And the experience had a bad end

Recommended Posts

Well, I have been using the XPEnology on bare metal at home.

3 Volumes.

Mobo: ASRock E3C224D2I - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G9U6FIQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

HDS:

-Volume 1: 2x 2TB WD RED (Raid 1)

-Volume 2: 2x 3TB WD Green (Raid 0)

-Volume 3: 2x 6TB WD Red (Raid 1)

 

But I have experienced problems with the IPMI, I could not get it working anymore, even update the BCM.

 

Suddenly I started facing freezes and it was not possible to access the DSM, but the Web it was OK.

I have disassembled the HDDs and put on another mobo with also 6 sata ports, same problem. Hangs on boot.

The root cause was that the system was corrupted in the Volume 1, where it had the system installed.

I was not able to reinstall without lose the data.

 

What to do in this case?

I cannot rely on a system that even with RAID1 it fails when 1 volume fails.

I have managed to boot into linux and copy the important data to a spare HDD.

Lots of data, need to delete some files to make it fit in 3TB HDD.

 

But I thing that I did not followed the correct procedure to repair the system's partition.

I was afraid that I would lose the data.

 

In the migration tutorial from Synology it says that you cannot change the HDDs position in the synology.

Does it apply to XPEnology as well? I mean, should we keep track on which HDD is on which SATA port in the motherboard?

 

Thanks
