I’m glad to hear that it doesn’t matter about the UDMA speed.
The drobo is completely empty.
The 3x LVM ext4 volumes work fine, albeit slower than I expected for 5x SATA II’s writing in parallel.
Also something I noticed while watching these errors fly by every boot, is that they occur on all the volumes attached via that (S)ATA interface, not just the linux softRAID hotspare.
I think it’s absolute crap that the drobo only supports antiquated filesystems. I wish I could load custom firmware & JBOD it to do zfs over iSCSI.
What an enormous waste of money this is turning out to be, wow. Never again.[hr]
It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever that it can only do one filesystem and not another.
That’s like saying you can only save filetype foo to this block range, or I’ll panic & cause corruption.
How is it not a block is a block is a block?
