Note: appended info -

  • RAIDxpert log
  • System details

I've been running a RAID5 (3xSamsung-1TB) 2TB array for ~2 years.  About every 6 months it requires a rebuild.

Yesterday, it had a similar failure, but 67% of the way through the rebuild it failed again (see below) and I can't get it to either retry on that disk or accept a replacement drive.

  • The Rebuild tab is dark/disabled.
  • The replacement drive was, today, entered as an alternate drive for that array (it's on the same controller port)
  • I can find NOTHING that will force a rebuild, or even to acknowledge that drive as part of the array (even though it's been added as a spare for it)

At this moment, the replacement drive shows as a Dedicated  Spare to that RAID5 array, but I've found nothing that will rebuild to it.  It should have displayed as "assigned LD 1-01"

What can I do!  Where should I have found the proper instructions for this?

Thanks!

Hi,

Do you have a solution yet?   I am having the same problem, my configuration is as follows:

Asus M4A87TD EVO with AMD Athlon II X4 630 CPU, 4 gig RAM

4x2T Hitachi drives

I had it set up as raid 5 and it was running for 2 years, until 3rd drive went bad, RAIDXpert tried to rebuild the raid but stop at 65% then went offline. I got a fresh new 2T Hitachi drive and replaced it, in RAIDXpert, it shows that the drive is good, but nothing happens, rebuild is greyed out, it just shows offline, nothing can be done to it, any idea? Or anyone can help?

I've found ZERO help.  AMD doesn't seem to give a damn about helping, nor have any others here or elsewhere had useful advice.  If you find a solution, please post here.

 

This has left me uninterested in future AMD chipset "features" like RAID.
