Trying to add an eSata sidecar, having difficulties...


Recommended Posts

all right, the journey into 4k continues.. now need more space :)


I bought the following -


Startech 2 port eSata 6gb/s PCI-E controller PEXESAT32

Mediasonic ProBox HF2-SU3S2 4 Bay 3.5” SATA HDD Enclosure – USB 3.0 & eSATA/SATA 3 6.0Gbps


I have seen that people have uses the Startech before without issue.


So I popped in 4x2tb drives I had from another server that since migrated to 4tb and hooked it all up.

The ProBox (apparently) is in eSata mode

the drives are being seen (apparently) by the box during startup (see it tick off the activity lights)


however, it's a no show in Unraid.

No 'un assigned devices' (they were actuve unraid drives)

No drives to assign to slots when the array is stopped



THis time its above my pay grade to fiture this one out, is the card even being seen?

Diagnostics file attached. Halp?
