Promise Pegasus Daemon Cannot Start
September 1, 2011
The Promise Utility main screen, once it finally works. At work we wanted to build a cheap network attached storage with a fair amount of space and some expandability. We decided that the easiest route was a Mac Mini Server with the new Thunderbolt compatible Promise Pegasus R6 RAID array. The solution is effectively plug-and-play. You turn on the RAID, plug in the Thunderbolt cable, and a new hard drive shows up on your Mac. While not required, the Pegasus comes with the “Promise Utility” that allows you to monitor your RAID. I’m a sucker for little toys like this, so I installed it… and was very disappointed when it didn’t work.
