RAID failure

  • Goodnight! I need a hellp, in Openmediavault version 6.0.24 X64. When creating the RAID 1 (Mirror) and performing the File Systems configuration and the samba service, everything 100% working without problems. When removing a disk from the machine, the interface does not list the created RAID, I have no access to the files that were added to the disks in RAID. any tips on how to configure RAID 1 in the tool so that, if any disk fails, access to files continues

    That is the expected behaviour, OMV uses mdadm, software raid unlike hardware raid which does support hot swap.


    Simply 'pulling' a drive from a working array will result in the array becoming inactive, this can be confirmed from the command line and running cat /proc/mdstat

    Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

  • Esse é o comportamento esperado, o OMV usa mdadm, ataque de software, ao contrário do ataque de hardware, que suporta troca a quente.


    Simplesmente 'puxar' uma unidade de uma matriz de trabalho resultará na inatividade da matriz, isso pode ser confirmado na linha de comando e executando cat /proc/mdstat

    There's some stuff I can see from how to adjust the raid in this case,

    ?( If a drive fails within a working array then the array is still accessible but will be displayed as clean/degraded


    If you physically remove a drive as you did then the array simply disappears, or rather will not be displayed in the GUI.


    OMV uses mdadm which is software raid so any changes have to be completed in the software
