Array Starting Mounting disks


Go to solution Solved by JorgeB,

Recommended Posts

I have started a new conifg to create a new array with new drives, now when I start the array it hangs on  Array Starting Mounting disks.

 

I can start the array in maintenance mode, but it never mounts.  How long should it take to mount?  How else can I troubleshoot this?

 

Thanks

Nick

Have you formatted the drives (the option near the array Start button).  Until the drives have been formatted while in the array it is normal for them to be unmountable as at that point they have no file system.

I don't have the option to format

Format option is only available after array start, but the problem is the pool, you are running into a known issue, reboot first, then click the first pool device and change the fs from auto to the one you plan to use, btrfs or zfs, then start array.

@JorgeB thank you so much, that did the trick. Formatting the array now.
