FreeNAS will not acknowledge the failed drive since the disk is not "detached" from the controller in the software sense.

Presumably this is because these controllers do not support hot swap on FreeBSD. The only way you will be able to acknowledge that a disk is failed is possibly a local LED one disk does not have any activity while the rest of the drives dodoing a 'zfs status -v' and noticing that one drive has a lot of errors, audible alarm or if you reboot the machine. Note that the zpool status will not change until Highpoint RocketRAID 2300 Controller reboot, but I'd expect that the audible alarm will get your attention rather quickly.

Highpoint RocketRAID 2300 Controller very loud and quite annoying. Overall, if you have the audible alarm enabled that should provide sufficient warning that a drive has failed. Since hot-swap is not supported you will need to shutdown the server, insert a new hard drive then power up the server and add the new hard drive to the zpool per the FreeNAS manual. To perform the workaround you will need to connect each hard disk to a standard SATA controller to create the partition table entry.

After the entry is created you can then remove the drive and it will function correctly as a "Legacy Disk" on the Highpoint controller. If you plug in a hard drive that is blank aka no partition table at all it will be identified as "New" to the controller.


My computer panic'd during bootup anytime a "New" hard drive was attached to my and Because of this you MUST connect the hard drive to a different controller onboard recommended to setup the partition. Determine which device your hard drive is assigned to.

Use the 'dmesg' command to view the devices. My devices are always adaX or daX. For the following example my hard drive was ada1: At a console, type the following commands. If you have data on the hard Highpoint RocketRAID 2300 Controller make sure you backup the data as these commands will erase all data on the hard drives. Then you've got middle of the road RAID cards. These add features such as enclosure-support, warning buzzers and, often, some more sophisticated management software. However, they're still not likely to do all of the RAID work themselves, even though they may Highpoint RocketRAID 2300 Controller some of the burden away from the CPU.


Finally, there's the enterprise-class of RAID controller - the canine's cuddle conkers of storage cards. These puppies do the lot and don't give the CPU a look-in. This means they deliver the best performance by far in the majority of situations. I think the RocketRAID bios provides some Highpoint RocketRAID 2300 Controller of native, transparent, interface for drives outside RR arrays and this is why Linux is able to see them.
