The device locks up completely. Nothing on the serial port. It just hangs.
SSH locks ups, trying to ping or ssh back in results in timeouts. The
network activity light does flash though. Even the disk lights stop
working. The process starts with the resync going as expected with disk
lights flashing and then it just locks up.

I will need to get a machine that can take 4 sata drives but thats a good
idea. Will report back.

Then it locks after a while.
