Longtime user of Synology but new to XPEnology. I currently have DS412+ and has been running without any issues for about 7 years now. Since it is reaching EOL with no updates after DSM 7, I am planning to build out xpenology as a hyperbackup destination until I buy another synology unit.
Am planning to install xpenology on ESXi with RDM to 4 * 8TB WD Red drives. I will be using SHR configuration.
My question is, How easy is it to move the drives from esxi to synology at a later date.
Is it similar to NAS to NAS migration (remove and insert the drives) or should I have to live copy the data?
