NAS542 RAID5 problem


I have a Nas542. It had a disk problem. So I deleted the Raid structure and then want to reinstall Raid5 again. The process starts but cannot complete. It does not give any error. I updated firmware to last version. It does not work anyway. Any idea for solution? Thanks.

    If you really have a disk problem it won't be solved by creating a new raid array. Which of course doesn't mean the system shouldn't give a clear error message.

    You can probably see what the problem is by logging in over ssh, and execute

    cat /proc/mdstat
    cat /proc/partitions

    The first command gives kernel info about the raid array(s), the second about disks and partitions, and the last about filesystems.
