We have a NSS4000 Linksys 4 bay gigabit NAS. The trouble is that when i created an array (4 drives 500GB Raid level 5) and started some system integrity tests, like failing one of the four drives, the system in about 3 minutes detected that array is in degraded mode. Later in system log i saw this "2009-02-21 11:25:11 Degraded Mode Management has stopped RAIDA :)Later i inserted the new disk and the system started the rebuild array operation in system log i saw this
"2009-02-21 11:33:32 RAIDA is running in Degraded Mode" seems normal, but when i tryied to acces one of my shared volumes on my computer system says invalid home directory for my created users or groups it meens i lost all the data, all the shares that i have created.
The same information i get when the rebuild whas finished. So it meens when system is in natural fail the whole array is down and all data is lost? Why I could not access data during rebuilding proccess?
thanks a lot in advance,
