  • Reply to: Xsan Volume Failed to start after a power failure.   1 week 1 day ago

    Hello. After reboot of the installation complex. Has ceased to mount one of the volume:

    Xsanadmin (utro_02) > fsmlist
    FSM Processes on tp-mdc.tp

    utro[0]
    State: STOPPED (generated too many core files) 2017-05-19 17:03:33
    Last Admin: START 2017-05-19 17:03:02

    State: REGISTERED (no substate) 2017-05-19 11:28:14

    When I run through the console, the volume starts but after a while it stops again and in the logs the following errors:

    I tried to run the cvfsck utility, but the error is all inherently flawed:

    bash-3.2# cvfsck -wn utro
    Checked Build disabled - default.

    • Fatal*: Stripe group 'MetadataAndJournal' size has changed from 4194294 blocks to 3686390 blocks
    • Warning*: Error initializing shared metadata stripe group 'MetadataAndJournal' - Invalid argument
    • Critical*: File System Read-Only Check finished - with errors.

    cvfsck total elapsed time: 0.07 seconds total
    bash-3.2#

    Whether prompt it is possible as that to restore volume or at least as that to restore the data? I will be very grateful for any advice and help...

  • Reply to: El Capitan - Automount   2 weeks 3 days ago

    I tried the Apple Launchd fix but it dd not work for me... but it gave me an idea. I found an easy solution that seems to work 100% of the time. I made an Automator Script...

    The first step is to Pause for 180 seconds
    The second step is to Run Shell Script with the following command xsanctl mount VolumeNmae

    Note: Replace VolumeName with the name of your XSAN volume.

    I then added it as a login item. Let me know if you would like a copy of the Automator action and I will email it to you.

  • Reply to: Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED Xsanity   2 weeks 4 days ago

    Hello,

    I manage the systems at a small video production facility and have relied on Xsanity as a great resource for quite some time. I know that with all the changes Apple has made over the past 4 or so years, many folks have moved away from Xsan and Apple Server to other solutions. Because of this it's evident that Xsanity does not get as much traffic as it once did. I thought I would check in on the status and future of Xsanity. Are there any plans or direction set for the future? I've noticed that I seem to be unable to make any new posts other than commenting on exiting ones. Is the forum now closed/archived for good?

  • Reply to: Xserve Firmware   1 month 2 days ago

    Hi MJSANDERS,

    Know this is an old thread but I am also looking for this firmware version.
    I have recently acquired a few Xraid and installed some 1TB drive with a sata adapter
    1 unit shows the drives/array fine and has the firmware 1.5.1f2/1.51b
    The other shows the array within Raid admin but wont prompt to initialise.
    The only difference that i can see is that the Raid firmware for this XServe Raid is 1.51c

    If you have a copy of this version or are aware of a work around or any tips that would be appreciated.

    Regards
    Adam

    After wrestling with not being able to activate my Xsan volume after upgrading to El Capitan 10.11.6 I finally discovered that it was due to OS Server app 5.2

    If you are having the same issue try using OS Server app 5.1.7, it worked for me.

    I've managed to get the LSI cards working by flashing Apple firmware into them. Alas, the only Apple cards I've got have firmware older than 1.03.23. (1.03.20) Can anyone dump 1.03.23 firmware and throw it at me?

    Hi,
    can you dump the firmware and share it?
