Tips & Tricks / Re: Adding drives with data - to a Hyper-V Flexraid
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:30:56 pm »
That should work just fine if the end result is a physical RDM as explained here:

I don't run Hyper-V to tell you conclusively if it is or not.
If Hyper-V hands you virtual RDMs (as opposed to physical), it will work but you will not be able to pull SMART information out of those disks.

It will be best to delete the current configuration, regain control of all your disks, create a new configuration with your new desired layout, and compute parity anew.

Which version are you on?
Is the Web UI still accessible when this happens?

Please check the logs for potential clues.

Great that you are back on track.

You can start the tRAID array with a smaller set of disks and expand as you go. See:
Note however that, rather than doing many RAID Expansions, it will be simpler to migrate your data unprotected to individual drives first and then create the tRAID array using those drives in one go. Basically, RAID Expansions/Contractions have a certain risk in all RAID systems. So, you want to minimize how often you do them.

You can request for your trial to be extended by emailing sales at flexraid dot com. You will need to provide your trial ID in the email. The trial ID is provided to you in the message when a trial request is denied on the Web UI.

tRAID on Windows / Re: How do I change the log level?
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:09:24 pm »
In the Web UI, select to edit the host and you will see the option to set the log level for the host.
It is likely set to TRACE. Change it to WARN or ERROR.

You can make those changes without having to stop and restart anything.

Hey, sent you an email.

As others have stated, more clarity is needed on your current tRAID setup. As always, screenshoots will provide a lot of details.
1. try providing screenshots of your current tRAID configuration.
2. focus on what specifically isn't working on the tRAID side (leave your previous hardware issues out)

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.

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  :-[
Check the official site as a new build has been pushed out a couple of months back.
Try to subscribe to if you aren't getting new release notifications.

Try rebuilding the parity anew.

Will a current tRAID setup import into the new FlexRAID or will you have to redo the array setup?
Existing tRAID arrays will require no migration.

Milestone Update
The I/O mechanics port is done. This was 60% of the entire RAID-F porting effort! :)

Snapshot RAID / Re: Invalid state - Unexpected EOF on 001971.flxr

Ah, ok if it is a known bug. I would not call it normal, but if there is not fix for it, then it is what it is.

Rebuild the parity anew if you are not going to update.
