Kernel Panics with RAID 0 on OWC Express 4M2
I have an OWC Express 4M2 with 4xSabrent Q Rocket Q 1TB NVMe. I've been using it for more than a year using Apple RAID but switched to SoftRAID when I needed it for another set of external drives. Once I switched, I started to get kernel panics in the IONVMeFamily driver. No reference to SoftRAID in the panic, just the Apple IONVMeFamily driver. This happened pretty much once every 24 hours for a week. I switched back to Apple RAID and everything has been stable for a couple of weeks now.
This is great information. DId you use the "Convert" command in SoftRAID to go to Apple's RAID? then we know it is the same inside the volume. Did you capture any of the crash logs? I would like to see on, along with a SoftRAID tech support file.
