  1. Hard drive not being recognized

    Relevant thread jack, so I wouldn't be concerned! Borrowed an SAS2LP from a friend and all my problems are resolved. The card was absolutely the problem. Just gotta do a bit of research on the LSI cards now!
  2. Hard drive not being recognized

    That's what I'm seeing - the 16 port. I'm also seeing that i can get 3 SAS2LP's for the same price. I gotta pull the trigger on a 24-bay case at some point soon, so the card might just wait until then!
  3. Hard drive not being recognized

    I haven't either, but this comment made me realize there could be issues that I haven't had yet (I have a SASLP, and I just ordered an SAS2LP for continued expansion). What's the "recommended" 8 port SATA card now? (or 2x SAS for breakout cables)
  4. Hard drive not being recognized

    So... I just had a thought.. Isn't the SASLP a Marvell controller? Are these reliable in V6? I haven't had any issues, but before my order ships I better check no one else is having problems!!
  5. Hard drive not being recognized

    Ok.. that was not clear from the instructions.. Tried with out the script and I basically get the same thing where the card is found as both SATA and IDE. Between this card and the Marvell controller on the board, I have just ordered a second SASLP, so we'll see if that fixes me up! Thanks again all for the help.
  6. Hard drive not being recognized

    Ok.. that was not clear from the instructions.. as I said before, I'll comment it out and reboot and see what happens... Thanks for all your input on this!
  7. Hard drive not being recognized

    Hmm.. so this is a V6 upgrade issue. Marvell not recommended? Does that mean my MB controller is likely to cause problems at some point as well? I'll try commenting out the ahci script when I get home.
  8. Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm having an issues with my HPT Rocket 62x loading both IDE and SATA drivers after upgrading to V6 using this script. Anyone have any ideas for a fix? I'm about to order a new SATA card, but I thought I'd ask here first. Thanks - details in my previous thread.
  9. Hard drive not being recognized

    OK! I have a bit more info here. Updated the IPMI firmware - read somewhere if you upgrade the BIOS without the IPMI you can get troubles. Moved the HighPoint RocketRaid 62X card to a different slot and I get exactly the same thing. No reference to the card in the dmesg, but a single drive on port 1, will work. The only Hitachi drive in the system is attached to my HPT card, but the card is not recognized in the dmesg. Here is the drive getting recognized and I can use it properly in the OS.

In the lspci I do see the device now as a SATA controller, but it seems to also list a IDE interface - so is there an AHCI issue still? Any more input would be VERY much appreciated! knox-diagnostics-20170624-2221.zip
  10. Hard drive not being recognized

    No, they are for sure from this disk - all my disks are 3tb reds, except an SSD, and the drives plugged into this card. When I have one disk plugged into the HPT card, it works perfectly. When I put a second disk in to it, there are intermittent errors like the ones I originally posted. This was the same problem I had when I first got the card until in found the enable_achi script linked above. Now it's not being recognized again so we're back to a basic default operation (that I don't really understand how it works). Ill try a different slot and report back!
  11. Hard drive not being recognized

    Ok, we'll this is clearly the problem... my HPT 62x is not being recognized. The only ACHI setting in the BIOS was for the on board controller and it was enabled. As far as I can tell this happened when I upgraded the CPU/BIOS, so I'm unsure what to do next. Any idea why this would be recognized?
  12. Hard drive not being recognized

    OK! So i think I have found the problem. I replaced the CPU in my system (with a Xeon for Plex transcoding) a few weeks ago - and that required a BIOS upgrade. I have a feeling that the new bios defaulted to AHCI disabled. That means that my HPT card may not be working correctly. In the middle of a big copy now, but as soon as it's over, I'll be reboot and check it. Diagnostics from the other day (nothing has really changed since then) attached. Can you see if the Marvell chip on that card is being recognized? I have a Marvell chipset on the MB as well that is working fine. Thanks for your input! knox-diagnostics-20170621-1918.zip PS: I have tried 3 cables and 3 disks with no major difference. Today I did manage to get a disk to mount, but as soon as I put it under any heavy load, I started getting write errors (cp: cannot create regular file '...': Input/output error) even though it's still mounted rw.
  13. Hard drive not being recognized

    Ok, reseated the card and tried a second replacement SATA cable. Same issue. The problems seem to be isolated to when I connect 2 disks to my HighPoint Rocket 62x controller. This card was working perfectly by running the enable_ahc script. I realize now that this might have stopped working when I upgraded to UnRAID 6. I spent ages working the array when I added the second parity drive, and "a disk failed". It was a redundant disk anyway, so I just shrunk the array and ignored it but now I realize that it was the second disk on this controller so it's likely a driver issue. Does anyone know what's involved in getting this controller working on V6?
  14. Hard drive not being recognized

    Oh.. now I think about it, this has only been a problem since the most recent update. Any change to the drivers?
  15. Hard drive not being recognized

    New cable, no change. SATA card??
