I have played around with omv5 on a dev machine and now want to reinstall my production machine (home media sever) with OMV5. It is currently running an up to date omv4 install.
I know my config is over kill, but isn't that what we do?
I have a 24 drive slot server. I am in the midst of updating my snapraid config from 3 parity to 4 parity drives as I have them lying around.
Will snapraid recognize the data drives and parity drives as a snapriad setup after I reinsert them after the new install. I under stand I will have to install the appropriate plugins, snapraid and unionfs but want to know if there are any pitfalls.
My drive set up:
3 x hgst 3TB parity drives. Currently adding parity drive 4
8 x hgst 2TB data drives. Don't like high density disks due to higher failure rates, and my chassis has the space and 12 more open slots for expansion.
Any advise is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
