      Hi,

      This board apparatantly has/had several openmediavault users, so maybe someone tried the following:

      this board has 4x sata + 1x esata, can i use them all at once, or does the esata share a port somehow? the manual and the internet were inconclusive, so i guess it should work, but before i buy a esata to sata cable.........

      anyone?
    • Yes you can and its supports port multiplier.. I have used it for this and it certainly worked for me. Before installing OMV, ensure you enter the BIOS and set the drives to AHCI.
      HP N54L Microserver, 20Gb Intel SSD, 4Gb RAM runing OMV 3.X
      HP N54L Microserver 20Gb Intel SSD, 8Gb RAM running OMV 3.X
      and loads of other PC's and NAS... OMV by far the best....
      (P.S. I hate Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 Vista, XP, 2K, ME, 98se, 98 and 95 - I have lost hours of my life to this windows virus)

      thank you for letting me know! I have ordered a cable!

      I accidentally already installed OMV completely in IDE mode, then switched to AHCI later......... so far so good
    • If you have the space in your case, you can get a simple bracket with built-in SATA-eSATA adapter, so no special cables required. This is the one I bought, and it works great:

      OMV 4.1.4-1 (Arrakis); Shuttle XPC SH67H3; Intel Core i5-2390T; 8 GB DDR3-1333 RAM; 128GB SanDisk Z400s SSD (OS); SanDisk Ultra II 480GB SDSSDHII480G SSD (primary storage); WD Blue 1TB WD10EZEX x2 in RAID 1 (backup storage).
    • I had basically the same issue and the reason I opted for the adapter was so I can run any eSATA cable from the eSATA port to the adapter, then any SATA cable from the adapter to a SATA port. Plus, I didn't have to figure out how to get a cable from outside the case to inside the case.
