    Quote from mxyz: “Libre AML-S905X-CC because of the usb 3 and increased ram ” Wrong choice, there's no USB3, no Gigabit Ethernet, amount of RAM is close to irrelevant for the NAS use case and the only advantage of the AML-S905X-CC over RPi is that…

    The label of the drive has a space, which is not supported with ntfs. Change the label from "My Passport" to "MyPassport" or something else without a space inside.

    Confirmed. Volume label must be spaceless. It is simple to change it in Windows in "My computer" by clicking ones on external drive label. After that everything works.

    Thread
    Hi, everyone. I recently built my first openmediavault server with a raspberry pi 3b. I then found out that I'm limited to 11mb/second LAN speed because of usb 2.0 and the network hardware sharing the usb bus. I'm looking into alternatives and I'm…

    Replied to the thread mdadm: only give one device per ARRAY line: /dev/md0 and metadata-1.2.

    Post
    If anyone is curious, I found the error. In the ARRAY line in the mdadm.conf there was a typo.; "metadata-1.2" should be "metadata=1.2"... note the equal sign.
