Cache Drive seems to have gone Read-Only

7 posts in this topic Last Reply

Began receiving docker errors and was unable to correct them, so I rebooted my server,  now I am receiving "Cache" is read-only.

 

There is plenty of space on the cache drive, and data is readable but it is read-only.   I can't seem to figure out why it went read-only or how to correct.  Scrub/Balance cancels due to the RO status.

Cache filesystem is corrupt, you'll need to backup and reformat, corruption could be the result of an unclean shutdown or some controller/device write cache issue, also good idea to update the LSI firmware.

Hi Johnnie,

 

You recommended updating the LSI firmware once before,   I do not have access to a windows desktop for the flashing, and have not been able to find a Linux / Unraid way to flash them.   If you have any insight on that, or can point me in the direction, I would love to update them.    Booting to Live CD versions failed also.

 

Is everything on the cache dead or can I safely copy whats on it off?

You can boot and flash it with a DOS flash drive.

You won't known until you try, any corrupt data will generate an i/o error during normal copy, everything copied without error you can assume it's good.

The drive was corrupted beyond recovery for 90% of the data. I have now formatted the drive, checked it with pre-zero and the drive is healthy.  I have reused it as my cache drive now. 

 

I am looking for the LSI flash files again and will make a DOS 6.22 / FreeDOS boot drive and try to update the cards.  

 

Do I need to update the expanders or just the two PCIe Cards.

I was able to find the linux bash files - I stopped my array and was able to flash both 9300-8i cards to  Firmware Version 16.00.10.00.

 

I have not touched the expanders - I am not sure how.

There's also an update but probably best to leave them alone for now.
