Added new disks to JBOD Tray and Wiped Out Zpool

Hi, here is my setup before the problem:

1 - IBM x3550 8GB Memory and LSI SAS Card
2 - SAS 12 Unit JBOD Tray
8 - 1.5 GB Hard Drives
2 - Raidz Arrays - 4 Drives in each array (one is raidz, one is raidz2)
FreeNAS-8.0.2-RELEASE-amd64 (8288)

The failed zpool is the raidz array. Here is what happened. I needed to add some new disks so I could add replication and more robust protection for my existing storage. So, I added 8 new drives to the JBOD trays and when I rebooted the FreeNAS server, somehow the new drives had duplicate names and two of the disks in my raidz zpool got their names wiped out or something like that.

I don't have a ton of experience with gpart or any of these tools, but I have many years of linux admin experience, so I can definitely take instruction. What I suspect occured is the label of the two drives got wiped out. The data is still there, I am sure, but the labels are gone. When I try to see a zpool status all I get is an error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, I will be moving all of the data to raidz2 after this is repaired. I see that raidz1 is dead.

Thanks!

Did you create another pool using the new drives? Not sure why you think the labels/partitions were overwritten.

Code:
zpool import

zpool status

camcontrol devlist

gpart show

This appears to be a problem. I don't see the other two Western Digital Hard Drives, but the JBOD tray reads them as fine.

Use [code][/code] tags for CLI output and you seem to be missing some commands.

Are the newer drives being enumerated first? What happens if you remove the other tray/new drives.

Should I upgrade before I try to fix the drive issue? I'll try removing everything again tonight and see what the results are.

By upgrade I actually mean a fresh install to a different USB stick. FreeNAS not enumerating all the drives may be a firmware/driver issue. Newer versions of FreeNAS have newer LSI drivers. Typically you should keep the firmware in sync with the driver version, but you can boot to see if it recognizes all the drives.

I would removing everything first so you are starting from a working base. Actually, I might not, but you should.

OK. I'll try to do that. I'll post my results tomorrow morning. I can only work on it during certain hours because I have some functions running on it at regular intervals throughout the night.

I tried rebooting the server with only the 4 disks in the zpool connected and saw this error on the screen. This is one of the reasons why I think the disks may be mislabeled. The system did not recognize the two missing disks after it was fully booted up.

That's likely the FreeNAS boot drive. Seeing as how you couldn't be bothered to supply all the output I requested earlier I can only guess. With the system off, have you completely reseated the drives, SATA connectors and power connectors or moved the problem drives to a bay?

I checked the connectors, reseated the drives in the bays, etc. They don't show up in the output you requested, that is the only reason I did not post it. I will repost everything again after I have some time to spend on it later today.

I managed to get my disks back online after much fiddling with my jbod tray, my cables, my server, etc. It looks like this might have been a connection issue between the jbod trays and the SAS controller.

I tried running a fresh install of Freenas 9 but it failed to boot up properly. So I am still running Freenas 8.0.2 for now. Perhaps I will have a chance to upgrade again in the near future.

Thanks for the help, paleoN!

Excellent.

You could also try the 8.3.2-RELEASE instead.
