ReadyNas214 xraid

7 days ago, I pushed the button on a factory reset of my ReadyNas214 with 4x6TB disks. This defaults to xraid, which I have never used before, but am curious about. Today, 7 days later, exactly, we are at "RESYNC data 50%" progress. Some questions for you:

Is this kind of duration normal/expected? Does it really take 14 days to set up xraid with 4x6tb disks?

What steps will be performed when the resync is complete? How long will they take? Assuming resync succeeds, can I start using the nas straight away?

If a disk fails, somewhere down the line, in the future, and I replace it, how long will it take to resync with a replacement disk?

This is longer than usual. I'd expect perhaps 2 days for this.

 

What disks (manufacturer and model) are you using?

Just to confirm - WD Red Plus?  Not WD Reds?  The ordinary Red (WD60EFAX) is an SMR drive, which could take a very long time to resync.

 

Download the log zip file from the logs page, and look to see if any disks have errors.

Re: ReadyNas214 xraid

No errors in the logs.

However, there is an error between keyboard and chair....

Just looking at the logs again and, in the smart_history.log, saw a WD60EFAX where there should have been WD60EFPX.

Not sure how I managed it, but I put in three Red Plus disks and one SMR Red. It was on my desk

when I was testing the others. I must have put one of the new Red Plus disks away, thinking it was one of the old ones, and put an old Red in. It is SMR and clearly the source of the issue.

Man... there's a week I won't get back.

Thanks
