I am working on a test eos system. I have 36 disks across three FSTs (12 disks per FST). I would like to have a raid5 (n+1) setup which should be possible with n=2 since I have three disks per scheduling group. So I set nstripes=2. When I try to copy files to my system I get an error and on the FSTs I see:
210705 15:13:06 time=1625523186.251065 func=Open level=ERROR logid=2c694f58-ddde-11eb-9871-fa163ebb7aaa firstname.lastname@example.org:1095 tid=00007f5e9d8fc700 source=RainMetaLayout:123 tident=mfens98.233021:84@otter sec=unix uid=0 gid=0 name=mfens98 geo="" msg=“failed open, stripe size must be at least 6” stripe_size=1
This error does not make sense to me since I have nstripes set to 2 not 1.
Please help me to understand the what nstripes actually means and if I am implementing it correctly and if there are other configuration settings I need to change.
