Strange Preclear Errors

This is after a reboot with autostart disabled,

That seems correct.

Downloaded the preclear plugin and have just kicked it off

Is it letting you preclear the disk? If so that would seem to indicate preclear didn't really consider it part of the array, though I don't know if that is really correct and I doubt preclear has ever been tried in this scenario.


And I don't know whether unRAID is going to still want to clear it now that it thinks it should.


Can you unassign the disk?

I had to unassign it so that preclear could see it, so although it wasn't actively part of the array yet, it seems like it provisionally was until the clear had completed.



Unassignning it had no effect on the array though, so it didnt cause any issues.

Yeah I have, it's unassigned and preclearing as I type.


The array displays and functions just as it did before I installed the drive

After a bit of messing about it looks like those errors may have been due to a dodgy sas cable. Thanks to those that helped.
