Missing Data after attempt at drive replacement

Go to solution Solved by itimpi,

Looking to get some help before I mess things up more than I probably already did.  I thought drive replacement was going to be easier than I came across.  I will attempt to describe what I have already done and what I'm trying to fix.

I had a data drive fail and ordered multiple new drives that were larger than the previous parity drive.  Previous drive setup was 1 parity, disk 1 of data failed and then disk 2.

I believe I did a New Config and currently have one of the new drives in the parity slot, a new drive in the first data slot showing xfs and seems to be running, a new drive stating "Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout" in the second disk slot and the old parity drive in the 3rd data slot stating "Unmountable: Unsupported or no file system."  Cache drives unchanged.  Old disk 2 is currently not connected to the system.

It seems at though it is remembering some of the shares, but none of the data is in them.

Am I past the point of saving the old data after a new parity was built?  Can I save files from the old disk 2 and move them somehow?  I would appreciate any guidance you all can provide.

Thank you!

Old parity is now unmountable in disk3, old disk1 failed. Old disk2 should be fine but is currently not attached to the system. 

I’m pretty sure I did a new config in order to get the new parity drive setup.  Likely was a mistake as I’m finding out.  Just looking to see what I should be able to recover at this point.


Thank you for your help

So I plugged in the previously thought to have failed old disk1 and ran the smart test and it says passed.  I ordered more cables so I can plug all the drives in and then see what happens.  Is there a process I should do like make them unassigned and then try to look and see what files are on before I add them to the array?  I appreciate everyones help so far.
