This Article covers all the basic functions we use inside RAID for the large-format Abekas products (Tria,Kiva, Mira).
Note: Mira Express, Tria Express, Tria News, and AirCleaner do not have RAIDs.
Note: If a RAID Rebuild does not correct the issue or you need further assistance, please contact Technical Support at the following link: Open Support Ticket
- To Access the RAID controller, in a web browser, enter the IP 127.0.0.1:82. (This will already be bookmarked in Windows Internet Explorer.)
- In Windows Security, enter the credentials:
- User: Admin
- Password: [No Password]
- If this for some reason has been defaulted, and leaving the password blank doesn't work, the default password for these RAID systems is 0000.
- Once logged on, this is what you will see. If you ever need to go back to this page you can refresh the browser.
- The RAID Set section tells you if the RAID Set is Normal, Degraded, or Rebuilding.
- This page also indicates which drive has failed.
If the alarm is beeping while you are working on the RAID, you can silence it.
- In System Controls, System Configuration, set System Beeper Setting to Disable.
- Beside Confirm The Operation, select the check box.
- Click Submit.
Important: After the rebuild, remember to turn the alarm on again.
- If a disk has failed, in the Physical Drives section of the RAID controller, activate the failed disk.
- If the disk is not failed, but is degraded or is missing from the RAID set with another message stating it is not in its proper state, select Set Disk To Be Failed prior to activating the Failed Drive.
Note: Select the check box beside Confirm The Operation for all actions done in the RAID GUI.
Important: You can operate your Abekas Server while a drive is Degraded or Rebuilding
- If a drive was not able to rebuild, or if it degrades/fails again shortly after a rebuild, you will need to replace it.
- You can replace a drive while the machine is still operating.
- To ensure you are replacing the correct drive, on the main page, take note of which drive is failing.
- Navigate to the Identify Drive section.
- Select the correct drive. On front of the drive you have selected, the light will be on.
- When you are installing the replaced drive back into the machine, the RAID should automatically start the rebuild.
- If you refresh the browser, you will see this status on the main page.
- If the RAID did not automatically start the rebuild, select Activate Failed Disk.
