  1. True, I thought it would show raid5 for the system (I set mconvert to raid1, so I was expecting that to show raid1). Thank you! Is there a calculation for that? I was expecting it to be "Free space, minus 1TB"
  2. I was actually just editing the quoted post, sorry about that. I think I got it! Thank you!! Now my next and hopefully final question.. Shouldn't System and Metadata say RAID5? The UI shows the sdg as having 3TB free, when it should have only 2. Here's what I ran, and the results of btrfs filesystemdf: root@NAS:~# btrfs balance start -dconvert=raid5 -mconvert=raid1 /mnt/disks/nas-ssd-pool/ Done, had to relocate 4 out of 4 chunks root@NAS:~# btrfs filesystem df /mnt/disks/nas-ssd-pool/ Data, RAID5: total=2.00GiB, used=1.00MiB System, RAID1: total=32.00MiB, used=16.00KiB Metadata, RAID1: total=1.00GiB, used=112.00KiB GlobalReserve, single: total=16.00MiB, used=0.00B
  3. Right, I mounted only the first device with "nas-ssd-pool" as the mount name. When I mount it via UD's UI, /mnt/disks/nas-ssd-pool is there, but when it's unmounted, it vanished (which is what I'd expect). I don't try to mount the other devices.
  4. Thank you! It seem easy enough, however when I'm trying to do this, the btrfs dev add -f /dev/sdg1 /mnt/disks/nas-ssd-pool fails with: "ERROR: /dev/sdg1 is mounted" which makes sense, because the directions said to mount it, but it also makes sense that the command cannot change the config of a file system while it's mounted. Any idea on this one?
  5. Thank you! That seems easy enough. I was hoping for a GUI way (feels less hacky that way lol), but I'm not afraid on a Linux command line. Now to figure out how to power the additional drives.. I'm using the SuperMicro 12 drive chassis with my 2 drive cache pool using command strip velcro to the side of the case powered off one molex to 2 sata adapter. Not sure if it's safe to run 5 SSDs off a single molex plug lol..
  6. I'm running unRAID 6.7.2 pro version with a 10TB Parity, with 2x10TB, 1x2TB, soon to add 2x2TB, 1x3TB, and 1x4TB as data drives. These are all spinning disks. I'd like to however also add an array for 1TB SSDs to house VMs for a Proxmox cluster. I can't add these to the normal pool because the parity drive would slow everything down. I'm tossing the idea of having a hardware RAID 5 and present that to unRAID's Unassigned Devices as a single virtual drive, but then I can't see if there's a failure (these would be internal drives). Is there a way to make this a software controlled RAID 5 so unRAID can alert me of any failures, but keep these drives separate from the spinning disks?
  7. How do you do this (manage it using the UA Devices Plugin)? I have it installed but it looks like I can only connect NFS/SMB or ISO file share, rather than an internal virtual disk. I need to add a pair of 1TB SSDs in a RAID0 that I don't want to be part of the normal array, but I need to be able to share it out.
