Degraded mode. What to do?
#1
I suddenly got today, after some copying, the message: The RAID [RAID] on system [N5550] change to degrade mode" and before that "Disk 3 on [N5550] has failed" with a beep.
I didn't know what to do so I did a reboot.
In the LED display it seems that all 3 disks are good DISKINFO [000_ _] but it still mention: RAID [12_ _ _] [5] Degraded.

What to do?
I have three WD 2Tb Red disk and firmware 2.03.03.

Hi wbree,

replace the faulty disk with a new one
go to raid -> configuration -> check the new disk as "spare" -> apply (or add spare)
and your system make a rebuiled of your raidset !

I had a RAID 5 configuration. Would it be wright to make the third drive a spare or could I just apply it?

I just use the old disk and marked the "spare" button and apply.
He is now recovering (after a half hour 0,5%). I hope it works.

After about 4 hours I got a beep again. "Disk 2 failure" this time. :roll: After reboot the Thecus start discovering again. This must faster. It looks that he sees all three disks.The lights are green while recovering. I hope this time it will end good and not end up in a nightmare!
