How to use a SoftRAID startup volume with High Sierra

If you're using High Sierra, and booting up from a SoftRAID volume, you'll need to follow the steps given in this forum post, since the macOS High Sierra Installer does not recognize SoftRAID volumes as valid startup volumes.

Keep using RAID 1+0 with missing enclosure?
#1
I'm using a pair of Thunderbays in a RAID 1+0, and I've been having issues with one of the enclosures (previously discussed here: [url]https://www.softraid.com/forum/archive/index.php?thread-950.html[/url])

I've arranged an RMA exchange with OWC for the faulty enclosure, but that will take a few days turnaround.

Question: Can I continue to use my RAID 1+0 with just the remaining enclosure? If I make sure all the primary disks are installed, it would basically be a RAID 0, no? Then when I get the new enclosure, I can reinstall the secondary disks and have SoftRAID do a rebuild.

Is that even advisable? I just looking for a way to keep working while I wait for the replacement.

Thanks.

Yes you can. When the new enclosure arrives, you can connect it and it should rebuild with no problem.

Stay backed up, but this should work fine!
