@softraid-support Great - my Mac & Thunderbay have been up and running for about 3 hours now.

Thanks for your help. Also for the info about macOS Ventura!

Hi Sorry didn't have time to try the workaround yet... in the meanwhile the solution I found is that still having my old Intel iMac I connect the drive to the Intel IMac and I share the drive from that computer ...

Will try later today. I'm not going to change the stripe I have more than 40T .. too much time consuming...

 

Thank you for the hint ! I also noticed that in my THunderbolt Chain I have 2 enclosures... one of them is always generating immediately the crash but if I connect only the 2nd one the system works... kind of weird.

@theubster 

Are both enclosures RAID 5? if not, that would make sense.

I also have 2 Thunderbay enclosures and both use Raid5 with 16KB stripe unit size. One of mine causes the crash and the other seems fine so far.

I don't know whats up with that.

As an update, the 'pull out a drive for 5' workaround worked fine for me as I often don't restart for days/weeks at a time. 

I updated to macOS 12.5.1 yesterday and didn't need the work around. Running for a day without any crashes.
