    Thanks for that symm.

    I agree that having 2 SAS Raid controllers accessing the same disks is a scarey thought, but we would be using 2 SAS HBAs accessing the same (external SAS) LUN, which sounds...

    Any update on this one, as we have just seen the same thing on a LSI MegaRaid controller.

    It took a couple of reboots (after the pv resize) just to get the new size to report correctly in Unit...

    Was there a resolution for this?
    This has just happened to us for a system ready to ship.
    I debated whether to leave it at 3276 or upgrade it to 3518 - obviously I made the wrong choice!
    Hardware...

    Our limited experience with DSS as NAS in a Windows environment with a large AD has followed a similar path - struggled with it for a while then gave in & used Windows server/s as the NAS. The posix...

    Done, with latest version.
    Just before grabbing the logs, I also repeated the test of pulling: a PSU (there are two), a fan, and a Hdd in RAID set. The server status LED lit yellow and enclosure /...

    Thanks for the update.
    After yet another v6 install (3530), the hardware monitoring is working better, but I am sure there is still work to do. Eg. it is not reporting any Disk Status data at the...

    Only possible factor was that we...
