I'm facing this problem now on an 8x2 TB RAID 5 array. The system seems to work fine and the data is still there, apparently. Despite that, when selecting RAID => S/W RAID => Unit MD0 from the web GUI, in the "Function: Info" frame, it reads "state: clean, degraded". Also, when going back to the "S/W RAID units" menu, unit S6 says "available", while the other 7 units are "in use, Unit MD0". How do I revert it back to the normal operating status?
I have also read this:
but it refers to another version of Open-E, and I'm not willing to try without knowing what I'm doing, and thus possibly destroy the data.
Please help me out before it fails completely.
