Missing shares after unexpected unraid shutdown
Recently I had a power outage to my unRAID NAS server. After booting back up I was quite concerned when I browsed to the SAMBA location for the server and found no shares!
Thankfully, after waiting a few minutes (10-15) all shares were back 🙂 A parity check had automatically been initiated and I allowed it to complete. No errors were found.
A few other users reported that they had to reboot to have their shares appear. However, my recommendation (if you have the time) is to allow the server to stay up for 30 minutes or an hour if you experience missing shares after a power outage. Hopefully after that time you can refresh the listing in your SAMBA browser and unRAID will list ALL your shares 🙂
