RAID Rebuild or Drive Pool Expansion Failure


Install & Setup



Drives with mismatched firmware may cause failures:

  • Rebuilding a RAID array
  • Expanding a storage pool
  • Adding new drives to an existing storage pool
  • Other drive migration actions 

Ensure all your drives have the same firmware revision before adding them to a single storage pool. This is not a strict requirement, but rather a method for avoiding potential problems.
