Mine's working on 11.3 build 20E5196f, no special action required. Kext loaded and volume mounted all on their own after the updated. I did have a panic from com.apple.driver.AppleT8020DART while I was syncing files back over from the backup drive I had been using in the meantime, but that's an Apple issue as previously discussed.

I have a Silicon M1 Mini, running Big Sur 11.3 beta 3 (20E5196f) with SoftRAID v 6.01 b52 (fresh install)

I am trying to mount my Thunderbay Flex that has 112tb Raid as well an internal 8tb OWC Accelsior 4M2.

Prior to 11.3, nothing would mount on the M1 Mini. No exceptions.

Now with 11.3... as well as an uninstall of beta 6.01 b52 and reinstall of 6.01 b52, SoftRAID mounts the Accelsior 4M2 which it never did before, but it doesn't show my RAID in my SoftRAID software, and of course as such, does not mount it.

Yes, Apple's security protocols blocked the system extension initially, but after clicking allowed in prefs and a reboot, all was fine.

Other than, it still is not listing the drives, or mounting my main raid within the Thunderbay Flex.

Any suggestions?

Although not OWC's dept.. does anyone know what the throughput bandwidth is for each of the M1's thunderbolt 3 buses is?

I spoke too soon... a reboot and WHAT IS THIS both volumes are mounting! My Raid 5 112tb and my 8tb Accelsior, both mounting and running on my M1 Mini.

Now my question is.. I have two serials but with beta software, I can't enter either, it just says null null null etc. I have 39 days remaining.. ha. Any chance of a solution to that in the next 38 days? :)

Awesome work guys, THANK YOU!

Beta versions do not need serial numbers. Wait until we release.

 

There is a new beta coming probably next week.

I'm eager to install the macOS 11.3 beta 3 on my M1 mini (11.1 has some troublesome bugs) but I'm reluctant to do so until we get an unambiguous all-clear from SoftRAID. The process of reverting to 11.1 after the 11.2 upgrade was painful and time-consuming.

I've seen only success stories posted here which is very encouraging.

We are researching why some systems fail. One theory is the main issue is for users with multiple systems. We are writing some documentation currently.

@softraid-support You talking about multiple systems means that the startup disk is partitioned, and has multiple bootable systems like 11.1 and 11.2 and 11.3 on them, and you can switch on boot, that correct?

This seems to be the case, yes. But I do not have confirmed word yet.

So (still subject to confirmation) it appears that if you DON’T have multiple bootable systems on your startup disk, it should be safe to install 11.3 beta 3?

@rrg Allow me to add to the success stories. The world has returned to normalcy. Well. My very small corner anyway.

Thanks, yes it is working for most. Only "advanced" users are still going to have some issues. At least the worst issues are resolved here.

@matty1551

Your driver should load. Did you do these two things?

https://support.apple.com/en-lk/guide/mac-help/mchl768f7291/mac
Select reduced security and enable this:
Select the “Allow user management of kernel extensions from identified developers” checkbox to allow installation of software that uses legacy kernel extensions.

Did you "Allow" OWC as an identified developer?

@softraid-support it turns out reduced security was set to full. I'm unable to change it though. It keeps telling me my password incorrect. Im positive it's not though.
