  1. Hello,


    I cloned my system disk to a new install, and most things went well.


    Except, after reboot there are no shares (all on pool) exported



    Then I run the WSS Troubleshooter and the share are exported correctly to my clients,

    though the Dashboard says the shares are still missing and gives a critical error.


    And it seems the shares stick until next reboot.


    thanks in advance



  2. Hello,


    I have cloned my old WHS to new hardware and trying to transfer my license.


    I deactivated on the old hardware, and the clicked "Start license transfer..."


    License transfer seems to be OK:





    But still it doesn't seem to be activated:





    Same goes for StableBit Scanner.


    I've tried to reboot.


    How do transfer my license successfully?


    Thanks in advance




    Edit: Sorry wrong forum, but the same problem for Scanner, so I guess it's relevant anyway.

  3. It did come back the other day. And it was the same two files as before.


    But I solved it the same way as the first time.


    Next time I'll let you know and upload the logs.




    Well, checking again after work, the warning has came up again for the third time, with the same files

    as previous both times.


    New log files uploaded.



  4. Glad to hear it.


    If the issue does come back, please let us know (and see about getting the log files, if possible).

  5. More info:


    Browsing through the event logs, I noticed these two errors:


    1. The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk9\DR2871.

    2. The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk7\DR7.


    I guess the errors could be related to the DP warnings?



  6. Reading through your answer again I realized you wanted the hardware Id for the controller,

    and by looking on the disk's parent, as in:




    I think I identified the correct USB Mass Storage Device as in:




    Is that what you wanted me to find out?




    If that's the case, then it looks like it's passing on the SMART information but it's truncating the actual attributes.


    You see the two methods it lists at the bottom? Could you enable the "Specific Method" option, and check both of these to see if it shows the SMART attributes?


    Same result for both methods,ScsiPassthrough and ScasiPassthrough48, empty S.M.A.R.T Attributes list.


    Couldn't really find the disk with your method. I get the following view from "devmgmt.msc":





    But if I select the disk from the default view, and select properties I get these hardware Id's;




    Are they the ones you are asking for?



  8. Further information:


    When I retrieve the S.M.A.R.T Attributes list I get the following output:


      Smart attributes for device:   9
      Version:   0
      Offline data collection status:   NeverStartted
      Self-test execution status:   PreviousCompletedNoErorrOrNoTestRun
      Self-test percent remaining:   0
      To complete off-line data collection:   00:00:00
      Off-line data collection capability:   0
      SMART capability:   0
      Error logging capability:   False
      Short self-test polling time:   00:00:00
      Extended self-test polling time:   00:00:00
      Conveyance self-test polling time:   00:00:00
      Attributes:   0
      Checksum valid:   True


    Doesn't look that promising?



  9. Yes it is the same USB controller (since it is the same cabinet/case?)


    So you think the controller doesn't work with disks > 2TB, well perhaps.


    Anyway here is a screenshot of the DirectIoTest app with USB option checked.




    It seems that it is receiving S.M.A.R.T data OK?


    thanks for looking into this.


    BTW querying the 2TB disk in the same case, I get identical output except for S.M.A.R.T Error log is supported.





    Well, bringing up an old thread with my problems.


    I resigned and accepted that my Seagate 4TB was not offering S.M.A.R.T data through the controller.


    But yesterday I ripped a Seagate 2TB Expansion disk from it casing and put into my USB 3 cabinet

    and Stablebit Scanner is pulling S.M.A.R.T data  from that disk with no problem.


    It is the 2 bottom disk in attached screenshot:





    Why can't Stablebit Scanner get  S.M.A.R.T data from the 4 TB disk?


    Thanks in advance




  11. It almost appears as if balancing/checking/duplicating runs sooo deep in the background that it hardly takes any resources at all. It would be helpfull if, one way or the other, a user could temporarily allow DP high priority or something. That is assuming my impressions are anywhere near correct of course.


    I replaced a 2 TB disk and my pool had to be re-duplicated, and it took ages.


    But asking/looking in this forum a found a DP config file setting that would let the

    duplication process run with higher priority, Sorry I don't remember the settings name,

    but search the forum.


    Then the duplication ended within hours.


    So I think default priority is too low.





  12. How is the disk attached?

    Is it connected to an Add-on controller card?




    I have the disk in an external SSI SI-1359RUS3 5 bay chassi which have a JMicron JMB539/JMB393 controller

    and I have it connected through USB3..


    I will try your suggestions and get back with results.




    Alternatively, you can try this:


    Try it with UnsafeDirectIo unchecked. If the "SMART Attributes" in WMI *and* DirectIO don't work, check the "UnsafeDirectIo" box. If that does get a green check for either one of those, look at the bottom and report the "Methods:" used.


    But the drive itself should be supported.


    Your config file did not make any difference, unfortunately.



    I have attached a screenshot of the DirectIoTest-1_0_5016_597.exe  output.


    I looks as I could get SMART data, or?




  13. I've just bought and installed one of them, but no SMART statistics.


    I only get non-manufacturer specific output (none in fact) from  Stablebit Scanner.


    I have enabled UnsafeDirectIo in the config file, but no change.


    Is the disk supported?

    If not, will it be supported?


    thanks in advance



  14. Hello


    a couple a days ago I got a Stablebit Scanner warning of

    unreadable sectors of one of my disks. I removed it without

    recreating duplicates My pool became rather full. And since then

    "Duplicating" in the GUI seems stuck on ¨1.6%.


    I found this in the DrivePool service log:


    DrivePool.Service.exe Warning 0 [FileBalance] Cannot balance. Requested critical only. 2013-12-08 23:59:58Z 312757235620

    I know my pool is nearly full, and I plan to extend it with 4 TB.


    Will duplication finish when I extend my pool?


    Should I concern?


    DrivePool version on WHS 2011


    thanks in advance
