we tried to reset a DX4000 which originally had 4 drives with 4TB.
Because we do not need so much space on the NAS we removed one of
the drives just using 3 of them. (One in reserve in case of trouble in the future )
We followed exactly the description in the manual and
everything seemed to work fine …
But now we have the message “Initialzing OK Searching …” on the display
of the DX4000 for several days!! and nothing seems to happen.
Could it be that the removed drive makes trouble (initializing with 3x4TB instead of 4x4TB)?
Or in other words is it possible at all to intialize a 4x4TB DX4000 as 3x4TB?
Does anybody succeed in doing this?
I know that a DX4000 works with 3 drives, we have another one which was
originally delivered with 2x2TB which we expanded with a 3rd drive, by
just adding a 2TB drive ‘on the run’ and it worked perfect …
But maybe a DX4000 4x4TB is somehow different to a DX4000 2x2TB
and requires that all 4 drives are present on initializing?
best regards and thanks for your answers
