Hello,

 

I am building my first unraid 4.7 machine, 10 2tb disks to start (1 being the parity).

I just assigned each disk but when I go back to the main screen the disk 1 and disk 2 are showing 2 disks each

I am not sure why? I think these may be 2 disks I used previously to test, could something have not been cleared out from before?

 

disk 1 S/N should end in NPR

disk 2 S/N should end in TLS

disk 3 S/N should end in 3NQ

 

per my assignments.

 

any help is greatly appreciated. I have attached screen snapshots for the main screen and 1 for when I click on one of the disks from the main screen

 

thanks!

You cannot just move the drives around like you have when inserting a new disk, or rather not without setting a new initial disk configuration.

 

On 4.7 you must stop the array and then

log in via telnet, or on the system console and type

initconfig

and then respond with "Yes"  (with a capital "Y", lower case "es")

 

typing that will IMMEDIATELY INVALIDATE PARITY and set a new initial disk configuration.

When you then start the array a new initial parity calculation will begin based on the new disk configuration.
