How does unRAID recognize its array disks? Windows VMware scenario

Recommended Posts

How does unRAID recognize it's array disks? I want to switch back and forth seamlessly between running unRAID bare metal and virtualizing it under windows with vmware. The quandary is that the disks have a different id when passed though this they are not recognized as part of the array.


I figured out that for the cache disks unRAID just looks for a link in /dev/ disks/ by-id  that matches the id in disk.cfg That’s easy for me to script.


But doing the same with array disks with the ids in super.dat does not work. What is it looking for?
