The LCD Display reads “unmatched.”
The RAID Level Selector Switch is not set to the level of the existing array. In the event that the RAID level does not correspond to both the disk settings and the RAID Level Switch Selectors, the LCD will display the following two alternating messages:
1. “RAID level” “Unmatched”
2. “Current: Rx” (i.e. the current RAID level settings of the installed disks) “Original: Rx” (i.e. the RAID level settings on the RAID Level Switch Selectors)
Example: The RAID Level Switch Selectors are positioned to indicate a RAID 0 setting, but the disks were set earlier as a RAID 5 array, the LCD will display the following two alternating messages:
1. “RAID Level” “Unmatched”
2. “Current: R5” “Original: R0” In this situation, the array will not function.
There are two options:
1. Shut down the LaCie RAID and re-position the RAID Level Switch Selectors to the previous RAID setting, in this case, RAID 5.
2. Re-insert the four drives, and re-create the array as a RAID 0 array.
If there is any data on the disks, it will be lost during the initialization.
