    for the raid in question it was a mix of drives, but it was 8x 8tb drives setup in raid 10.

    most of them would have been Seagate BarraCuda ST8000DM004 8TB 5400 RPM 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - OEM



    The only thing i did before this all went crashing down was mess with a network setting. I use ethtools to tell it to change from a network speed of 100mb/s to 1000mb/s to see if it would allow faster upload. (foolish i know was curious what would happen) then everything broke.

    Did you really create three raid 0 arrays to create three "drives" big enough to put in your raid 10 array along with five real drives?

    yes, i needed everything to be 8tb to work, and i was wanting to take advantage of the drives i could.

    While it is possible to do this, I would never tell someone to create an array like that. Why do you need raid?


    You can try:

    mdadm --stop /dev/md5

    mdadm --assemble --force --verbose /dev/md5 /dev/md[123] /dev/sd[hijkl]

    If you would've cut and paste, it would have done the same thing as what you expanded it to.

    Something seems to be wrong with sdl. So, it did assemble but you have a degraded array.
