Reïnstall - reclaim RAID6 pool

  • I have been forced to reinstall OMV6 due a problem with a configuration file.

    Stupid, stupid the backup has the same issue.

    Afrer reinstalling I am trying to reconfigure the 16 HDD RAID6 pool.

    All disks are visible in Storage | Disks, but 2 disk do not show the correct storage size.

    In SMART settings these two show status unknown?

    When trying to create an new pool only the two (damaged?) disks with incorrect storage capacity can be selected.

    As it appears the pool is still there, but how do I get acces again?

    BTW: I searched on the forum for similar questions but haven't found any

    You don't need to create a new array, if the array does not show in raid management then it's probably inactive

    ssh into omv and post the output of cat /proc/mdstat

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