#63 v0.65: Raid not mounted after reboot

v0.65

Have FreeNAS v0.65 installed on a Vmware server;
config on IDE/ad0
3xSCSI 102MB RAID5 (da0/da1/da2)

In v0.65 I could finally get the RAID5 up and running.
I can mount the RAID5 and everything works excellent
until I reboot the system. The mount goes into
ERROR-retry and will never come up. The only workaround
I found is to redo the whole procedure (add disk/format
disk/add RAID/format RAID/mount RAID).
Directory /mnt is empty.

Keep up the good work on FreeNAS!

    I Have the same situation...

    Oliver, Have you consider using mdadm for softraid, this
    software have more features e and more stable than Gvinum.

    On the current version of freenas, Gvinum takes a lot of
    disks space to do a raid x.

    Same Problem here:
    v.065 Raid not mounted after reboot
    Have FreeNAS v.065 installed on P4 1.5 512MB Asus P4C800
    3* WD HDD80 Caviar II PATA
    After reboot RAID down.

    FreeBSD is in all my servers with 'atacontrol'
    In 2 years VINUM and GVINUM did give me so many headaches!
    I lost thousand of files because of them.

    I use m0n0 since 1 year and found it fantastic

    FreeNAS fantastic idea too.
    But sorry guys, I will return to use FreeNAS only if you
    switch away from VINUM's family!
    For the moment I switch back to FreeBSD.
    I'm using 'atacontrol' (FreeBSD 6.x) and found much more
    stable than GVINUM!

    Anyway thanks and great job guys!

    This problem also exist in RAID 1 (software raid) config
    too. But only need to force drives up from stale. The retry
    on mounting point

    Gmirror, gstripe, gconcat and graid5 added on the latest release (since 0.681b).
    It should be more stable.
