Doesnt matter , but untill you add new device you are running unprotected. There is no mirror.
Also detach is ok but again it adds time as it has to redo the meta data and such to dissolve the mirror and later it has to recreate the mirror , where actuall replace just updates the meta data to...
First things first.
Before you start replacing the drives , turn the zfs auto expand ON on the pool.
This way once you replace all the disk the pool will expand to fill the whole new space.
Second if you have the ports and space mount the new disks in the box. Get the disks uuid and run zfs...
I figure I add my 2 cents as well.
Everything is truly up to you but here are some thoughts.
Do you plan on expanding in the future?
Is reliability and data safety important to you?
Ease of expansion important to you?
If all or any of this is yes zfs is a good way to go. Not an only way by all...
You can not do both.
If on install you still see 2 separate disks than your hardwere raid is not working or not configured correctly.
If you see 2 disks and can use it in zfs raid than incorrect hardware configuration will be destroyed.
There is no good reason to use both. Infact a hardware...
Yes it works. I am running pfsence vm on Lenovo p58 machine right now.
Idea was to be able to try out several firewalls for easy switching but pfsence was the simplest to setup and run for my needs. It is a simple home router replacement.
Machine has 3 nics.
One for Proxmox management
Can't you bind mount the local pool into vm?
I know I do it for my lxc containers.
I have all my data pools on host.
Proxmox does not manage them. And I just bind mount the pool to my lxc.
I run emby and jdownloader like that.
This is a normal way. Infact it is the preferred way for zfs.
"Normal" .sdX. Style names can change between reboots. The uui names stay the same regardless.
Use. ls -l /dev/disk/by-id
To get the uui name and normal name of the disk.
Use it in zpool replace old disk new disk. Command
I folowed the steps in wiki exactly.
I know just enought to be dangerous
But not enought to be creative.
I had a functioning server at the end, but all my lxc configs were gone. And new setup didn't want to recognize the vm disks at all. They would attach but not boot.
I am ,in fact, zfs based.
Just not sure how to do it safely.
Last update I tried, from 5.1 to 5.3 just hosed the system and I had to re do everything from scratch. At this moment I have only 3 VMs containers but doing the config again bites.
This sucks. I was kind of hoping you find a solution other than full reinstall.
I have a home server running 5.3
Would love to upgrade to 6. But it's the only machine I have. And I am still not sure how to system backup properly.
