replaced all drives with larger ones, increase raid size

  • Hi everyone,

    I am using OMV on a HyperV server, i changed from horizontal to vertical position with an caddy. This action cost me all my drives, I replaced them with larger ones, today i replaced the last one. But the raid size is still the same size. Is there a posibility to increase the raid size to match the drive size?

    With regards,


  • Unfortunately my crystal ball is offline and not able to access your system for the relevant information :)

    However, you could ssh into OMV and run mdadm --grow /dev/mdX --size=max where X is the reference of your array

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

  • My guess is that your crystal ball works perfectly! It did the trick! The raid set is increased! A little resync and we are up and running! Thank You very much!:):)
