      Yeah, I know who you're talking about - SHMBO.
      On my end, the situation is a bit different. She's Irish and since my heritage (way back) is traceable to England, it's almost a genetic imperative - I must "oppress". :) (And if you believe that...)

      I reran the the full mem-test and this time it was error free, row hammer tests and all. But, this time, I had the case fully assembled... (That sounds like voodoo BS, uh?) In the bottom line, there's no "there", there, so I'm a happy camper. I'll run it one more time with the X5660's installed to make sure their cache is OK.

      You could use snapshots for this too. Set a snapshot, try your test, rollback to the snapshot. This is supported in the free version.
      Sure, but one of the things I did with OMV in Virtualbox was, do the basic build, set up a bunch of virtual 5GB drives and clone it a few times. One clone was configured for mdadm RAID, the 2nd ZFS, the 3rd EXT4 and MergerFS+SNAPRAID, etc. Cloning is useful for branching a basic build into different directions and keeping them for testing. It certainly saves time.

      Proxmox seems interesting enough and there's more than a bit of reading to be done on :!: Ceph :!: . (As if ZFS wasn't enough.)

      :D :D I could get away with it if it was hidden away i.e in the loft, but due to the odds of 2 to 1 the loft and the best part of the garage is "storage" for their needs, I mean why/how is it that a female has a summer and winter wardrobe which, if one was not packed away would require copious amounts of storage in a bedroom. That's without the necessary shoe storage, that's a don't go there subject, so I have to think small and hope that it returns big, if not, live with what you've got.
      Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

      There's a LOT to absorb on the Ceph topic but, with the barest of overviews, it seems to be interesting. I'm not sure I could do much with a cluster configuration (who knows what could be done in VM's?) so I'll be looking at what can be done at the host level with 5 or 6 physical drives. That's the limiting factor and the the real expense - storage media.

      I'm taking a first look at OMV5 on Debian 10 (Buster). It's loading it into a VM. We'll see if there are any (BTRFS) surprises.

      Edit:
      Well that didn't work out very well. While going through the script process.....
