Raid Health Degraded


#1

I have a mycloud FR4100 having hard drive WD SATA 6TB 64Mb cache x 4 configured with RAID 5 with 4(four) hard drive and hard drive #4 having Red light . The power led is flashing red and the display reads Vol 1. Degraded see dashboard.

The NAS is configured with one RAID 5 volume and when I open the dashboard it goes to the RAID Profile screen which says that RAID Health is degraded. I did a manual rebuild and it still reports the volume as degraded and the Disk Status, all four drives report GOOD. I took a look at the S.M.A.R.T status, but I’m not certain what it is telling me. I need to do some more research, Essentially what I am trying to understand is which disk is going bad (I am assuming that some disk error is the root cause).

I’m a little surprised by this as this NAS and the drives are under a year old and they don’t get that much use. It is used to backup.

I pull out the hard disk #4 , and wait couple of minute, then insert in to the same location , and Rebuilt Manual Raid , it took time 2 to 3 hours to rebuilt , after that all is fine as previous, but still Red light on hard drive #4 , and same error “Raid Health Degraded”

Please reply with your expert opinion.

Thanks

SMART status doesn’t get reported in the GUI as they cut off the field that contains the actual value. Look up smart info by user dsvw for more info.
Did you replace the drive with a new drive or did you rebuild with the same as before?
Your drives are still under warranty.

no I didn’t replace with a new hard drive ,

I used same hard drive , just pull and push on same slot,

Then i rebuilt RAID manually.

But still same error “RAID Degraded”

See here: My Cloud PR4100 / PR2100 Firmware
Use SSH and share the output of

smartctl -A /dev/sdd

I suspect the disk reports errors in its SMART data, so you should replace it with a new disk.
Use the warranty to get a new disk.

Don’t put your drives under useless stress (e.g. rebuilding with a bad disk) because you lose all data on the next failure.

You have several broken sectors, replace the disk with a new one.

Ok, Thanks for prompt Reply.

Can you inform how can i claim the warranty , because i checked the serial# of faulty harddrive on internet .

its shows your harddrive warranty will expire on 2019.

so how can i claim warranty , because we forget from where we purchased this, Also we don’t have any invoice for this , can we trace seller of this device via internet , sorry i know this question is not related with you, if you have any knowledge so please share with us.

Thanks

I just figured out why i have SMART bad errors when trying to install drives on my PR4100 NAS
Actually i started with a EX4100, couldn’t get 4 drives to install and assumed it was the NAS, Bought the PR4100 and same problem. I had gone through purchasing 7 drives returned two and could not get more than 3 to install under raid 5. I was getting random SMART bad messages.
After wasting a lot of money i realized that when i set up the latest PR4100 unit i was still using the previous EX4100’s power supply. I put a different power supply on the unit and it installed immediately.
Probably another good reason to run two power supplies! I’m not a tech guy, hoping this will help save someone else some frustration
