External USB RAID box is not recognized

I am trying to plug a Sharkoon 8-bay box to the Turris using USB (turris don’t hava sata port). The box is recognized as

Bus 004 Device 002: ID 152d:0539 JMicron Technology Corp. / JMicron USA Technology Corp. JMS539 SuperSpeed SATA II 3.0G Bridge

but i can’t figure out how to mount it as a HDD.

Can you paste the output of lsblk?


root@turris:~# lsblk
sda 8:0 0 931.5G 0 disk
└─sda1 8:1 0 931.5G 0 part /tmp/run/mountd/sda1
mmcblk0rpmb 179:24 0 4M 0 disk

Does your RAID box have 1T storage? Because I see something there as sda. Please also paste the output of findmnt.

Hi, sorry for late answer, I don’t get the subscription mails alerts.

My raid has 14TB available, it is a 8x2TB box. The 1TB HDD is a single USB disk I also have connected to the router.

Here you got the findmnt output:

root@turris:~# findmnt

The USB RAID box is not even seen by the kernel. Can you post lsusb and the output of dmesg before and after plugging it in?
