array consists of 1 parity 1 cache and 17 disks.

Nothing fancy

 

pci cards lsi raid card (LSI SAS 9211-8i 6GB/s 8 Port PCIe)

HBA that connects all of the drives ( HP 24 Port PCI-E 3Gb SAS Standard Profile Expander)

Intel quad nic

add in firewire card.

 

everything working prior to update, update, reboot all disk are missing

Its like systems does not see the HBA card.

 

diags taken right after update and notice disks missing.

I've uninstalled the vfio-pci pluggin and deleted the binding since i was not using it any more.

 

I figure i post before i revert to 6.8.3

Well this is very odd, so after I posted I went ahead and left the server alone went to bed, I have been doing some maintenance converting my xfs to encrypted so the server being offline a few more days was not a problem. Woke up got my day going then happened to notice telegram send me notices that all disks were ok.  I'm like WTH, so remote in and sure enough all the disks are present and the array is ready to start.

 

I don't know. before I start the array i did another diag download and I'm posting for science.

aww man so I was about to start the array and just happened to look at the disk sdX and they were in  the incorrect spots.

I had a screenshot and proceeded to put them back until one of the was missing from the list to pick (lesson to be learned by noobs) it catalogue the disk with different sdX that could have been disastrous with serial in hand to the correct spots.

The sdX identifiers are not relevant to unRaid as it identifies disks by serial number (and the sdX designation is allocated dynamically and can change between boots).  The only time it matters is if the disk drops offline after boot and then comes back with a different sdX designation as that scenario is not handled by unRaid.

So I rebooted the array by mistake and again once up disks were missing, stated a "stale config" about 10 minutes later they appear.

 

I pretty sure this is not by design but i'm no sure its a bug.
