Backgroud
  • FreeNAS 9.10 with 3 iSCSI volumes ( Vol 1 - 2 x 4T as Raid 1, Vol 2 - 1 x 1.5T, Vol 3 - 1 x 1T). VMFS 6 datastore created from those volumes
  • 2 x vSphere 6.5 hosts with vCenter Server 6.5
issues
  • FreeNAS prompt red alert with above volumes ( Vol 1 - volume status is Degraded, One or more devices has experienced an error resulting in data corruption. Applications may be affected. / Vol 2 - volume status is online , One or more devices has experienced an error resulting in data corruption. Applications may be affected.)
  • Some of the Windows vm when migrating from Vol 1 to Vol 2, it will prompt error caused by file vm_name.vmdk. some Windows & Linux vm can be migrated from Vol 1 to Vol 3 without any problem. For those affected vms when performing backup via Veeam 9.5, there is CRC and read failure error. For those unaffected one, there is no problem on Veeam backup.
Questions
  • How to troubleshoot the red alert message from FreeNAS? I suspect it has something to do with the storage vmotion error
  • run smartctl -a on those FreeNAS disks, didn't see error message.
Thanks, S.

thanks DL.
Attached please find the zpool status output.
  • vol 1 = iSCSI4TR1
  • vol 2 = iSCSI-110-1500G
  • vol 3 is in another FreeNAS in good condition

Also for vol 2, how should I wipe or format the drive and recreate the iSCSI volume once I move data out of that volume? Is there any special check (smartctl -a , scrub) to perform? Just want to make sure once I recreate the volume, the potential issue should be eliminated. For now, when I run smartctl, it seems that there is no error on 5, 197, 198.
thanks a ton! S.

The situation is getting worse, it seems that the alert is happening almost every day now. Could it be a memory issue?

This thread has similar issue and it turns out to be memory related. https://forums.freenas.org/index.ph...orruption-applications-may-be-affected.57337/

Could someone give me a hand here?

Many Thanks,
S.

The disks in those 2 pools have died and need to be replaced, the pools recreated, and the data restored from backup. Since a one disk pool has no redundancy, consider using mutltiple disks when you recreate your pools.

Thanks.

I tried to wipe vol 2 and create a new vol with new vsphere 6.5 datastore. I can create new vm in the newly created datastore. However when trying to use Veeam to backup the new vm, it prompts me error and tried to storage vmotion the vm to other datastore, it prompts error access vmdk file. However vm is running OK. I suspect that it might be memory error which cause missing data written to vol 2.

Follow above FreeNAS link regarding the memory test, I run memtest86 for 27 hours still running. It turns out to be 682 memory error. Being new to memtest86, I will try to find out how to identify which memory has issue and check if that would lift the issue.

Thanks,
S

A total of 18G memory ( 3 x Kingston 4G each, 3 x Corsair 2G each). Rerun memtest86 on those Kingston modules with 7 passes without error. Remove Corsair from system.

Currently FreeNAS is running fine and all the issues on storage vMotion and Veeam Backup are all gone with 4-5 different tests.

Tried to get more understanding on FreeNAS log, when I reboot NAS system, the system did prompt me Alert which is the same as before.

Logged into system and found the following for /var/log/messages. Can someone help me?
  • Why it doesn't have log regarding above 3 critical alerts?
  • Does it captured in other log under /var/log?
  • Notice from online that we can download Splunk for free for a daily log data up to 500M. Anyone who can share experience how to setup Splunk with FreeNAS? Can't find much help online. I might open another thread on this topic.
