Snapshot RAID / Recommended Encryption for Storage Pool?
« on: February 10, 2018, 06:37:39 pm »
I am looking to increase my security on my ubuntu system. How can I set up drive/pool encryption for my system? Will this work nicely with a NAS setup and Plex media server?

I have heard of Truecrypt and I am not sure if this is my best option.

Snapshot RAID / Meta Data Size for snapshot RAID
« on: January 26, 2018, 07:01:23 am »
I had a snapshot raid configuration set up for a while and I had about 3.6TB used. I had to delete that configuration and start a new configuration to make drive swapping easier. I removed 2 drives from the array but both were small (80gb and 160gb) and empty. My new configuration is showing 2.7TB used. I can't seem to see any missing data yet. Is that extra space because I am in a fresh configuration and haven't built up the meta data related to the configuration?

Thank you. I emailed them. Do you know about how long they will take to respond? Have you done this before?

RAID-F on Linux / OS Reinstall/Re-activation
« on: December 23, 2017, 03:34:49 pm »
Hello everyone,

I had to reinstall Ubuntu on my server. I have also reinstalled FlexRAID but I need to reactivate it. I can't seem to find my activation key. Is there another way I can prove my purchase and activate it?

Thank you for the help.

Snapshot RAID / Second Array Different Than First??
« on: September 16, 2017, 05:15:24 pm »

I am trying to create my second array on my ubuntu server. My first one is a cruise control snapshot raid and it initialized (showed up as a single folder in file explorer) and is running without issues. I am trying to create a second array in the same way, but the UI forces me to use expert mode and snapshot again. I am trying to use TRAID infinity with 2 DRU and 1 PPU (all external HDDs) to achieve the same result as the first (see image "original_array" attached) , but the array configuration window is entirely different and there is no button the start the array (see image "new_array" attached). Any help on setting up the second array as the first would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

RAID-F on Linux / Incorrect Storage Pool size Ubuntu
« on: July 27, 2017, 07:57:28 pm »

I have RAID-F setup in Ubuntu 14.04 and I have about 10 TB of storage across a few drives. In the web app the correct size is displayed, but in nautilus it only shows the capacity as 3.9 TB. Any ideas on why that is?


Snapshot RAID / RAID-F SSD Cache for overall speedup
« on: July 18, 2017, 09:19:32 am »

I just got started with FlexRAID and I have a RAID-F storage pool set up using various HDDs. I am looking to speed up the storage by putting an SSD cache infront of the pool. Is this possible on RAID-F?

Thank you.
