News and Updates / Re: Transparent RAID (tRAID) Version 1.1 Preview release
« Last post by harakiri on August 22, 2017, 01:14:26 pm »
Hi Brahim,
please keep us more informated. Actually I have no good feeling about the future. My tRAID running on a 2012 R2 but my hardware must be changed next year and there I have a decision for what I want to choose my storage software.  I want to migrate my data to a Server 2016, but if I have the feeling that tRAID is dead, I will make a Raid1 if there isn't any new news :( In the past I loved your software.

So PLEASE keep us more up2date or give a roadmap. The latest untested preview from tRAID is from 2017-01-28 :(

Snapshot RAID / Deleted Files Simulating Multiple Drive Failure
« Last post by Watto on August 21, 2017, 11:18:31 pm »
Hey Guys,

So it seems as though I've managed to simulate multiple drive failure by deleting files and then failing to update before a drive crashed. I really needed to pay more attention to the scheduled maintenance :(

DRU1 is showing as missing
DRU2,3,4 are showing as healthy
PPU1 is showing as healthy

When I try swapping out the drives it fails during pre-validation with the message:

"Error message: Too many failed devices! Failed=2 - Number of devices supported to be restored at a time: 1"

The log file is attached, any thoughts on how I might be able to achieve even a partial restore would be much appreciated.

I tried to move my drives also to a new system and i also did not get anywhere.

Sales said that i did way to many changes on hardware level but they could never tell me what it was that i changed.
So i am still running the same hardware after 3 years.

So my opinion is good luck i hope you come right because sales are some of the worst i have ever seen and we all say MS is bad..

General Discussion / FlexRAID 2.1 Upgrade Paths?
« Last post by TheCodeMan on August 16, 2017, 06:32:05 pm »
I am currently running five FlexRAID 2.1 setups, with Snapshot 1.1 and Storage Pool 2.0. I am running these on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard. I am planning to move forward with some system upgrades and I plan to do in place upgrades on all, moving from Server 2008 R2 to Server 2012, and finally upgrade to 2016 Standard Server.

I would like to know if the version of FlexRAID that I am currently using will likely make the transition to the new OS ok?

Secondly, what is my upgrade path if I wish to move over to tRAID? Would I be eligible for any kind of discount?

Looks like I might have fixed it by adding the Flexraid mount points manually to match the old ones. Very tedious and completely unintuitive but here we are.

Tried following Brahim's instructions on another thread and continue adding all the drives ignoring this error then do a quick validate, but it didn't work:

Really stuck for ideas here.  Should I manually drop all the old mounts via Disk Manager?

Just noticed the Parity drive should be 3.64 TB - pretty certain I swapped in the right drive (I only have 3 x 1.82 TB drives and you can see there's 2 unpooled)

I also only have 2 x 3.64 TB drives, with only 1 remaining unpooled. Something really fishy is going on?
