Hi Guy's,

Help me please i have a big issues with my hard disks.

First: today when i start my mac mini M1 it start until i put my login password 10 second and restart and then again same restart issue until i remove the thunderbolt 3 cable from my owc 4 bay.

Second: Before one week i receive owc Express 4 m.2 with 4 samsung 980 1 TB, when i connect it and format it via softraid 6.2 it give me write speed 2.600 MB and the read 600-700 MB,

The macsales support tell me to format it by mac disk utility, once i click format in disk utility my mac mini shutdown.
i try to format it by my macbook air m1 one by one and the speed 700 MB each but when i make it raid 0 it give me same speed (write speed 2.600 MB and the read 600-700 MB).

Now i realize from the first time i connect the express 4 M.2 and format it via my mac mini withe softraid 6.2,

My system become unstable and today my mac keep restarting..

I will tell you what i am using to connect my system, maybe i am make something wrong with my system.

I have 3 owc (4bay thunderbolt 3) with raid 5.
I have two seagate 8 TB usb 3
I have one WD 12 TB
I have OWC Envoy Pro EX 2 TB
Two thunderbolt Dock station 1-(plugable thunderbolt 3)
2-( Sonnet Echo Thunderbolt 4).

First problem is the crashing. this is caused by some macOS setting, preference or something in the OS, that cause the thunderbolt bus to crash. First thing to try is a 6.2.1 beta of SoftRAID. It may resolve this. Use uninstall SoftRAID, utilities menu, then install 6.2.1 driver, and make sure you "Allow" OWC as an identified develper again.

http://www.softraid.com/sr_beta

If this does not work, let me know, there are a couple other things to do.

The next problem may be a Disk Utility problem. "Zero disks" with SoftRAID, so the disks are blank. Then you can erase with Disk utility. I would not bother.

This issue is not SoftRAID.

If you are getting slow reads, it has to be hardware. A quick test is take each disk and "verify" with SoftRAID. Run the Activity Monitor application (Application/utilities folder) click on the disk tab and watch for a few minutes. What read speed are you getting? then cancel (in SoftRAID) the verify, and try the next disk.

This will tell you the total read speed of each blade. (actually each PCI channel, as the drives should be faster than the PCI buses) Each disk should do 600-700 MB/s. If not, you have bad blades.

 

Create a new RAID 0 volume. What do you get?

This volume is not full of data, correct? Delete the volume if you can easily do so and create it as a RAID 4 volume. (For flash RAID 4 is faster than RAID 5)

Then you won't have the crash.

In Activity Monitor, you had it, the speed is at the bottom of the page in the chart. (It was easy to miss, I should have mentioned where to look)

"verify" each disk, let it run for a couple minutes, then watch the numbers below. You should get speeds on all 4 blades that are comparable. (Cancel the verify in the Utilities menu in SoftRAID)

 

The net read speed should be close to 3X

Another read speed test you can do is "validate" the volume. This should give close to the fastest read speed for the volume.

Hi,

I just finish make it raid 4 with all your steps and these is the final speed.

These is the second issue you fix it for me ( I am ok with these read speed but i did not expected)

 

What about my two enclosure hard disks bay that i can not fix them with the beta,

once i connect them 5-7 Second it shutdown and start restarting again and again.

 

Help me please i need the other hard disk for my work.

The problem is a difficult one, there is no simple fix.

Here are the options:

SoftRAID 6.2.1 beta (about 50% successful)

Clean install of macOS - do not migrate from another system (Mostly works)

Change to RAID 4 (almost always works)

Remove one disk from the RAID when connecting the array (Seems to work 90% of time)
when you do this, just pull the drive out 1", then after a couple minutes, you can insert the drive and it will rebuild and be OK.

We hope we get a fix soon, Apple engineering is also working directly on this.

Greetings..

 

I'm tagging on the end of this subject because I'm having Big Problems with my Mac mini M1.

Long story short -

 

1. Monterey 12.01 seems to support SoftRaid 6.2 w driver 6.2, but 12.1 won't. The RAID (a 4M2 enclosure directly connected to the M1) won't mount. It never mounted, regardless. But it mounted and worked under 12.01. Oh, the blessings of external boot drives.

2. The mounted RAID failed (drive not responding etc) after not very much time at all.

3. a 6-core i5 2018 Mac mini using 12.1 seems to be stably driving two thunder bay Mini enclosures. One is RAID 0+1, with 4 2TB spinning drives. The other is a RAID 5 with four 2TB spinning drives. This is used for backup from the M1. The RAIDS are both HFS+

4. I destroyed the 4M2 RAID, reorganized it as one 1 TB boot rive plus 3 separate drives, one for ordinary work, one for music and one for photographs. I repopulated these partly from the M1's internal drive and partly from the i5 file server over the network, using Carbon Copy Cloner.

5. I have taught CCC to back up stuff onto a separate SATA flash drive attached to the M1 and from there over the network to folders on the RAID 1+0. On the i5, CCC backs up the RAID 1 + 0 to the RAID 5. This works fine.

Conclusions:

- Monterey 12.1 and Mac mini M1 and SoftRaid 6.2 have a basic compatibility problem

- SoftRAID 6.2 has a problem (even on 12.01 and earlier) driving the 4M2 - where the drives are APFS-formatted. I don't know whether it's an APFS problem, or an M2 flash problem, or an enclosure problem - but the 4M2 enclosure used as a RAID has 'always' had problems and has always been APFS-formatted. 

- the M1 is much much happier driving the 4M2 as separate drives and with SoftRAID's driver uninstalled, so 12.1 is using the drives in a native manner. A few terabytes have been flung around and all the drives in the enclosure remain present and responsive. So that points at SoftRAID as a probable problem.

You should be able to experiment and replicate the situation :-)

Hope this all helps.

@petewilson 

When you installed 12.1, did you specifically "Allow" OWC as an identified developer? there was no driver change in 12.1, so it will work the same as 12.0. This is the most likely issue.

2. I do not understand this, can you be more detailed: The mounted RAID failed (drive not responding etc) after not very much time at all.
If you mean a disk hung, capture a SoftRAID tech support file and I can take a look.

What drives are in the 4M2? I do a lot of testing, but mostly with either the Phison P12 blades, or some older Samsung blades (Brand new Samsungs often have macOS compatibility issues, until Samsung updates the firmware.)

 

Can you describe the M1 issues? Are there panics? Are you getting disk ejected messages?

 

thanks

Thanks for response.

1. I didn't 'allow' OWC as developer on either the i5 nor the M1 mini. Was never offered an opportunity, but on the i5 all worked and on the M1, nyet.

2. The drives in the 4M2 are all Aura Pro 2TB drives (except for 1 1TB Aura Pro; Apple (as you know) doesn't allow booting from a RAID, so the 2TB drives are for capacity, the the 1 TB for booting. I feel safer with a replaceable external boot drive.... I had no experience with M2s, so I thought single stop shopping was best.

3. With all the changes, I'm afraid I no longer have an M1 SoftRAID log, so I can't send it. The RAID failure was sufficient to crash the machine; it wasn't just a stall and a degraded RAID.

I realize this info is really fuzzy - please look at it as just - perhaps it's helpful background info: perhaps there's a problem here, and it's just a breadcrumb more to help you discover what. I do find it vaguely surprising that a block-level driver knows anything about the file system - I'd have thought that SoftRaid was completely indifferent to the file system on the RAID, but then I'm full of theory and no actual info :-(

To be clear, I'm not asking for help to fix the apparent problem, just providing you (fuzzy) info. For the moment, I'm completely avoiding SoftRaid on the M1. It might be fine with HFS+ disks, but APFS seems the natural one for SSDs. I guess I'll be keeping a couple of Intel Mini's around for a while... I'm not planning on reverting from separate drives to a RAID for the immediate future.

It's possible of course that the problem is the enclosure, and/or the M2 drives, and/or the cable, and/or the M1, and/or the stupid owner. If further problems develop, I'll keep you informed (with logs where possible)

Thanks again

Thanks for the info. The SoftRAID driver does NOT know or care about the file system, to confirm your thinking.

There should not be issues in your scenario, so I can look into what you have and test for issues, but if you get more info, feel free to share.

 

Flash drives should use APFS. I have not seen any special issues with APFS, outside of a known bug in encryption we are waiting for a fix for.

 

On the M1 driver, there is a trick, perhaps you missed, to enable third party developers:

Did you do this?
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.

Lastly, on the i5, send a support file. I am curious if you have the correct version of the SoftRAID driver loading. You definitely should have had the option to "Allow", or 6.2 driver will not be loading.

You cannot "convert" different RAID levels.

Delete the RAID 5 volume, and create a new RAID 4 volume.

I have one 9 TB and 12 TB data inside, 

if i delete the raid 5 does it erase my data?

Does it mean that i have to format it?

Cautious. Yes you must delete a volume (wiping out all data) before you can create a new volume.
