I am new to OMV, and Linux.
I had an OMV install on an old Dell XPS 610 that I had. The Motherboard in that box is failing forcing me to migrate the hardware to a Dell Dimension E520 today. I moved my boot drive as well as the 2-500gb drives of my RAID0. I booted the new box and to my surprise it booted, the only change I had to make was to use omv-firstaid to reset my network information to my static IP address.
When I load the Web GUI, all of my previous shares, etc are there. The only problem that I have is that OMV is not seeing the RAID0 that I have setup. The 2 drives are shown as separate drives in the disks section of the GUI, and there is nothing listed under the RAID Management section. I am pretty sure when I installed OMV, I did not have to build the RAID, and I am afraid if I try to build it now it will require me to wipe the disks, or worse wipe them without telling me, I migrated this Raid from WIN7 to OMV about a month ago in the Dell XPS.
I am running a Dell Dimemsion E520 Pentium D at 3ghz. AHCI Raid Bios installed and updated to the newest version. 8GB Ram, 2 WD 500GB drives in RAID0, and a Seagate Barracuda 320G drive as my boot drive.
When I check the BIOS settings, I have Raid turned on in the BIOS, all of the drives are listed and on the correct SATA Ports, and in the Boot options menu my boot drive and the RAID are listed as boot options. That means the hardware is seeing the correct configuration, and this is a software problem correct?
I have 2 Questions:
1) will building the Raid in OMV erase the data?
2) is there a way to reinstall the Debian OS to pick up the changes in the new box so the Raid will be detected by OMV?
Thanks in advance for your help.
