Total Noob to OMV 've never learn linuxand Linux here so please forgive all my stupid questions.
I have a HP DL380P gen 8 to replace my ancient Thecus for a number of reasons.
After a bit of digging I opted for OMV as it got good write ups and is based on full Linux (I've had trouble with FreeBSD based stuff in the past)
The good news:
-Ive installed OMV onto my server
-I've been able to access the control panel through a web browser
-I can remote in through Putty and SSH
-The server has a built in hardware RAID Card a P420i
-I want to be able to turn off the RAID card and use it as a disc controller (HBA) - this can be done. That way I can use the software RAID of OMV.
-I have found out how to do it on a unRAID forum (but its basic linux as far as I can tell) [SOLVED] unRAID with HP p420i RAID card in HP ProLiant DL380p G8... - Storage Devices and Controllers - Unraid
-I have the HP debian file I need to install to change the RAID card to HBA mode
What I don't know is linux (at all). I'm old enough that I used MS-DOS before windows so command line itself isnt scary but I've never learnt Linux.
Please can someone give me total Noddy steps (what to type etc) to enable me to go into the background debian and update the file as per the link above. (Yeah I know - I'm hoping someone will take pity on me.)
Alternatively I'm open to you all telling me what a huge moron I am and why so I can learn for future.
HUGE Thank you in advance.
