I am trying to setup a RPI3 based OMV NAS for a friend. His needs are very basic. He wants to backup pic from his phone whenever his phone runs out of space. The RPI is connected wire connected to the router. Speeds hit 11.5 MB/s and its sufficient to meet my friends need.
Two 320 GB Hitachi (HDT725032VLA380)hard disks are connected. They are inside a 2 bay USB case (a dual bay USB 3.0 case Ultra U12-43846).
I have one user on the NAS and on 320 GB HDD is exposed as a SMB/CIFS share.
Problem statement: The primary hard disk won't spind down after an access by SMB/CIFS user. But other hdd seems to be going into spindown.
If I reboot and have no activity then both HDDs will spindown. But SMB/CIFS access will wake up drive and then after that that HDD will never spindown.
Anyidea why the spindown is prevented?
Note: SMART monitoring is enabled. But disabling it makes no difference.
