You call this moved without a hitch?
So I'm guessing this is your storage not an OS array?
Intel Storage Matrix console
This better not be 8.9
You might of very well not had this problem even with 8.9 on your old setup for some reason that no one really knows why but you do now.
Well one other question also, does the computer need to stay on during the entire rebuild or is it safe to shut down and restart the computer at all? If restarted, will it continue where it left off or completely start over?
Yes you should be able to shut down or restart as its rebuilding and continue where it left off but really just leave it on.
Now you can install RST now even in the middle of rebuilding...but might be safer to let it finish restart check your array and data then install RST.
and then run a Verify
What could happen if you continue to use Matrix Storage Manager 8.9?
Thank you for the info! Well the initial move went without a hitch. The drive went into degraded more than a day after though. I was using 8.9 which came with the board software. I will wait for this to finish and then upgrade to 9.6 and hopefully it doesn't happen again. Thank you very much for the info!
Hello again thank you very much for the info.I have upgraded the software to RST which seems to be a lot better. The raid rebuild has been completed (even though it took nearly 3 days). The RST software appears to also make it run a lot smoother, especially when copying large files.
Hopefully with the learning experiences of this I will be better off in the future how to handle raid. Thank you!
