Okay, so I thought I'd do a test of the RAID system. I have 6 varying size drives set up for a RAID 6. Fresh OMV install. Operational, everything working as expected.
RAID 6, supposedly 2 failed drives and it will still work....UNTIL
I disconnect ONE of the drives from the array. The ARRAY disappears from OMV and is no longer accessible and does not appear under the RAID Management window anymore.
THIS IS NOT COOL. Unless I am totally misunderstanding what is supposed to happen here.
This indicates to me that even a single drive failing will bring the array down. So what is the point of having a RAID 6, or 5 for that matter, if this happens?
