RAID-F on Linux / Single drive missing from Drive Manager
« Last post by Aderalia on February 19, 2018, 11:58:34 pm »
i just installed RAID-F in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and it seems to work, sort of.
All my 5 of my six drives show up just fine, however the last one is missing... The five ones that show have existing data on them (they come out of a diffrent machine), the last one however is empty and suppoesed to be my parity, its also the only one formated on this system.

Owner of all the drives that do show up is root, however the group "users" also has both read and write permission.
The missing one has diffrent permissions (owner is my user, and there is no "users" group to selevt in dropdown menu...

How do i set the permissions in a way FlexRaid can work with all drives?

Would it be smarter to not have root be the owner of my drives?

I am in the same boat as FlyingShawn as far as the size of the RAID and time it takes to process.  Once One comes out, I will look into what it will take to switch over from F-RAID too.  I would be more concerned, but I now (finally) have a full online backup of everything.  So, I disabled the actual backup and validation and just using the pooling for now....until One comes out. 
Snapshot RAID / Error: Storage Pool handler initialization failure
« Last post by meltek on February 18, 2018, 06:17:18 pm »
Hi All,

I recently re-imaged my machine with windows server 2016 and re-installed Flexraid however getting the following error even after recreating my RAID.

I have tried the following
- Running UserMode CMD
- Re-installing FlexRAID
- Changing to fixed instead of removable by typing 'false' in removable property
- Restarted after each step

FlexRAID™ on Windows / Re: Flexraid F won't update. Java Out of memory error

I deleted the config and started over from scratch as I didn't know what a rebuild meant. That fixed it.

I have not seen the other posts.  So, this may have already been mentioned.  Try contacting your ISP to ensure the port is not blocked for you.  You wouldn't think it'd be the case since it's the default port for email software also, but I have seen it done by a provider before. 
General Discussion / Problems with Email notifications with RAID-F set up
« Last post by Twisty on February 18, 2018, 04:20:39 am »

Seen a few posts relating to email notification issues, but none have managed to hep me solve my particular difficulty.
I'm attempting to set up notifications and when I saved and then 'Verify' the settings I get the error that other users are reporting:

org.apache.commons.mail.EmailException: Sending the email to the following server failed :

I've tried both SSL and TLS (and both together), but still nothing.

I'm using 2 factor, application specific password with iCloud mail. Here are my settings:

Active - tick
SMART - tick
SSL or TLS - tried both and none
Host -
Port - tried 25, 465 & 587
Password - application specific password from Apple
Sender -
Recipients -
CC - blank
BCC - blank
Options - all ticked for 'On success' and 'On failure'

Hope someone can help.

RAID-F handles high files count just fine.
Why wouldn't there be a way to test on a full scale? Or are you over-thinking it?
Just quick-format the parity drive, setup RAID-F, build parity, and see how it works. If it does not work for your setup, just uninstall and quick format the parity and you are on your way.

Thanks for your answer Brahim :)

I think there will be no way around testing on full scale :( However SnapRAID coundt handle my file count. My biggest data drive is 6 TB my entire setup is 2*6TB + 3*4 TB + 1*3TB as data drive and one 8TB as parity, yet SnapRAID told me i need another 1,7 TB for parity, i was told thats because of my high filecount. And i realy like to have silent Error detection and repair, so tRAID wouldnt be working for me...

You will do best to trial RAID-F or tRAID and see how they each work out for you. It is easy to get your data back if not sold on either (no data migration needed).
Both can handle millions of files just fine. So, give it a go and see how things perform for your system first hand.
I only meant flexraid-f being EOL, as it hadn't had any updates for 3+ years

Thanks for that link I had not seen that post, but given the severity of the security issues with meltdown and spector I cant run this server without the security updates so will have to use something else for now  :-[
