Hey guys,

 

I'm getting disk erros on my parity disk. All disks i have a pretty old by now and have ben running a long time. I'm suspecting they will need to be replaced in the near future, but i hope there is another way to fix these errors?

Running on v6.6.6

Attached smart report from the disk with errors.

Errors were a disk problem, it appears to be failing, you can confirm with an extended SMART test.

It should take 6 or 7 Hours, if there's no disk activity.

Still ongoing with SMART extended self-test. It's the parity disk but i think it's going to need replacement if it takes this long =/

That's an extremely long time, is the disk being heavily used other than the SMART test? If not might as well replace the disk now.

Ordered a new disk. Should arrive todat. Is it correct that replacing a parity disk is still this: https://wiki.unraid.net/The_parity_swap_procedure

 

1.      Stop the array (if it's started)

2.      Unassign the old drive (if it's still assigned)

3.      Start the array (put a check in the Yes I want to do this checkbox if it appears (older versions: Yes, I'm sure))

4.      Stop the array again

5.      Power down

6.      [ Optional ] Pull the old drive

7.      Install the new drive

8.      Power on

9.      Stop the array

10.  Unassign the parity drive

11.  Assign the new drive in the parity slot

12.  Assign the old parity drive in the slot of the old data drive being replaced

13.  Go to the Main -> Array Operation section

14.  Put a check in the Yes I want to do this checkbox (older versions: Yes, I'm sure), and click the Copy button

15.  Put a check in the Yes I want to do this checkbox (older versions: Yes, I'm sure), and click the Start button

If you just want to replace the parity disk, it is much simpler

  1. Power down the system
  2. Replace the existing parity disk with the new disk
  3. Start the system
  4. On the Main page: assign the new disk as parity
  5. Start the array and let the parity rebuild
