PARITY NOT VALID: DISK_DSBL


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I just started with the unraid. My set up is:

AMD Phenom II X3 720

4 Gig Ram

Gigabyte 790GP-UD4H

3x WD 2TB WD20EARS

 

I have the last update for my Bios.

 

After the set up. When I go to //Tower and I want to start I have the Parity Not Valid: Disk DSBL error. Before i started I have run smart status report for al the 3 disc's. Didn't receive any error.  After that DSBL error it isn't possible to check the smart status report for that disc. I receive an error:

 

Statistics for /dev/sda WDC_WD20EARS-00M_WD-WCAZA7276572

 

smartctl -a -d ata /dev/sda

smartctl 5.39.1 2010-01-28 r3054 [i486-slackware-linux-gnu] (local build)

Smartctl: Device Read Identity Failed (not an ATA/ATAPI device)

 

A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or more '-T permissive' options.

 

When I check the disc on another computer it works normally after I do a format. So I don't think there is something wrong with the disc.

 

Array Disk Status is:

Disk_Dsbl for my parity

the 2 other disc's have the status OK.

 

I have already checked the SATA cables and even replaced the one for the parity.

 

Any idea what the problem can be? How to fix this?

If you cannot get a smart report on the disk, try

hdparm -I /dev/sdX

where sdX = the three letter drive designation of the parity disk.

 

If you cannot get a smart report, or an hdparm report, then suspect cabling (power or data) or a drive tray, or disk controller port.

Hmm. That result isn't that good I think...

In the same way, you can see if you can read the disk by typing:

 

fdisk -l /dev/sdX

 

and

dd if=/dev/sdX count=1 | od -c

When I try dd if=/dev/sdX count=1 | od -c

 

root@Tower:~# dd if=/dev/sda count=1 | od -c

dd: reading `/dev/sda': Input/output error

0+0 records in

0+0 records out

0000000

0 bytes (0 B) copied, 9.9292e-05 s, 0.0 kB/s

 

For the other command I always get i permission denied. I'm probably doing something wrong...

Ok. Removed the drive with the error and now I can run preclear without any problems for the remaining 2 drives...

Sounds like you had a drive that died.

 

Strange thing is. When I put in my other PC. Do format. Nothing is really wrong with it...

Then either it is incompatible with the disk controller (not really ever seen that) or, it is power or cabling related.  Voltage too low, too much noise, etc...

I'm not sure. I use the same cable for my other disc and no problems with these now. I have tried to use other cables and I still had the same problem. At the moment I'm using the same cable and doing a preclear. When this is done for the 2 disc's I'm going to try to use the disc again. See what the result is..  Keep u informed...
