However, If you do not go into the controller card’s setup freenqs at pre-boot stage and set the RAID array, in some cases Freenas has difficulty recognizing the interface.
Status Not open for further replies. I can speak to the drives. Following recommendations from search results yielded no fix. You are using RAID to solve the redundancy issue, so get the drives that will meet your performance needs which appear to be minimal and be done with it.

There is a chance Frewnas be taking this Adaptec back and getting the Heck, at the prices listed, you could probably get twice the number of drives for the same cost and have spares on hand.
It was designed in a time where hard drives dominated. Awesome job to everyone involved. Joined May 28, Messages Thanks Gernash Jan 8, Especially helpful for new and prospective users, Cyberjock’s guide contains information that every users should know like the back of their hand.
All the drives below will also fall marginally in price. Todd Aug 12, At STH we test hundreds of hardware combinations each year. We updated both motherboard bios and RAID controller firmware. From this experience, we are going to keep frreenas running log of the best FreeNAS hardware components. For whatever reason, the two SATA drives connected to the motherboard are seen by FreeNAS but none of the drives connected to the controller can be seen.
Getting help with your problem is a lot easier when everyone uses the correct terminology. Elshar, thanks for your input too. Boot up FreeNAS 8 x64 and the array isn’t seen.

I see you freenxs they are set as JBOD, but just try re-initing them again assuming you have no data on them right now.
The SAS is an interesting case.
With hardware RAID you’re only protected from a disk failing. In fact, our office FreeNAS system uses this motherboard.
