I have an 8TB system, configured for RAID 5. All drives were operational (green) prior to installing the latest firmware (2.3.02). After firmware was downloaded and installed - along with the obligatory reboot - the drive LEDs show amber. I can’t believe any of the drives actually failed, and seems to suggest something went wrong with the firmware upgrade. I watched the upgrade sequence from the browser - both the “Kernal” and the “System” installations went to 100%. At this point, the drives appear to have been restarted as part of the process. I have my Sharespace connected to a UPS so there has never been any power problems. In fact, I don’t remember ever having one hardware problem within the 4 years my system has been in-place. And now they’ve all apparently failed? I can’t believe it. I’ve looked at other posts, and unfortunately, have never used LINUX before. I am an IT person so, if I have to I’ll start digging into LINUX for some kind of recovery. However, I’ve got to believe there is a simpler method to restoring my system. I’ve also read where folks suspect the controller. Is this chip/sub-system field replaceable?
Thanks for your help,
