As I've mentioned in another thread ( viewtopic.php?f=147&t=28086&p=206233#p206233 ), I believe there to be issues with the most recent version (2017.9.6). In UAS mode I have experienced errors which cause all mounted disks to unmount, necessitating a hard reboot; and when forcing usb-storage mode, after a day or two without issues, both of my CS2-attached disks now fail to report even their UUIDs.

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

As you can see, firmware release note of JSM561 on our wiki page, we had reported to the JMicron many times.
Before releasing the latest firmware, I have tested with CloudShell2 for a week. Maybe it is not enough to confirm all of the features.
Running in Openmediavault and PM mode (or RAID 1) at the same time and the other is our Ubuntu 16.04.2 minimal image and PM mode (or RAID 1).
It is still running without your situation.

There are different things between you and me like OS and some peripherals plug on.
Can you show me your Cloudshell2 environment more detail?
Are you using self-powered Hub? There are some issues related to power supply.
What OS do you use? I have never tested any another OS except with them.
How did you test? Samba, iozone, ...and so on.

Further system details:

Arch Linux
There is a USB3 hub attached to the XU4, but that's to connect an unrelated HDD dock. The CS2 is "directly" attached to the XU4.

I had the disks shared via NFS, and both had XFS filesystems on them. (JBOD)

As I detail in the other thread, there were actually two issues, and I'll summarise them here, in the hope that this minimises any further confusion.

---

Issue #1 - Spontaneous unmounting under heavy load.

After updating to the newest (UAS-enabling) firmware, I keep getting, usually after some load but in principle "randomly", I/O errors, followed by ALL disks (not just CS2-related) being hard-unmounted, necessitating a reboot for them to re-mount.

Journalctl output: https://ptpb.pw/a5gw.txt
Journalctl output (verbose): https://ptpb.pw/4drD.txt

More Journalctl output: https://ptpb.pw/xL60
Dmesg output: https://ptpb.pw/pLRF

Device list: viewtopic.php?f=147&t=28086&p=206233#p206110

More Dmesg output: https://ptpb.pw/PbCL


After some issues in disabling UAS for the CS2 (I had been forgetting to regenerate the boot.scr, for the kernel cmdline options to apply), the issue was alleviated, but then I got the second issue, which is below.

---

Issue #2 - Both CS2-attached disks fail to mount or even be detected.

Dmesg output: https://ptpb.pw/ImsW.txt
Journalctl output: https://ptpb.pw/jK0V

I had suspected this to be a further CS2 firmware issue, but this persisted after I downgraded to the previous version (the last one without UAS support).

It turns out that one of the two disks was dead, failing to work in any other enclosure or SATA port (and when connected to multi-bay adapters, also prevented all other disks from being detected, similar to when on the CS2). It seems as if the disk's controller is fried, rather than the disk itself.

Both attached disks were Seagate 8TB archive disks (SMR). Furthermore, the one which died turned out to be something akin to an engineering sample (i.e. not supposed to be sold to the general public), excluding it from official warranty. After indicating this to the seller, I was immediately offered a full refund. The other disk still works perfectly fine, but I'm going to phase it out of active use soon.

Since the disk failure happened after a chain of UAS-related issues on the CS2, I'm inclined to believe (but am of course totally unable to prove) that the CS2 firmware somehow induced this, in combination with the delicate manner in which SMR disks operate. It's also possible that Issue #1 is also somehow related to my using SMR disks, something which I may be able to later test - in the coming days I will be putting two new WD Reds onto the CS2, possibly even in a HW-RAID configuration, and could re-upgrade the CS2 firmware if I feel confident in testing.

Thanks for your testing.

As I said, I've never tested with Arch Linux O/S. and we don't have time to support another O/S.
With last f/w in JMS561(support uas), there is the known issue that is similar to yours.

Check the issue number 1 in this revision history.
https://wiki.odroid.com/accessory/add-o ... on_history
and the other.
https://wiki.odroid.com/accessory/add-o ... run_script

Can you try our Ubuntu minimal image to narrow down root causes?

Issue #1 on the odroid wiki page doesn't /seem/ relevant, and since it's only one sentence, it's hard as a reader to be sure anyway - is there any more supplementary info about this which is publicly available?

Regarding using the ubuntu minimal image, while certainly possible, I'm not sure when in the foreseeable future I'll be able to find the time. I'll get back to you here on that once I've had the chance.
