Array Checking Time and Implications
« on: June 10, 2012, 01:22:23 pm »

I just replaced a complete set of 6 (3TB) drives on a TS-6VHL Terastation. After formatting each individually a created a single RAID 6 array. The build time was nominal and reports no errors and the expected amount of storage.  The yellow info light has been illuminated for 24 hours now with an associated notification of: "array1_resync_info" The NAS is functioning normally and I have begun transfering files from the 8TB TS.III RAID 5 NAS that it is replacing.

 

How long should I expect the "array checking" or "resync" to take? I need to ensure that the TS-6 NAS is completely stable and valid before re-initializing the TSIII.

 

Many thanks - Pete

6  4TB discs will take you many days for complete check / sync.

2 2TB discs in a buffalo device took me nearly 2 days for complete check / sync

 

If you are lucky, it will be finished in 4 or 5 days.

axe,

Thanks for the  info. The check / sync did complete after about 48 hours. I was able to copy 5 TB of files while this was in progress without any ill effects.All is complete and the system reports normal. No DOA or infant mortality on the 6 3TB Seagate drives (keeping our fingers crossed)...
