I am a noob to OMV so please excuse my ignorance. First thing I have to say is I am really enjoying playing around with OMV4.
I created a RAID5 with 3 HD (4th HD is for the OS). Since I will be putting all my valuable family digital photos on this device I wanted to ensure I could do some simulated RAID5 failure/recovery before I transfer my TB of photos. Here was my test:
I disconnected the SATA cable to #3 HD while it was still running and as expected I saw clean, degraded under the RAID5 I setup.
I was still able to access a couple of files I put on the storage, good.
I reconnected the SATA cable and OMV4 recognized #3 HD with same name, but the RAID5 was still clean, degraded
I tried to do "Recovery" on the RAID5 but no HD showed up in the selection box.
I rebooted and repeated the same process with no success.
I was able to recover the RAID5 by going to the "Disks" selecting #3 HD and doing a "Wipe"
Then I went to the "RAID Management" and selected the RAID5 to do the "Recovery" which then the #3 HD showed up...all good back to normal, it rebuilt the RAID5.
QUESTION: Is there an easier way to re-initiate #3 HD in the RAID5?
It seems unnecessary to have to rebuild the RAID5.
