  1. This controller worked fine throughout the preclear of 3 external Seagate Archive drives. I just installed the 3 drives internally on the PERC H310 controller and ran a Verify MBR preclear signature test. All 3 passed and show as verified precleared.

  3. I think there may be a FAQ for this, but there are other means. You might be able to plug the USB drive into another computer and then bring up an editor (such as Notepad++) on the following file: /boot/config/shadow On the first line you should see something such as: root:$&$&%*1112233484847648DHD$%.:15477:0:99999:7::: You can try changing that line to the following, essentially delete the content between the first and second semi-colons: root:15477:0:99999:7::: That might make the root user no longer have a password. Save the file, eject the USB Flash Drive, plug in to your unRAID server and try booting.
  4. XFS is preferred all around unless you're using multiple drive in the cache pool, then your only options are to use Unassigned-Devices to manage things yourself or use BTRFS for Cache Pool.
  5. Seagate makes and sells the drive to operate completely within that enclosure so whatever natural temps it hits during that use is well within how it was designed and expected to be used.
  6. It was avilable for me in the Preclear plugin when clicking on drive name. However I do not have UD installed so dont know if that made any difference.
  7. And many won't be able to help you without details from diagnostics.
  8. That should be in a docker, as it will require a lot of files and programs.
  9. Specifically use the built in Help system on the Shares > Share Settings > Allocation Method setting.
  10. Depends on your settings.
  11. As you know ... Your crashpIan is completely setup wrong. I suggest posting in the Crashplan support thread for help. Specifically... Map /data (or /mnt) on the container side to /mnt on the host side. Note that whatever path you input on the container side will be the path you access from within the CrashPlan app.
  12. If you have dockers properly configured they won't store anything new inside the docker image at all.
  13. For easier reference for others, here is the post with link to video on how to shuck the drives from their external enclosure. It really is quite easy to do.
  14. I'm preclearing the Seagate 8TB External USB3 drives via a USB3.1 controller card. It's not that much slower at all. As @c3 indicates, the preclear typically finishes before I have enough free time to move onto the next step. Though if you can, try preclearing the drives connected internally. But it's not the end of the world if you have to do so externally via USB3. A single preclear cycle on the 8TB Archive drive is around 45 hours when it's in the external enclosure. That's fast enough for me. The drive does get much warmer in the enclosure, hitting 48 C at the highest instead of remaining in the 30s C when run internally. Here's the first preclear results. # Step 1 of 5 - Pre-read verification: [14:46:14 @ 150 MB/s] SUCCESS # # Step 2 of 5 - Zeroing the disk: [14:39:48 @ 151 MB/s] SUCCESS # # Step 3 of 5 - Writing unRAID's Preclear signature: SUCCESS # # Step 4 of 5 - Verifying unRAID's Preclear signature: SUCCESS # # Step 5 of 5 - Post-Read verification: [16:29:27 @ 134 MB/s] SUCCESS # # 190-Airflow_Temperature_Cel 23 48 Up 25 #
