I hate jumping in like this out of the blue, but time is not on my side
atm with a lot going on.
I have a problem with some devices disappearing on various versions of
FreeBSD and machines (laptops, workstations/servers). Umass are the
norm, with the message occurring most on usb sticks and sd cards.
Big problem atm is that my file server has a failed disk in the raid,
and I've tried replacing it with a new drive (twice now), and both times
it begins to resilver and then it is "REMOVED". If I online it again, it
goes for about 10mins then REMOVED again.
Dmesg shows that the device is removed from the devfs with a
passdevgonecb/lost device message. This apparently occurs right at boot
too, as it shows amongst the usual scrolling during boot.
I had a chat with someone and they mentioned the cable and/or controller
could be the issue. Could anyone add any insight or tests I could do?
I'm not exactly claim to be an expert at zfs, so maybe something might
need addressing there too.
I'd particularly appreciate a means of testing the controller.
ATM the main theory is to replace the board - not a happy thought! :/
