Trying to upgrade to dual-parity, but WebGUI is failing me

btw, if having dual-parity means that unRAID can recover from dual disk failures, does that then mean that one could upgrade two drives at once, to larger drives? (accepting the greater risk, as there would be trouble if a third disk failed during the upgrade of the two drives)

Exactly correct.

huh, that's pretty sweet during times like I am about to go through...I wasn't even thinking about that before I upgraded to dual-parity.
thanks for confirming, jonthanm!

And just to ask the same question for the 4th or 5th time:

what would be the terminal methods for doing a clean stop array, and a New Config.

Maybe I wasn't clear before, there isn't one, at least not that I know of, there was once in the v4 days (initconfig), but it was removed during v5 when we got the New Config button.

ah, ok, thanks for letting me know...too bad...seems like an important function to control independent of the WebGUI to recover from situations such as the one I find myself in...when the WebGUI starts acting up like this...still gonna have to try to figure out what is going wrong with the GUI when I'm done with this process...or maybe even during.

You’re right, I forgot to try that before starting the parity rebuild...will try that over the weekend.
