The same goes for realtek nics. I found your post by searching for the dmesg errors. Hardware raid support is not important since I will be using software raid. I gave up on the Highpoint and bought the Supermicro that was mentioned here. Website, accessed October 19,

Ars Tribunus Angusticlavius et Subscriptor. The same goes for realtek nics. If your RAID is set up by UUID – and it probably is – the machine won’t even notice or care if you swap drives between different ports with wild abandon.

Only drives plugged in to the first 2 channels are recognized. From that page I linked to earlier.

I just ran into this issue for a 88sd7042. However, it did not work for me I would like to reuse the qnap case instead of just scrapping it.

In the same way that software developers code assuming malicious input, hardware vendors need to design for the worst possible signals from other devices. Most importantly, no other disks failed at any stage following the move from the Marvell to the SiI controller. After kicking out the disk from the array, that rebuild time dropped to 5 hours, which is a pretty compelling argument for using enterprise disks to have them die quicker and cleaner.

Try one of the marvell drivers instead, like sky2 or skge. Thing is that the output does show the 4 channels. I could not get the proprietary drivers to work, and the non-proprietary drivers are buggy.

I just ordered up two of the Syba cards you recommended. Resources Latest reviews Search resources. If it works then that is a huge bonus.

Here is 88ss7042 output I get from dmesg when I loaded the driver before. I can’t swap it out without ditching the whole plan.
