It took me awhile to figure out that one of my SATA ports on a Silicon Image card was the source of some unstable behaviour my box had been exhibiting. I had a few lock ups and i had to power button shutdown a few times. I am running RAID5 with 3 disks.
I move the disks around on the controller and currently the fault port is unused. The instability is no longer there and I attempted to recover the RAID. OMV was no longer showing the raid so did:
This assembled the raid without disk sda which I had to re-add which then start recovery of the RAID. I allowed that to run overnight but this morning I noticed the RAID was in the state below.
I am not sure why drive sda is showing up as a spare or even how to make it active.
I have gotten to this point. I am not sure what the next steps are. Any ideas?
