Recieved RMA for a 612 with 2x300 GB drives to work as RAID-1. The drives arrived in a separate box and I tried to run the rescue CD right away after installing the drives. That didn't work and I discovered that RAID wasn't enabled yet in the drive controller. I did that and needed to build the array. I couldn't get through the "build" option; I could only "clear" the array but it's still in a "clearing" state after 24 hours. How long should this take? Am I following the wrong process? My RMA tech is "too busy" to help.
Are you running ACNS, WAFS, or WAAS? ACNS does not support RAID. WAFS 3.0 and WAAS 4.0 only support RAID in software, so it shouldn't be enabled on the hardware controller. Let me know what software you are running, and we can go from there.
Running WAAS 184.108.40.206. I just tried to disable hardware RAID but it says "Active Array: cannot disable RAID support." Probably because it's still in a "clearing" state. I'm wondering if I can power down, remove a drive & power up in order to disable hardware RAID?
