Troubleshooting RocketRaid-based G-SPEED Setup Tips

Troubleshooting RocketRaid-based G-SPEED Setups Tips

Ensure that the RR adapter card is in the correct slot. The RR2314 requires a 4X slot, the RR4322 and RR4522 require a 8X slot for best performance. Check that the card is seated properly.

Check drive and enclosure for proper indicator lamps. Each drive should have a blue LED enabled to indicate health. The enclosure will also have a blue LED enabled. A red lamp indicates a problem with the unit.

Check or replace cables, or try another port on the adapter card.

Log into the WEB GUI. Logging into the WEB GUI successfully indicates an adapter card that is generally functioning properly. Once logged into the WEB GUI, there are more troubleshooting options available.

  1. The first place to check is the Manage>Array page that comes up on login. There you can see all the drives connected to the card along with the RAID sets associated with those drives. The lower part of the window is a list of the Physical Device connected to the RR card, and the upper part of the window are the Logical Devises, where the RAID sets created with those drives appear. If there is a current RAID set that does not appear in the Logical Devise section but does appear in the Physical Devises, try clicking the Rescan button a number of times until the Logical Device you are troubleshooting appears.
  2. Another area to look at is the Drive Status, where you can monitor the drives temperature and bad sector count.
  3. The Events Log can give the details of everything that has occurred during the operation of the Array, including drives connecting/disconnecting, drive initialization, drive failures, card failures, and more.
