Data Vault X510 Slow

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

A few days ago I got my Data Vault X510 and it is running now :rolleyes: .

But even when I'm not doing anything on the box, the hard drive activity is very heavy. I've swapped the normal disk with a WD black 1Tb drive.

Also the network was slow, I've changed the auto negotiation to Gb/Full Duplex and set Jumbo frames on. Then I've got about 60Mb/s. But after putting some files (mp3 and jpg) on the server the networkspeed drops to about 10Mb/s and as I said the hard disk activity was increasing.

I know that the search indexer is running but for how long?

Does anyone got this same problem? Could it be that the WD Black is the bottleneck?

Best Regards,

Sander

I kind of have the same problem with me newly bought X311 with two 1 TB disks. I noticed when I transferred a large amount of files that the access to the NAS was very slow. Even opening a small jpg took forever. CPU and memory looked fine though.

Did you ever get your problem solved?

I just bought an X510 and after transferring my data from the backup drive into the shared folders, I've notice a huge increase in hard drive activity. It never stops crunching!

Did you ever get your problem solved?

To the best of my recollection, I never connected both of my backup drives to the server at the same time,  For test purposes, I just initiated a recovery (using the WHS Installation Disk) with each of them hooked up.  The one that has been offsite and the one that backed up last night were both found by the "Repair an existing installation" procedure.  Perhaps I'm misreading your clarification.
    • Please check if task scheduler is still working. If not use this tool here https://repairtasks.codeplex.com/ If that does not help you may try to reinstall WHS Connector.
    • My WHS v1 (home build) starting misbehaving and finally needed a new system disk.
      After lots of threads, trial and errors, AF and non-AF drives, and lack of the Server Reinstallation choice it has finally progressed.
      Weeks of frustration. My recent attempts proceeded well but all ended up without the rebuilding of the Storage Pool (6 drives).
      The drives are detected and show up as "not added" in Server Storage and as "non managed" in Disk Management.
      There is no C:\fs on the SYS volume.
      It appears that the RebuildPrimary stage of the reinstallation, mentioned by some posters, was not successful. Has anyone found a way to force the rebuilding of the Storage Pool on reinstallation?
      I have tried X: Files v1.5.5 and the original Microsoft Disk with the same outcome. [My next step will be to migrate the "shares" and "folders" manually - it would have be quicker to have done this initially.]
       
    • Hi, I can use all feature using the connector software in my local network. But when on the road, I connect via xxx.homeserver.com. Login works, can access my shared folders, but when I want to access the WHS 2011 Server Dashboard or my WHS 2011 Outlook, I got an error like this: The Computer can't connect with the Remotedesktop-Gatewayserver. Contact your network admin. (translated from german) . On an Windows 7 Home and on a 7 Pro Computer this worked. The same problem happens on my Windows 10 tablet. Only local working with the connector software. Windows 10 is version 1607. Any suggestions what this is?
    • Hello All, I've tried searching on the forum but was unable to find a good walk through on moving a whs V1 to new hardware. Many years ago now I built a server out of an old dell gx270.  That box is really showing its age and is having problems.  Currently the system will boot but it no longer has video and I have to remote into it to see anything. If memory serves me correctly there was a way to save a backup of the server data. Can I simply make this backup of the data and switch out the server hardware reattach the drives and load the backup? How do I get the existing computer backups to move across?   Thanks for any help you can provide.
