Cache Drive Swap Insanity!

Go to solution Solved by JorgeB,

Time for the crazy question of the morning. On my Unraid server, I gone through the process of changing my Samsung 970 EVO 1TB drives for Sumsung 980 Pro 2TB drives. I changed my cache drives while the machine and unraid recognized then new drives, the GUI allowed me to switch them to the new drives and even format them, but on reboot, it does not remember the drives. Any idea what is happening there? My current version of Unraid is 6.11.5.


When I reboot the drives are still there, but the GUI treats them as if they are new drives (like I swapped them a second time) and tells me these are the wrong drives (it is looking for the 1TB drives). I have to go into maintenance mode and clear them and then boot back into regular mode and then it allows me to format them again and does the same thing “working” until next reboot. It’s like what ever config file tells unraid that now these are supposed to be the cache drives is not saving the new drive info.


HELP!!! Thanks in advance!
