Die Hochzeit der InselLeoparden

Hey,

Linux und ich waren gestern bei schönem Wetter den Cache Die Hochzeit der InselLeoparden suchen. Er knapp hinter dem Ortsausgang von Litzelstetten. Man kann direkt mit dem Auto an den Startpunkt fahren.

Die Runde war einfach super. Linux konnte die meiste Zeit frei laufen und hatte jede Menge Spaß 🙂 Die Aussicht auf den Bodensee ist auch nicht von schlechten Eltern.

Der Cache ist also absolut weiterzuempfehlen!

Linux der kleine Drechspatz

Hey Freunde, endlich mal wieder ein Tagebucheintrag von mir 🙂

Heute ging es in den Wald. War super zum spielen und herumrennen 🙂 Und siehe da, da ist doch sogar ein angenehm kühlendes Schlammloch (bei der Hitze…). Also nix wie rein! Aber Moment: was schreien denn die beiden mich so an? Hab ich irgendwas verbrochen? Naja also mir fällt nix ein, also nix wie rein in den kühlen schwarzen Schlamm. JUHU.

Nvidia RAID 1 degraded

Hey,
today i turned my computer on and got surprised by the raid bios with a red blinking „degraded“ on two (?!?!) of my raid array. At first i asked my self „why are there two arrays“? My configuration is the following: i have two 500 Gigabyte Samsung S-ATA drives in a raid-1 mirror. So again, why are there two arrays?
A quick search at google directed me to this article at techbytes. It describes exactly the problem i’m having. Looking at the drive management of windows it showed a second hard drive with the same partition as my raid array but without drive letters.

It seems like the RAID controller devided my raid-1 array into two raid-1 array with one drive each. And of course therefore both were shown as degraded. So what to do now? As described in the techbytes article i had a look in the nvidia system control (the „Storage“ tab). There were shown the two arrays with one drive in each array. In one array, it showed me drive letters, the other didn’t. So that was the „bad“ drive. I noted it’s channel (0.2).

So what to do now? Following the techbytes article i went to the raid bios, deleted the array with the channel 0.2 drive in it. And rebuilt the correct array with the 0.2 drive.

Problem fixed…

But still i have no clue how this can happen. Seems like many other Nvidia raid user had the same issue before… Strange, strange…
