Disk not available

  • I have just setup my first OMV server, after a brief problem with the network setup all that is done now, so onwards!
    Oh yes the storage... disks I see the 7 disks that I wanna use, under SMART I see them aswell.
    But when I try to create an array I only the the new one I put into today, an replacement for a broken disk, no other disk, all is low lvl formatted.
    I tried to fdisk them and remove the only partition on them didn't help.


    How do I get the disks to appear in RAID

  • Probably means there is a residual signature on them to find out run wipefs -n /dev/sd[?] replace the ? with a drive letter.

    Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

  • Thanks that was it, I managed to wipe 3 disks before I discovered that a quick wipe was enough.... oh well learn the hard way is the best.
