Trusty old NAS4Free Server died on overfill

#1

Post by Desertsweeper » 14 Jun 2019 10:05

I built the beautiful thing many years back and just never touched it - it has run flawlessly now for longer than I can remember. And of course why touch what works right...

5 x 6GB WD Red's in a little HP Proliant N36L in RAID5 that boots of a USB stick running 9.2.0.1 - Shigawire (revision 972)
Was copying a large 4K video file to it from my GoPro when the copy bombed out and my pc lost the file-share.
Connected a monitor to the box in my store and it was doing a data verify - ran for about 36 Hours and finished with "Complete". Plugged in a Keyboard and type "Reboot" and it rebooted...but fails to start. See attached image:

I believe the image does not
I am guessing that I maxed the storage out. If only I could boot it and delete something...any suggestions? I do have an identical second box that I turn on once a month and slurp all my data onto - as a backup - so I am not destroyed, but would lose several weeks of awesome extreme biking footage that I would love to recover...When I look at the backup box I see that indeed it as almost reached full capacity so I tipped the master unit over the edge in the last few weeks

Yes I figured the screenshot was not showing - but now I think it's there. I have nothing at all - built this box I guess about 6 years back. I have the original 9.2.0.1 CD I used to install them at the the time - if that is of any use?

I booted off the original CD I used to install the USB stick so it is the exact same version. I set an IP address and was able to login. I went to Disks>Management>Clear Config and Import Software Raid Disks.
The table shows my 5 drives ada0 through ada4. The FileSystem column shows SofRaid for all but disk ada1 that states: "Unknown or unformatted"
It definitely completed the rebuild-verify after it crashed
Do I proceed with it in this condition (I assume it i has degraded)?

I shut it down, booted it up again and retried. This time it nly brings in the 4 active disks. When I try to mount it gives an error. Since I have 4 out 5 drives in RAID5 I should be able to get my data...so long as I don't lose another.
Can anyone tell me how to do the FSCK on a RAID5 array drive that cannot be mounted (I get: Filesystem is not clean - run fsck)?
I have attached the log file

You might want to try this viewtopic.php?t=11543
And googling "GEOM_RAID5 fsck" seems to get some hits.
