RAID Volume Not Mounting

Since the 6.1 update my RAID volume is not always mounting. I try to mount the volume from within SoftRAID and it does not work. The only solution is a restart. The RAID volume of 4 hard drives has no errors. 

Thank you for your help!

Can you send a support file saved when the volume is not mountable?

thanks!

@softraid-support Here is the support file generated just after SoftRAID was unable to mount the RAID volume.

What is the error output to this command in terminal (paste it in)

 

sudo kmutil load -p /Library/Extensions/SoftRAID.kext

 

Or does your volume mount?

While scouring System preferences, I am not seeing where to approve the RAID volume as mentioned in the Terminal output. I did confirm that SoftRAID 6.1 is allowed to run in Accessibility and Full Disk Access. I also saw that SoftRAID Monitor was unchecked, so I checked it and ran Terminal again. The output changed to this:

Error Domain=KMErrorDomain Code=27 "Extension with identifiers com.owc.driver.SATA-Command,com.owc.driver.SCSI-Device,com.owc.driver.SCSI-Device0E,com.softraid.driver.SoftRAID not approved to load.

The RAID volume only mounts after a restart. I am unable to mount the RAID volume from within SoftRAID. 

I don't know if this is related, but I do have another thread going on another forum page https://forums.softraid.com/functionality-issues/softraid6-always-needs-administrator-authentication/paged/3/#post-12073  where we've just discovered that, despite best efforts, the SoftRAID driver is stuck at 6.0.5 while running SoftRAID version 6.1.

To try to get the driver approved, reinstall SoftRAID driver. then wait, or navigate to System Preferences/Security/general adn "Allow".

 

If the option is not there, then there is a macOS issue. I would boot with command r and "reinstall macOS" it wil not affect your system, but will take a hour or so. Then try installing the driver again and see if the Allow option is available.
