Hi, Thanks for the help I’ve received here so far, I’m now pretty confident I can set up nethserver as I need but need a bit of hand-holding with this bit please.
I have Nethserver 6.7 up and running as a firewall/gateway & email server on a single 80Gb hard drive. I’ve added and set up a single shared folder just to get file sharing up and running. Now I want to add a couple of 320Gb drives, set them up as a software RAID, create half a dozen folders on the RAID drive and link the folders into half a dozen shared folders in Nethserver. The idea is that I can see the half a dozen shared folders on my network and mount them on power up in my desktops, running Linux Mint, by adding them to /etc/fstab. This is what my existing system is set up to do with my old Turnkey file server. The intention is the nethserver system resides on the 80Gb drive while my data lives on the RAID array, not mixed up with the nethserver system.
Without the two additional drives, nethserver dashboard showed ‘No software RAID’. Now I’ve added the two additional drives it shows :
Software RAID status
Devices 2/2 (sdc2,sdb2)
I’m not sure if this is because nethserver has seen the new drives and auto magically set up a RAID array, or because the drives were previously used in this way in a D-Link DNS-323 NAS device. Whatever, I’d like to format and set up a new RAID array if this is not what nethserver has already done ?
I’m familiar with Debian/Ubuntu, but not CentOS, so the command line is a little challenging at present
