Replacing faulty mainboard: Any gotchas?

    • Replacing faulty mainboard: Any gotchas?

      Hi All,

      I've been running my NAS on a Asrock Q1900-itx based system for years, however the mainboard has today called it quits. Ideally I'd replace with a new low voltage SoC mainboard, however I do have a Intel i5-2500k on a ASRock H61M-ITX sitting around doing nothing so will probably go that way.



      My system config is as follows;

      OMV 3.0.99
      1 x 32GB SSD boot device
      2 x 512GB SSHD in SW RAID 1 (for Virtual Machines)
      8 x 4TB HDD using snapraid and unionfs (using cross flashed 9240)

      Given the dissimilar hardware are there any particular steps I need to follow to swap out the mainboard and have OMV recognize all the existing file systems?

      Just boot as normal with no other drives connected you'll also need a screen and keyboard and run the following on the machine not via ssh omv-firstaid select option 1 Configure Network Interface, this may error when finished, ignore it I did, then do shutdown -r now once back up make sure you can get to the gui, shutdown from the gui, connect all your drives and restart.
      Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?
