Pending Drive Add - going on 2 days now

Recommended Posts

Well its going on day 2 and my third drive is still pending adding. I'm not sure if this is normal or not but I have 2 2TB drives in the pool currently and I'm trying to add a 3rd 2TB drive. So there has been a little yellow exclamation over the 3rd drive along with the drive state saying 'pending drive add'.

 

Is this normal?

 

Also my log files have continued to grow, I've got 8 100mb log or .sil files and the latest one continues to keep growing in size. I also cannot create or copy any files to the pool, it just says 'you need permissions to perform this action'

 

Hopefully someone can help me figure out what is going on as I also have an open ticket for this issue.

Yea, I did this a few days ago and my drive still says its pending drive add. Also when adding a drive to the pool I'm using the option to format it. Should I just try and remove the drive, then merge the drive back in?

 

I just dont want to cancel the process if it will eventually finish.

After 2 days I definitely would give up on the possibility of it eventually finishing. I can't imaging anything that would possibly take this long!

 

Since you selected for the drive to be formatted I'm guessing there's nothing on the drive. I think I'd try removing the drive, format it outside of DB and then add it to the pool without a format.

I removed the drive, then in Windows drive manager deleted the partition, recreated a partition with a quick format and set it to a new drive letter. I then was able to get it added to the pool with no problems.

 

Not sure what the exact problem was but its working now.
