Identify drives via serial number


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this got added since I last did a swap.  If so, please disregard.


I have my drives in external USB docks.  I used to have them all in stacked dock (with all four) but then I had to spin up the whole thing just to access one.  When I moved them I had to do it one at a time because Unraid saw them as new drives (with the different controllers) despite the fact it could easily see the serial number under drive info.  Can we have unraid suggest drives that it's seen in the array in the correct positions via serial numbers?  I'm intending to move them all into the case, but if this hasn't changed I'll need to do it piecemeal again.
