Server Parity Error


Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

My server was acting really slowly a few days ago. I chose to run a parity check and selected the write to parity option. It took a few days and after the check it listed some 20k errors. I was in shock as my server normally never has any parity issues. I deselected the "write corrections to parity" option and ran the check again. When I got home today my server was frozen and the fans were on 100%. Ping nor SSH could reach the server. Monitor wasn't posting. So I pushed the power button and waiting for a good 20 min and it never rebooted. So I hard reset it. On boot, I got a notification that my array was good and there were 0 errors. However, my parity disk is somehow disabled. I've shut the server down and checked all the SATA cables, but non are loose or bad. I've since then rebooted and I am having the same issue. Any ideas on what it could be? The parity drive has only been powered on for about 1 year and it's never given me an issue. The s.m.a.r.t data says it's fine ( I know that isn't much to go off of ) So I don't know if this is a bug or maybe my parity really has bit the dust. let me know what you guys think. I have posted the most recent diagnostics.

Why would you wipe it (whatever that means)? Rebuild is going to overwrite every bit of it.


To rebuild to the same disk (whether parity or data):


Stop array

Unassign disk

Start array with disk unassigned

Stop array

Reassign disk

Start array to rebuild
