Seems like a pretty big problem for SoftRAID. Anyway, the title says it. Help.

I'm running Big Sur, OS 11.2.3 on a M1 Mini. 

Enclosure: OWC Express 4M2 (purchased new from macsales.com).

SoftRAID 6.0.1 Lite XT

You must upgrade to the Big Sur public beta 11.3.  otherwise a bug in Big Sure prevents the SoftRAID driver from working.

Wow, you're actually telling people to run beta OS.

Until Apple fixes this bug, there is nothing else we can offer. the process of downgrading to 11.1 is painful and undoes bug fixes such as to bluetooth.

 

This is our solution to the Kobayashi Maru scenario. That is what Kirk did after all, he installed a beta!

I'm new to RAID management and getting this exact same error message on Catalina 10.15.7, running a brand new ThunderBay Flex 8 --- any workaround for this without updating the OS to Big Sur beta 11.3?  After receiving some tech support via email on how to begin configuring my setup, I just now deleted the RAID 5 volume it shipped with, so that's gone and I am unable to create another.

You should not have to upgrade to Big Sur. Did you try this:

Thanks. It was Secure Boot. Once I disabled that, I was able to create volumes

Is it stil a bug with Big Sur?

I run version 11.6 and have the same problem, I have tried all the proposed solutions and nothing works.

SoftRAID 6.2 should work. If not, save a SoftRAID tech support file and attach it here.

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.

When you did the driver update, did you go to System Preferences / Security to "Allow" OWC as an identified developer?
