Flex 8 and 2 Thunderbay 3 Bay's Are Paper Weights
Our team also wrote Dock Ejector and it has been extremely reliable and stable.
Next week I can ask if there are any similar reports, and we can go from there.
understood. I can assure you that caused the panic unfortunately
I spoke to engineering and confirmed we have no known kernel panic issues with Dock ejector. So we need more information.
1. can you run kextstat in the terminal, and find dock ejector? What version is loading? (I am assuming you are running 1.1.4)
2. Are you running Acronis on this system?
3. Can you send me a panic log and SoftRAID tech support file? (save the panic log by after a crash, you get the "report to Apple" dialog box option, click report, then details. Copy that text into a text edit file and attach it here.)
1. ran kextstat and dock ejector did not come up. Running 1.1.4 as shown from menu bar
We got a system in house that crashes and are working on it. I confirmed in my lab that this is only RAID 5, you can work around it by (temporarily) removing one disk from the array, and that it is indeed a macOS bug. We are going to work with Apple to find a fix for this.
Can you try this for me:
Uninstall Acronis (I see the System Interceptor extension)
Uninstall the hornDIS extension (I think an android phone extension)
Uninstall the wireless gaming controllers.
Do you still get the symptoms?
I would reinstall in the following order, assuming you need these (none of the drivers appear to be loaded)
and see which if any, are the triggers. I have this entered as a bug in our database in the meantime.
Another interesting thing, it is possible this is related to the M1 kernel panic issue with RAID 5, this is happening on the Thunderbolt bus on both issues.
@softraid-support that’s crazy that it’s showing I have Acronis I had never even heard of it until you mentioned it a few days ago. Definitely had never installed it and I’ve never owned an android phone either so I don’t know why I have the HoRNDIS either. I don’t need any of those things so I’ll try tonight getting rid of them.
Another comment regarding Dock Ejector.
I installed Dock Ejector on an M1 mini. Clean system except for SoftRAID.
Connected 16 drive in multiple Thunderbays.
Connected 2 USB external drives, one bus powered (high power port) and one wall powered.
I do not have a 4K monitor, however. But no issues, no unusual CPU usage, or Memory usage by Dock ejector. I can "eject" all devices, reliably and it is not crashing.
So let me know your test. Perchance do you have an older monitor you can test for a short while? I would be shocked if hte monitor was related, but it is the main difference between my setup and yours. I need more data on this Dock ejector issue before we can attempt a fix, as we need to be able to replicate it in house.
