    • RAID 1 Build

      Hello guys,

      yesterday i created my first NAS with OMV :D
      I started the "RAID Creation" over night.
      I have 2x 4TB WD HDDs in mirror raid 1 build now.
      But in "RAID Administration" i have 4x rows to this raid 1 build. ?(

      Which row is the right and which one i should use for bind in and what does it mean with the 4 rows.

      I put the screenshots to the attachements.

      Thanks :)

    • This is weird, from pictures i visualize:

      sda st2000lm 2TB not mounted so far.
      sdb Your booting device with 108 GiB in sdb1. It is not shown in HDD list, why ?
      sdc wd 4TB unit 1 for your mirror.
      sdd wd 4TB unit 2 for your mirror.

      Filesystems:
      /dev/md0p2 ext4, it seems your mirror, but without size information !!
      /dev/sdb1 ext4, Your booting device.

      RAID:
      This is really extrange. I assume your want a RAID (mirror) of the full disk, so you don't need to partition it before. I think here there should be only the entry md0.

      I would wait for others opinion, I'm new with OMV, but it seem like there were some errors and it is misconfigured.
      I would delete RAID entries and recreate the mirror from scratch. :)
    • Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your answer. ^^

      Yes forget the first Screenshot. I forgot to screenshot the boot device a 128GB SSD, too.

      I have mounted the 2TB device now.
      The boot device is mounted too, ofc.
      All fine.

      My problem now are the 2x 4 TB devices.
      I created over night the mirror raid but now i have 4 partition of the raid (screenshot 3).
      Now i wanna mount this raid to my omv but i dont know which partition i should take.
      Partition 1 with 3.64TB oder partition 3 with 3.63TB?
      In Filesystem list OMV suggest me the md0p2 with 3.63TB but i am not sure if this is right.
      I can go over create button and chose the 3.64TB too.
      Are there errors or is this right and what should i choose?

      My other question is md0p3. Its 7.66GB big. What does it means?
      And what does the 977 Kib Partition means?
