RAID ext3 missing disk from ReadyNAS NV+

Post by jn441 » Thu May 24, 2018 1:59 am

I had a disk fail on a RAID5, and then simultaneously one of the good remaining disks fell out of the array. Apparently it's a known issue with this model of drive. I confirmed all the disks are good.

I connected all three remaining disks via SATA. I have tried adding the volumes to a new array and getting RStudio to autodetect it (even tried including a "missing disk") but I haven't really had any luck. This is XRAID and ext3

I can see the original c array, but when I open the LVM components tab I can't choose the volume that fell out of the array. I can't figure out how to get this disk back in there.

The dropdown in the middle doesn't let me choose the volume I want:

We need some more information to investigate the problem. We need the following:
System info: Tools -> Save system info. There will be two files.
A screen shot of the Drives panel, and list of disks that are from the RAID, and the disk that you cannot find in the dropdown menu.
Please zip them and send to raptorbck (at) gmail (dot) com .
This information will not contain any data, only the information about your system hardware and disk partitioning.

We've received it, and I've sent all the data to our developers.

Is there anything I should try (editing the disk's GUID etc) or should I wait for a developer response
