is it possible to change SATA Ports

  • I want to connect my system hard disk from a PCI-SATA Carte to a SATA port on the motherboard for boot reasons.

    I have a Raid 0 with two hard disks, which I want to connect to the PCI-SATA Cate. Is this possible without major problems?

    Yep. Linux should not care which port they are plugged into. mdadm looks for the raid signature on the drives to assemble the correct drives.

    you will need to edit the mntent section in the database for uuid 79684322-3eac-11ea-a974-63a080abab18

    What is wrong? The uuid or the fsname?

    I am a little confused.

    my fstab looks like:

    Code
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    # / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
    UUID=86ac8430-ca91-402c-98d5-7d34199d7be8 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # /boot/efi was on /dev/sda1 during installation
    UUID=8375-F63F  /boot/efi       vfat    umask=0077      0       1
    # swap was on /dev/sda3 during installation
    UUID=f3d28a53-6546-49a0-bf0d-c4ee8c8f1e90 none            swap    sw              0       0
    # >>> [openmediavault]
    /dev/disk/by-uuid/dd915235-e700-47

    and the mntent section:

    Code
           <uuid>79684322-3eac-11ea-a974-63a080abab18</uuid>
            <fsname>/dev/sdc2</fsname>
            <dir>/</dir>
            <type>ext4</type>
            <opts>errors=remount-ro</opts>
            <freq>0</freq>
            <passno>1</passno>
            <hidden>1</hidden>

    And in the omv gui in the S.M.A.R.T menue the system disk is listing under /dev/sde ?(

    This has nothing to do with your fstab. You need to change the fsname in the mntent that you copied from /dev/sdc2 to /dev/sde2 (if your new location is /dev/sde).
