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?

I've followed the instructions on http://wiki.flexraid.com/2012/03/25/how-do-i-add-my-drive-back-to-the-pool-after-re-installing-my-os/

When I "Do NOT Restore, just swap out the drives" it does swap them, but it shows in the pool as having nearly 100% free space instead of the correct amount. This is freaking me out because I don't want my data to be accidentally deleted with no hope of restoration.

Any ideas? The pool still says my swapped drives have 100% free space after a reboot, but I've confirmed my data is still there (for now).

General Discussion / Re: Best shceduled jobs configuration for tRaid

Just switched to windows 10 and traid for my server. What is best configuration for scheduled jobs?
Verify
Verify+
Verify Sync

Verify
Use it only for troubleshooting. It stops at the first error.

Verify+
Use first setting up the RAID to verify initial integrity and then monthly or so to verify RAID integrity.

Verify Sync
Same as above to blindly keep the parity data up to date.

Verify+ and Verify & Sync scan the entire array and collect data on blocks that are out of sync. Later, using the Forensic plugin, you can analyze for what data is affected. In the case of Verify+, you have the option to decide whether to recover or override the parity. With Verify & Sync, the parity is automatically updated and there is nothing else to do than being aware of what data was potentially affected.

So, choosing between Verify+ and Verify & Sync is mostly a user preference depending on how they want to deal with the upkeep of the array.

Snapshot RAID / How to stop running update?
« Last post by weedenbc on August 14, 2017, 08:09:11 am »
I have a scheduled update that is still running and would like to stop it, but can't find a way to do so.

Here's the situation. I'm moving my stuff to a new NAS, and so in the process I've already modified a bunch of media files. There was an auto-scheduled update that started a midnight, and is still running at 0900 the next morning because of all the changes.

However, I just tried to move several other folders to the new NAS, and discovered that all the files got dropped during the move (no idea why). My hope is that I can restore those files and get them back, but of course the update is still running and might "update the parity for those files. I'd like to stop it before it does.

Help?
