NLS Posted September 20, 2022 Share Posted September 20, 2022 I have this post made: ...where it leads me to think of two things missing currently from UNRAID that would be very nice to be implemented (and able to be used directly from the GUI). 1) Actually implement a "read-only and bring online as is" mode. So if disks (more than parity recover ability) are missing, their data will be missing (as they cannot be emulated), but parity is not touched, pending the disks actually coming back later. This feature, would be great for temporary use when actually bringing even a limited server online, is critical. Cache disk can remain read/write (so normally containers and VMs will work - if needed images are in cache as is the default) but no mover will run as the actual array remains read-only. 2) Make it possible through the GUI to actually switch a disk missing with another, trusting it has the same content (bit for bit) as the missing one. For cases of replaced controllers, that normally change the disk identification. Should be an "expert" option, with all the "are you sure you know what you are doing" in place. In the thread above seems there is a workaround to this already? Quote Link to comment
