Multiple Errors

Yes, that's expected now, when the rebuild finishes try xfs_repair on both, but like mentioned you'll likely need to use a file recovery util to recover anything.

 

P.S. Unrelated, but the SSD needs a new SATA cable.

Ok, I'll give that a shot when the rebuild is done and post an update to this thread. Thanks again for all the help you and Trurl have given me.

I've already replaced that cable a few times. Again I'm thinking that the sata ports on my motherboard going bad is what causing these issues to occur in the first place. That SSD and cable are brand new.

Should I go a head with the XFS_Repair? 

Yes, xfs_repair will likely need to search for a secondary superblock, let it run, it can take some time.

Honestly I'm not worried about recovering data at this point. I really just want to get the array back to stable working order. I have backups of important files and everything else can be re-downloaded. Should I just go ahead and format the drives and try adding them back to the array?

You must format the drives while they are still in the array. Stop the array, click on the drive to get to its page and change its filesystem. When you start the array it will be reformatted to the new filesystem. Repeat to get it back to the original filesystem. You can do both drives at the same time.

It should mount now, the question is, will there be any data there? Start the array and check.

There is a ton of folders in the lost+found folder on that disk. Some of them look like they have good data, some are empty and some have files with random numbers as names. Not even sure what to do with all this. I don't know what the file structure was on the drive before it failed so I'm not sure how to go about restoring this data.

So disk 4 keeps failing to allow writes. I've rerun the xfs_repair a few times which temporarily fixes it but it just goes right back to "Unable to write to disk" error. Not sure if this means that drive is failed and needs to be replaced or what. I'm still waiting on new sata cables which should be on Friday.

I'm at my wits end with this server. I've replaced all the sata cables and the motherboard now and I'm still getting drives failing and com errors. Disk 4 keeps showing up as Unmountable and Disk 3 is now showing a red X. I really don't know what to do at this point. I'm ready to just trash the whole thing and start over.

Diags are after rebooting, so not much info, try running xfs_repair again on disk4, but it appears there's a missing or damaged superblock, that's unusual.

XFS repair finished. I really don't understand what could be causing all these errors. I get that disk 4 is corrupt but how would that affect the other disks in the array. Why to do other disks randomly go red X? How do I get back to the point that it's stable? I could replace disk 4 completely but will that solve the other issues that keep recurring?

Filesystem corruption and disabled disks are two completely different things, did you re-format the disk?

There's recurring filesystem corruption, I suggest you copy any data there to other disk(s) and re-format the disk.

I did reformat once and it keeps going back to Unmountable. I did it again though we'll see if it sticks. Maybe I should just replace the drive and be done with it? How do I troubleshoot drives disabling? First it was the parity drive and now disk 3, I've gone through doing a New Config but it's happened three times now.
