General Discussion / Re: Is this the longest he's been gone?

ok i guess things are fine.  I'm always concerned about that day in the future when I may have to use another product.  But if this is just his usual thing, I suppose everything is fine?

I don't think so.  I believe he was MIA for nearly a year at least once, but I could certainly be wrong.  This was way back in the openegg.org days, so my memory could be quite fuzzy.

I was wondering if this is the longest Brahim has gone without a trace?

Does your website make out seamlessly and requires no customization anything more.

General Discussion / Re: Registering an offline disk results in error
« Last post by adridolf on December 04, 2018, 03:56:10 pm »
During a complicated disk restore, I'm facing a similar problem as in this very old thread:
If I set the target disk to restore to offline, I get similar errors as in the initial post.
If I set the target disk to restore to online, Rebuild seems to work (at least it started with reasonable speed and without errors).

The question:
How can bring a disk offline "with tRaid"? At the moment, I'm not really sure whether my OS will interfere with the disk being restored while in online state ...

News and Updates / Business Continuity VS Disaster Recovery – Know the Difference
« Last post by pkv2266 on November 29, 2018, 02:31:53 am »
Running a successful business isn’t just about developing quality products and determining the highest performing marketing tactics. It’s also about planning for unforeseen circumstances which could not only put the business on hold temporarily but could completely wipe a business out for good. Business continuity and disaster recovery plans are used by businesses to prevent this from happening, by establishing strategies and backup maneuvers in advance. That way, when disaster strikes, your business is ready, and your team knows exactly what they should do.

Although many people are under the misconception that BCP and DRP are one in the same, they are entirely different. Smart business practitioners understand these differences and realize that they need both kinds of plans in place to adequately safeguard their business. This article will explain the differences between the two, and outline some key insights when it comes to developing a set of plans that will ensure success and security for you and your business.

OK that's what I thought. Thanks for the answer.

It's still strange that there's absolutely no warning while setting this up. Although I probably won't be going with flexRAID over an open source solution, it's nice to learn how these different things work.

This may help:  http://wiki.flexraid.com/2013/06/17/using-a-dru-that-is-larger-than-the-ppu-in-transparent-raid/

That should make it crystal clear that your RAID is not set up properly (because you have DRUs large than your PPU), which means that the "extra" 5GB of data on each of those 15GB drives is not protected.  For complete protection, either shrink the 15GB DRUs to 10GB or less or increase the PPU to 15GB or more.

Fair enough to the exacts not being disclosed.

The reason I'm confused by parity is mainly because the array screenshotted does not give any errors. Also, when I run df on the server to see the disk usage/free of all the disks, I see this for the mounted array.

Code: [Select]
root@flexraid-test:~# df -h /media/traid1/ /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/*
Filesystem                Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
FlexRAIDFS                 78G   74G  1.3G  99% /media/traid1
/dev/traid-1000000002-v1  9.8G  8.8G  451M  96% /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/sdb
/dev/traid-1000000004-v1  9.8G  8.9G  361M  97% /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/sdc
/dev/traid-1000000005-v1   15G   14G  291M  98% /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/sdd
/dev/traid-1000000006-v1   15G   14G   83M 100% /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/sde
/dev/traid-1000000007-v1   15G   14G   87M 100% /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/sdf
/dev/traid-1000000003-v1   15G   15G     0 100% /mnt/traid/traid1/disks/sdg

Is that capacity a lie? Is all the data safe with a 10GB parity drive?
