    Adaptec 8805 can't force on volume

    Okay, Somebody was playing with the power on the server. I have a RAID5 80 TB array whose members show as optimal but the logic volume shows as failed. The drives are fine because I can read their info (temperature for example), and I don't expect there to be much of any data loss. I tried to...

    Dell H830 SAS RAID and Dell PowerVault MD1200

    I have a Dell R710 home server with a Dell PERC H830 SAS RAID adapter in it. I'm looking to add an MD1200 to my collection and trying to figure out whether it will work. I'm not concerned if it's supported. I only want to know if it will work at all. First off, Dell says the H830 won't work...

    Linux based FreeNAS alternatives

    Poking around the internet looking for a NAS Distro to try. I was planning on going to FreeNAS Corral since it had Docker Integration...but we know how that went :( Seems like most people have gone to ZFS historically because it was more stable than BTRFS, but is that still the case today...

    Adaptec RAID Can't Detect Sunrich S-331 (Marvell 9235 )

    So, I've kinda given up on Windows Storage Spaces, but now I'm having trouble with interfacing my RAID card and backplane. So, I got an Adaptec 8805 RAID card (latest firmware) that I've pulled from a working system. When I hook up the SATA ports to the a Sunrich S-331 backplane (Marvell 9235...

    SW or HW RAID6?

    Reading Software vs hardware RAID performance and cache usage confuses me. Today i'm running Linux md RAID10 with 4 x Hitachi 4TB NAS drives. As i only have 8TB avaiable space, i'm planning for the future and RAID6 based on 5x 6TB disks seems good to me space wise. I will then be able to get...

    JBOD vs Enclosure

    OK, I see all the major players, renaming their JBODs to Enclosures (I think this started with HP). To me this seems a little odd since I always felt a JBOD was just what it implied, Just a Bunch Of Disks and an Enclosure was synonymous with chassis. To me a disk enclosure could mean either a...
