    Hi all,

    nice to be here ... I hope I will find help here with this problem. I am an absolute bloody beginner, so please do not lose sight of this. :D

    I have installed OMV on a mini-pc with an external USB 2-bay hard drive case with an integrated RAID controller, configured to RAID 1.
    :thumbup: This "case" is, as not expected otherwise, recognized as a single drive under: OMV > STORAGE> FILE SYSTEMS (btw. 1,79 TiB)

    So far, so good, but ...
    :thumbdown: at the startup I receive the here listed messages:
    mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically (maybe 10 - 15 times), followed by
    mdadm: error opening /dev/md?*: No such file or directory and again followed by
    mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically (8 times)

    Can someone help me to find a solution?

    Greetings! :)

    I would like your advise on the the best solution how to define my storage.
    I currently run OMV 3 with 3x3TB drives with RAID5 file system ext4.

    I want to add another 3TB that I already have but also don't want to continue with RAID5 or with ext4.

    I want the flexibility to grow my storage in the future with larger HDDs (not the same size) but also to be protected in cases when 1 drive may fails.

    My data is mostly static as I store pictures, documents, and Video files.

    Please help me understand what are the options.

    Thank you

    I have an Adaptec 8405 SGL inside the OMV server and can read out the smart values just fine with smartctl -d sat --all /dev/sg2 to ..16 - any chance to get the SMART panel in OMV populated with this info?

    1. # smartctl -d scsi --all /dev/sg16
    2. smartctl 6.6 2016-05-31 r4324 [x86_64-linux-4.14.0-0.bpo.3-amd64] (local build)
