I've defined 3 disks in a raid-5 with the following raid config file :
1 3 0
# sectPerSU SUsPerParityUnit SUsPerReconUnit RAID_level
32 1 1 5
which works fine. I also did the raidctl(s) to initialize the
raidframe driver and initialize the parity info (takes about
an hour). However, that all worked. Then I made a file system
on the resulting raid device (newfs -b 8192 -f 1024 -c 32 /dev/rraid0b).
That also takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Then I mounted it, and
everything seems to work. Great! Then I try a simple command:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/space/test1 bs=256k count=1024
The raid device started recording data and then just stopped. Any
attempt to look at that file system or raid device just hangs.
Am I doing something obviously wrong?
