Giving up.


I called support...they eventually got back and asked for Admin access.  I gave it to them.  Next time I checked the disk, the problematic disk had reported partition failure.

That was Monday.  For some odd reason, they never got back to me!

Oh well.  If I ever want to watch old episodes of Stargate I am screwed.

he had some sort of plan involving a clean room, 50 illegal mexicans, a microscope and iron filings.

Oh well.

Attachment to data is the root of all suffering.

Do you have access to a PC with 4 SATA ports? by chuckles (4.00 / 1) #10 Thu Oct 01, 2009 at 05:13:31 PM EST
I suspect the array can be reassembled on a Loonix PC. Even if tech support zeroed out one partition, that means you've lost parity but you shouldn't have lost data yet.

Two drives are dead by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #11 Thu Oct 01, 2009 at 05:34:27 PM EST
The goal was to get up to three.

Anyway, the point she is moot as complete rebuild is currently 16.59% done.
