So I have a bunch of drives in /volume1: 5x3TB 3x6TB (added later) Now I have a bunch more drives that currently in /volume3 (/volume2 was deleted, just 1 SSD for VM storage): 1x3TB 2x10TB and a bunch of unused drives: 3x3TB So I wanted to add all of the drives into one big /volume1. So... 1. I backed up /volume1 using HyperBackup into /volume2. 2. delete/destroy /volume1, 3. add all 3TB drives first (minus the one 3TB drive in /volume2) as well as the 3x6TB drives into the newlybuilt /volume1. All in SHR. 4. restore the HyperBackup from /volume2, destroy /volume2 5. Expand/add the 2x10TB from /volume2 into /volume1. So I'm left with 1x3TB unused. Questions: 1. Will this work? 2. What will happen to my DSM and apps during deletion, creation of SHR, and during restoration from HyperBackup? 3. Will the newly created volume/storage pool be in /volume1 or /volume4 after I removed /volume1? 4. Anything else I need to worry about? Because /volume1 used size is 20TB, and the HyperBackup in /volume2 is 18.4TB in size. Cheers and thanks!
Hi, I have a Gen8 running DSM 6.1.4-51217 Update 5. I have been trying to get Virtual Machine manager up and running. The package installs fine, but when I run it, it only allows me to select Volume 3 as the storage for the VMs. I am using PetaSpace to manage volume 1, which is made up of a combination of drives. Am i unable to use this volume for VMM?
