Hi, I’m making progress with setting up Nethserver from scratch to replace an old(ish) ‘hand crafted’ server system.
My hardware is an HP microserver with (at present) a single drive containing the Nethserver install to date. The plan is (was) to install up to four data drives in a RAID array and import my existing data. My system is all Liniux, I don’t run any Windoze machines.
I have the firewall/gateway and email sorted, now I’ve moved on to setting up the file server. I have ~2Tb of existing files and folders I need to import and share, everything from personal data to music and films. At present I have a pair of BTRFS formatted 2Tb drives containing this data, shared using the Turnkey file server in a virtualbox VM.
My assumption was I would be able to install these drives into Nethserver, re-format them as a software RAID, then restore the data from offline backup and configure nethserver for file sharing. I seem to either be wrong or very confused
As far as I can see at present I can only define new folders, and only with lower case names. I cannot import existing folders for sharing, or worse still, have anything other than lower case names for everything. From various comments and discussions on the forums the shared folders are placed in /var/… so they’re included in the backups etc…
Am I completely confused or is what I’m hoping to do actually possible with Nethserver ??
