Formatting Problem


Phlegm

Recommended Posts

 

I am setting up a new UnRAID server and running into a issue formatting the disks

 

I am using a fresh copy of v4.7

 

I using WD WD20EARS 2TB SATA hard drives

 

I am reusing hard drives from another UnRAID. I took each drive and wiped them off using WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics tool. I wrote zeros on the drive and then formatted them with NTFS

 

I had no problems bring up UnRAID. booted with no problems. UnRAID sees all the drives. No configuration issues. Everything is default.

 

UnRAID sees all the drives as Unformatted. I click on the ....

 

"Format will create a file system in all Unformatted disks, discarding all data currently on those disks."

I check the        "I'm sure I want to do this"  box and UnRAID says it is formatting the array"

 

After about 10 minutes or if I check refresh UnRAID will see all the disk as Unformatted again. It never formats.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks

Hello again,

 

Swapped out the bad disk. Now I do not see see the button to reset the configuration for the array. I know in the past version there was a way to reset it to a new configuration. I included a screen print of the main page. I also do not see it anywhere else.

 

New syslog file is also attached.

 

Thanks for your help.
