Re: DS2600 Disk issue

D2600 jbod is LFF with 12 disks. Since, you are mentioning 19 disks, I am assuming you are cascading two jbods.And i believe the problem is with cascading. Can you please check cabling, if you have followed recommended cabling steps while cascading two or more jbods? At least " MISSING_IN_TOPOLOGY" message points towards that.
