    Hello .
    On my server I installed Proxmox VE 3.2 (on 1HD 1TB) , and I decided to install it on raid5 (Software) so I have to add 3 more hd , ok done .
    I've read many guides but encountered some problems , I am aware that Proxmox VE does not support Software RAID (mdraid) Wiki
    the guide which I have tried to follow ,This refers to the version 3.1 , some command fails .

    Install mdadm

    apt-get install mdadm

    modprobe raid5

    fdisk -l


    in all the guides I found reference is made to the command sfdisk , but does not handle partitions GPT , so I have to use sgdisk right?
    how can I proceed, I need help
    many Thanks

    Hello guys
    I want to share my experience with owncloud , I dedicated many many hours to run on owncloud on OMV,it works but not very well . there are 20 days that I have installed on my system Proxmox and I virtualized a Virtual appliances of , I downloaded the ISO file ownCloud ,
    and installed it on my server , is a version of debian 7.2 with owncloud,webmin,webshell,mysql, etc etc.. , is very fast, everything works You can also install it on VirtualBox .
    For the moment this is my alternative

    I never installed Proxmox , but now I want to do on my system because I noticed that virtualbox on OMV is slow (correct me if i am wrong) and I want to virtualize OMV and Zentyal Server 3.3 . My plan is to install Proxmox on ssd after creating the raid 5 (Software) is right :?: my idea is right or wrong?
