Greyhole pool is missing

  • Hello,
    Yesterday one of my greyhole pools went missing. The Greyhole plugin says that the space is NaN undefined.
    There is also a lot of Trash on my greyhole drives. I'm wondering if the one pool was deleted, which maybe filled up all of the trash.



    Any ideas on what is happening?
    thanks

  • The drive did not fail, at least I don't think so. Using putty I can cd to the drive, although it's contents are strange:

    Code
    root@openmediavault:/media/7fb5cc61-3820-4cc5-868c-d458bf383370# ls
    ls: reading directory .: Input/output error


    In the OMV gui -> Storage -> file systems all of my drives are online. They are all nearly full though, which I think is also strange.


    In terms of restoring data, I wonder if the trash is full, amongst other things. Reading about the greyhole trash, I keep seeing references to .gh_trash folders. I can't find anything like this on my drives. I have trash enabled.


    I really have no idea what to do.


    thanks

  • The input/output error when executing ls is a bad sign that drive has probably failed. What is the output of: mount

    omv 5.5.2 usul | 64 bit | 5.4 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 5.3.3
    omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

  • Well, the drive is still mounted read/write but there is something wrong with it. Look in the output of dmesg for errors.

  • There are many output errors like below:


    If the drive is lost, so be it. However, shouldn't I have access to the smb share (or the files that were on the drive) somehow? I have Greyhole setup for each smb share to have 2 file copies. I thought this meant that each file is saved on 2 different drives for redundancy. Clearly something is happening with Greyhole because my drives used to be something like 60% full and now they are 92% full.
