WD Sentinel User Guide:


My concern, if there is 2 unit WD Sentinel Drive,and when 1-unit is failure will it automatically fail over to another unit?

Thanks You.

If you are asking if a WD Sentinel has two hard drives and one were to fail, will the other hard drive keep working?  The answer is yes.  See page 31 of the of the User Guide you linked to above.

Good day to you. Let me clarify for this :-

There is 2 units sentinel with 8TB, and concern about if 1 unit sentinel 8TB failure, will the system automatic fail-over to my second unit of sentinel 8TB /

Do this sentinel have this kind of features?

As i understand sentinel come with 2 power port, 2 network port , either each port (Power or Network) failure, it will automatic fail-over to the second port to avoid down time.

Hope above statement would bing you more clearly on my concern. Waiting for your prompt reply. Thank you.

No it is not a “cluster thing”

If the box dies it is hard to get your data back


Good day to you.  So that means this sentinel will not have fail-over features by swift to another unit . Am i right?

Thanks for your reply

That is correct. But there are methods that could be used to copy data from one to the other and the data would be there.

But flail/failover is not in the picture

Thanks for your reply.
