UnRecoverable RAID initialization error at meta builder!
« on: December 13, 2012, 01:43:02 pm »
Realtime RAID Initialization failed twice: After the first failure, I picked the Resume Initialization option, which simply erased the PPU Parity drive and restarted the initialization.

   RealTime RAID initial parity success!

Resume Initialization...Last Chance! All PPU Drives will now be erased!

For whatever reason it is failing at creating the filesystem databases.
Are you in Cruise Control or Expert mode?

If Expert, make sure the PPU has enough free space for the database files.

Cruise Control mode. Using 10 identical Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB drives - 8 Data, 1 (or 2) Parity. Decided to go back to Snapshot RAID until Realtime RAID is ready for prime time, especially since RT currently only allows a single Parity Drive.
