      Hello,

      maybe I'm the only one having this issue, but having read some threads, I doubt this.

      I startet with a RAID-5 consisting of 3x4TB hdds and everything was fine.
      After some days I added another 4TB hdd and expanded the RAID and after doing this I expanded the filesystem. Because nothing happened expanding the filesystem I took a look and found that the new hdd was configured as hot spare.

      Could you please give the user the option to choose between adding the new hdd(s) as hot spare or using the hdd directly in the RAID?

      I think when using OMV and the GUI - which I like very much - there should be no need using the console to correct this issue with the following command:


      Source Code

      1. mdadm --grow /dev/md0 --raid-devices=4

      Or did I miss something and there already is a better approach adding hdds to a RAID5 in OMV3?


      Kindest regards tsch
