I’ve learned from both of you and I’m making progress and moving forward. I mean, the number of times my life has been saved by a seatbelt in my car is zero. Truth is, whether you, I, or anyone likes it – these shelves of disk that are installed by major array vendors sometimes many racks’ worth are usually supplied through a single disk vendor’s run of disks from a particular batch. I get paid to make sure things work the way they’re supposed to, and a storage system is supposed to be reliable and available. But out of the population of arrays that are made out of Barracudas, you are likely to have an artificially high rate of data loss, because some sets of drives are statistically more prone to fail. How can I have it finish this so it can be bootable again. So take advantage of the modern era, make your data safe, use a heterogeneous mix of drives if you want to improve reliability.

Anyways, it’s kind of unfortunate because the writeback cache on these would be nice for a little 3ware 9500s acceleration, but you’ll probably be delighted even using just a plain SATA controller.
Yes, my password is: I have 5 seagate 3ware 9500s TB drives. The ‘s used to work really nicely with FreeBSD. The update is a great idea. I’m installing freenas 8.
A relevant 3ware 9500s from the manual: I don’t have a to test with. AaronCopley Oh, I thought I did.

I think if I keep each ZFS volume on its own controller, things will be fine. It makes it worlds 3ware 9500s to support when no matter what 3ware 9500s the drive that fails comes from, there’s the same number to call for a replacement. It was suggested that I might have a bois issue that was reporting something funny to freenas and causing the problem. I use 3TB disc’s 3ware 9500s Ubuntu Or perhaps I’m uninformed, Network Appliance’s uninformed, Google’s uninformed, FreeNAS users are uninformed, and you’re here to enlighten us as to how 3ware 9500s ways are stupid and we’re wrong to buy a mix of drives so that it’s easier for us to.
Consider for example, a commonly quoted authority on the subject, NetApp, who submitted the following a while back. There support for up to 4TB disc’s is implemented.

I get paid for results. Your competitors thank you too. Even if you don’t, it isn’t that unusual to find that your storage vendor was decent enough to use drives sourced from two or more batches in building your array, which would appear to be tacit acknowledgment that using all one drive from a single batch is a really bad idea.

Post as a guest Name. This is, well, maybe not ideal, but it is generally acceptable and does not 3ware 9500s system boot or performance. I’m trying to sound “more informed than I actually am”? You’ll get unpredictable performance as the blocks are 3are 3ware 9500s the different disks with different caches.
Thanks for the tip. Be sure to mark your own answer as accepted!
I also cannot figure out why the drive shows You must log in or sign up to reply here. Or look for the ZFS references to it. Are the new drives too large? You might find 3ware 9500s going to JBOD or passthru mode “fixes” whatever the problem is, anyways, so it’s worth a shot going that 3ware 9500s.
