FlexRAID: Adding HDD to storage pool to existing RAID?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am using the Cruise control function in FlexRAID and I want to add more HDD's to the storage pool. I have added new HDD's to the storage pool in the below screen (This is the screen shot of the tutorial here)



So once you have added all the HDD's to the pool how do you get FlexRAID to register the new drives in the pool? They register in the storage manager, but when looking at C: drive they have not been added. Do you need to click "Initialize RAID" again?

Your c drive is not the pool, FR by default creates the v drive for the pool but this is changeable.

My bad, I meant to say My computer screen. I added the DRU's like you do when you first setup cruise control. The DRU drives show up in the config screen, but not in the my computer screen.

BUT, I initialized the RAID again, rebooted and all the drives were added to V: drive.

Hey Mfusick, yes I am all setup and good to go. I just have to setup the snap raid to automatically run on a set time.

I have brought another 20TB to be added since then. biggrin.gif

I have yet to get my HTPC bit streaming yet however. I keep getting static coming through the speakers when ever I set XBMC to DTS-HD/DolbyHD capable receiver. The receiver can certainly decode the codecs, but on any streaming software, when set to bit streaming I get static. I am at a lose.
