5 with 5 Seagate ST31500341AS sata drives
P/N: 9JU138-568 F/W:CC3H
for Lacie NAS
Array, 2 failed drives.
- step 1: Label
the hard drives in the Lacie Box
- step 2: For
complete Backup, duplicate each hard drive separately.
Both failed hard drives had firmware issues that
bricked the drives. Since we could not determine which hard disk failed
first, we un-bricked both disk drives and cloned them.
- step 3: After
cloning, we replaced one of the drives at random and powered up the
Lacie with 4 out of the 5 hard drives.
50% chance but if we're wrong, we restore from the
backup and try the other restored drive.
- step 4:
The Lacie_5bigNetwork booted up normally with all the data intact..
- step 5:
We replaced the last failed hard drive with a new hard drive and rebuilt
the Raid Array.
- Final repairs: Replace all the unreliable bricked
