Weird: disks correctly listed but some of them are unavailable under file systems!

  • Hi friends! :)

    I'm using OMV since a long time but I've created a new OMV server in order to use URBACKUP plugin. My goal is to have near 20To of backup storage with multiple disks. One storage location through UNION FILESYSTEM (easier than LVM to manage :)

    So I created a UNION FILESYSTEM with 3 HDD 2.0To in order to start, everything is working fine.

    Then I added 5 new HDD after creating the UNIONFILESYSTEM.... and problem appears: I'm not able to use new disks now!!

    I added 5 new disks: they're correctly listed under OMV:
    -->I was then able to delete disks through DISK / ERASE under OMV
    on STORAGE / DISKS I see the correct information:
    /dev/sda ST2000... 1.8To (UNION FILESYSTEM)
    /dev/sdb ST2000... 1.8To (UNION FILESYSTEM)
    /dev/sdc WDC20EZ.... 1.8To (UNION FILESYSTEM)
    /dev/sdd OCZ VECTOR ... 120GB
    /dev/sde WDC WD15EADS 1.5To (new disk)
    /dev/sdf WDC WD15EADS 1.5To (new disk)
    /dev/sdg WDC WD15EADS 1.5To (new disk)
    /dev/sdh WDC WD15EADS 1.5To (new disk)
    /dev/sdi WDC WD15EADS 1.5To (new disk)

    Then I went under STORAGE/ FILESYSTEM tab in order to create partition and mount disks.
    Here I found only ONE new disk that I was able to mount.... only one on 5 disks!!!
    /dev/sda1 ext4 1.8To ... mount ... online
    /dev/sdb1 ext4 1.8To ... mount ... online
    /dev/sdc1 ext4 1.8To ... mount ... online
    /dev/sdd1 ext4 106Gb ... mount ... online
    /dev/sdf1 ext4 1.8To ... mount ... online
    /srv/9b41160e-Oc5d-4d..... fuse.mergerfs ... mount ... online -->> the UNION FILESYSTEM disk

    Why I only see 1 new disk on this tab and not the others??? 4 HDD are missing !!!

    I then tested with some command on the console:

    /etc/fstab is giving:

    --->>> WEIRD!!! SDE SDG SDG and SDI are the disks I want to use!!! but I don't know how to do this!!

    Those disks are using a SATA 6G PCI card on my server with Marvel 9215 with 4 SATA PORTS. They're detected by the system. But is the problem is coming from this side???
    It's weird because this card (IOCREST) is normally compatible with LINUX.
