Hello!

Is anybody that use WD ULTRASTAR drives on Zxyel NAS?

I have one pair of Western Digital Ultrastar DC HC520 12Tb HUH721212ALE604 0F30146

and i try to use it in my Zxyel NAS (both 326 and 542)…

My disk are identified ok but any attempt to create a volume ends

with nothing…

No error, just operation is canceled and no volume created…

    The disk shouldn't matter, SATA is SATA. Having said that, the 512 bytes physical sector size seems unlikely to me for a 12TB disk.

    Have you the possibility to test the disk outside the NAS?

    Thanks for anwser!

    Yes, those drives are manafactured in two variants with 512 and 4096 bytes/sector…

    Outside of NAS i tested and is not detected by bios…

    Maybe my PC is to old…

    After a while appear at Disk Management with no volume and whan i try

    to initialize via GPT ends with error: «I/O error» or «Incorect operation»

    Disks was new, i open sealed package, and is very unliked both beeing damaged…

    Seems more a problem with compatibility…

    So you have 3 different systems (two different NASses and a PC) which all recognize the disks (OK, the PC is a bit slow on that) but fail to partitionize it. The PC spawns an I/O error. Maybe the NASses do that too, but unfortunately they don't show low level errors.

    My first thought wouldn't be compatibility but defective disk(s). (SATA is SATA, and it's easy to kill a disk. Just drop it from 1 meter, or something like that).

    Can you login on the NAS over ssh (enable it in TCP/IP settings), run dmesg to see the last timestamp, try to create a volume on that disk, and then run dmesg again. There might be new log line indicating the problem.

    [ 533.348920] end_request: I/O error, dev sdd, sector 0

    So the NAS is also spawning an I/O error. You can ask the smart values of that disk:

    su
    smartctl -a /dev/sdd

    Here should have been the table of SMART values. But it failed. So either the disk is dead, or it is seriously incompatible, which should not be possible, AFAIK. Does the other disk fail the same way?

    Yes, both disks are the same simptoms…

    I run some hdparm commands and i see this status at security…

    how new disk are locked status?

    even WD Dashboard on PC desktop indicate that both drives are Locked…

    i read about this and seems a lot of ATA commands are not permited when drive is in locked state…

    Mijzelf, thank you for your time!

    Locked? Are you sure the disks are new? That should mean someone put a password on them.
