Disk is Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout after upgrading unraid version

I have a server set up with 5 drives: 2 parity and 3 data, all 8tb.  I recently upgraded from version 6.7 to to 6.8.3. When the server came back up one of my drives, disk 3, said Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout.  To be honest, I can't say for sure what exact steps I took after this:

I believe I tried just rebooting the server.  When the array was started, it was not emulating that drive, it just acted as if it was not there (the files on it were unaccessable and the available space was reduced by 8tb.)  I stopped the array, clicked on disk 3 to remove it from the array (probably a mistake?).  I added it back to the array and it started to rebuild parity.  Now I was able to start the array, it was rebuilding, and the contents of disk 3 were being emulated, so it was useable for now.  After a day or so, I noticed that the parity rebuild hadn't budged past a certain point.  I also began to have some weird issues like the webgui terminal and the logging pop up window not displaying anything.  I checked top and my CPU usage was very low, which was odd because I figured it should be at 100% from the rebuild.  I rebooted my the server and now the drive is still unmountable but I cannot start the array (emulated) if that drive is not selected, there is a message next to "start" that says a disk is missing.  I've tried moving the drive from the raid card that it's been attached to to the motherboard in case it was a hardware problem.  I ran the xfs repair utility and it didn't appear to show any kind of errors:

When I view the disk log, I get this error in there: emhttpd: error: ckmbr, 2115: No such file or directory (2): open: /dev/sdb1

Indeed I have no sdb1, just sdb.

 

I'm not sure what to do at this point.  I am going to grab another drive to use to replace it or to keep as a backup if this drive is usable, but is the data from that drive just gone now or do you think it is still recoverable from the parity?  Not a huge deal because most of it is backed up elsewhere.

Diagnostics attached.


Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I suspect the problem is controller related, and I would recommend replacing that rockeraid with a recommended controller.

 

If you unassing disk3 and start the array the emulated disk should mount correctly, then you'll need to rebuild, ideally on a new controller.

I did suspect that, but I moved disk 3 to the motherboard and it still is unmountable. 

I cannot start the array after I remove disk 3 from it, it just says a disk is missing and the start button is disabled.

That's expected, it will need to be rebuilt.

There's should be a check mark to allow the array to start with a missing disk.

I see that RocketRaid 2300 is on the list of working controllers.

It is, but it uses the same driver as the SASLP/SAS2LP, and those have several issues with latest Unraid releases, and it's usually similar, they were working great before until they don't anymore.

Well I'm a dummy and completely missed that check box :)  I have the array back up now. 

 

How can I rebuild the disk that has the error?  What's the proper procedure for that?
