I don't quite understand this drive layout. Are drive 1 and drive 3 a raid1 combo?

Could you please print the contents of /proc/mdstat and the outpout of mount? Thanks! --Hanno 18:47, 13 May 2005 (CEST)

Rescue an array from Knoppix?

The flash rom on my unit died and I can no longer access the Terastation. I'd like to retrieve some data from the raid5 array I set up.

Question: How did that happen? Is the Terastation's hardware that easily breakable? --Hanno 20:14, 13 May 2005 (CEST)

I tried connecting the array to another computer and booting into Knoppix. All the hard drives were recognized but the only mountable drive was the first partition on the first drive. I might be running into the 137gb drive size limit, though.

I did not have four primary ports available so I set the jumpers to master/slave.

Has anyone mounted a raid 5 array on another system successfully?

No, but I don't think there will be any trouble. I can try that. But it'll have to wait till the weekend.
