Just upgraded to TOS 5 (v 5.0.135-00179) for TRAID. Installed 4 new (to the F5-221) and have a new storage pool building INCREDIBLY slowly....after 3 hours it is only at 6% complete. Is this expected?

It is a normal situation, the sync speed for a mechanical drive is about 150~200MB/s.

wow, disappointed from a consumer perspective

1) unbox my shiny new toy
2) install HDs
3) go into TOS, enable TRAID on them
4) wait [in my case] for days before it is initialized and able to put data on....

The newly created RAID needs to sync;
The mechanical drive is slow;

I am sorry, these are the facts we can NOT change at this moment.

newest TRAID issue.

pulled a 4TB drive to replace with a 10TB drive and expand the amount of storage.

storage pool reporting "RAID is degraded"
click edit
select "Repair RAID (repair RAID array after replacing the faulty hard drive(s))"
Next -> Next
select new HD (10TB drive)
click "Confirm"

no evidence anything happens.....tried multiple times.

Also just updated to newest OS image 5.0.144 and tried again.
