HDDs get dropped from the array

Greetings all,


I currently have the problem that some of my HDDs get dropped from the array and are listed in unassigend devices.

I thought it might be a SATA-cable problem at first and changed the cables of these HDDs, but the got dropped again.


I attached the diagnostics and hope that you guys can shed some light on this. I'm rather  scared that my server is dying on me😰




So I just checked my array devices list and the devices are still listed there but also in unassigned list?

I attached two screenshots, in those the dropped disks are listed in the array devices list but also in the unassigned devices list with different device identifications (sdX).

So should I do any preparations before pluggin in the HDDs in a different controller? Or should I just shutdown the server and plug them in another SATA slot (coming from the board controller, not the Marvell controller of course)?

Thank you @johnnie.black for your fast response! Just plugged the HDDs in the onboard controller and see how it goes from now on.

Guess sooner or later I will have to invest in a proper HBA controller.
