DSM Volume Parition Info Recovery


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to go about restoring lost volume info?


I was adding a new disk today and DSM gave me a error of some kind, so I figured I'd reboot the NAS but it hung up on the reboot. powered down and rebooted to no volume info. The 3 original drives in the volume show as initiated and I'm pretty sure all my data is still there. All searches on the net show synology themselves can SSH into the box and restore lost volume info.. but obviously that does me no good. Anyone know what I can do to recover my volume?


Running Synology DS3612xs - DSM 4.2 build 3202 in ESXI.


I just found this guide to get the data off, but I'd still like to learn how to recover the volume info if anyone knows.

That guide didn't help me, ran into a problem:


Run sudo mdadm --assemble --scan
receive : mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically.


Been searching around the net and came across this thread http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/syno ... -t386.html




I've since booted back up the NAS and been working from SSH. I've found what i guess is my volume config backup /etc/lvm/backup/vg1000 and i was able to see all the info on each of my drives running mdadm --examine /dev/sd on each disk a1, a2, b1, b2... ect.


Anyone have any ideas on how to restore my volume?
