Ok so my 5 Day Old Shiny new NAS started sending me emails telling me
“Volume ‘DataVolume’ is in degraded mode.”
ok Sure enough there is one Drive in Amber on the front… I head to the web and see that I need to pull the drive to get the S/N to get a replacement… Ok so I shut down the NAS, Pull The Drive, Fire the unit back up and now I get the Following… “[Volume Status] Data Volume ‘DataVolume’ doesn’t exist!” and can not access the 6TB of Data I just spent 4 days slowly copying onto it.
Someone Please Help as I have been Dealing with Raid 5 on wintel servers for years and have never seen an array lose Data with just one drive failed. so I am guessing that the reboot is waiting to mount the volume when I get a replacement drive? Is there any way I can tell it I am happy to continue in degraded mode till the new drive arrives?
Or is there any way to use a USB drive as a hot spare to convince this one to come back up?
My knowledge of Linux is just about tapped out knowing how to spell it, so I will need detailed steps if it involves the shell.
