarifying. I am using a HP N36L microserver with 16GB of ECC RAM at the moment. As luck has it I just got a N54L and was planning on moving everything over to that motherboard to upgrade the CPU. I suppose I will give that a go and see if the errors go away then. I assume that with that many errors I can safely assume I am not protected by parity in case of a disk failure? It is odd as I never had any issues when running a 5 x 2TB ZFS RAIDZ pool on the same hardware and I resilvered the array due to a disk failure not that long ago and didn't experience any data loss that I noticed... Thanks again for your help.
  4. So I recently migrated from FreeNAS using two new 10TB shucked WD white label drives, 3 x 2TD WD Red drives and an old 120GB SSD from my last setup. Everything seemed to have worked fine until I performed the first scheduled parity check which returned something like several tens of thousands of sync errors... I ran a full SMART check on the parity drive and there was no issue reported. I have just run another parity check and this time it came back with 59073 errors. I know the SSD drive I am using for cache has some SMART errors reported but I thought the cache drive was not part of the parity? I have also been using the /mnt/cache folder directly so not sure if that could also be an issue? The next step I was going to take was to remove the cache drive entirely for now and see if the errors go away. Is there anything else I can do to narrow down the cause of these parity issues? I have attached my diagnostics file. Thanks! illmatic-diagnostics-20191204-0939.zip
  5. Really small one but there seems to be an html maxlength set to 4 on the remote_port field on the Syslog settings page. However some services like PaperTrail often give five digit port numbers. Editing the html in the browser to remove this limit seems to allow the form to save correctly and it works so I think its just a UI issue.
  6. Just incase anyone comes across this, what I ended up doing was: Stoped and backed up my VMs in FreeNAS and replaced the SSD cache drive with one of the new 10TB disks. Create a new zpool called transfer with just the single new 10TB disk. Created a ZFS snapshot of my main pool and used send/receive to copy it to the new disk: zfs snap pool@migrate zfs send pool@migrate | pv | zfs recv -F transfer That took about 31hrs to copy 6.6TB. Then I stoped everything accessing my pool to create a final snapshot and updated the new disk with it incrementally: zfs snap pool@incremental zfs send -i migrate pool@incremental | pv | zfs recv transfer Then I was able to reboot into unraid and install the ZFS plugin to import and mount my transfer pool: zpool import -f transfer I then created my unraid array with the other 10TB disk and 3 of the remaining 2TB disks without parity. Finally I used rsync to move all the data from that disk into my new array: rsync -aHP /transfer/ /mnt/user/RAIDZ/ NB: I used the NerdPack plugin to install screen so I could run rsync detached in the background, I also added the -H flag to preserve some hard links I had in my data. The rsync transfer is still running but once it completes I plan to format the transfer 10TB disk and add it as a parity drive to the array. I already miss FreeNAS and ZFS in particular, but I need the flexibility to create an array with odd sized disks and unraid seems to do everything I need so far.
  7. So I am planning on moving from FreeNAS to UNRAID, primarily to take advantage of the flexibility of increasing the size of the array. My current setup is 5 x 2TB drives in RAIDZ and a single SSD as system/docker drive My plan is to buy two 10TB drives but I am not sure about the best way to approach the data migration as I only have 6 available SATA ports in my HP microserver. From what I have read I could remove the SSD and attach a single new 10TB drive then either: 1) Copy the array data to the new 10TB migration drive in freenas, reboot and initialise UNRAID with 1 10TB and 4 2TB disks and then copy data into the new array then replace a 2TB disk with that 10TB migration disk or 2) Init UNRAID on a single 10TB drive, use the zfs plugin to mount the pool disks, copy data to the single drive then add the rest of the other disks to unraid? I am leaning towards number one, but does anyone know if there is a better solution or if there would be any issues with the above? Also I am probably going to be buying WD MyBooks so could possibly use the fact they have USB connection but I don't think the microserver has USB3 so not sure if the transfer rate would be so slow it would be useless? Any advice is appreciated!
