Does N2 support this SSD-RAID housing

Post by o_lampe »

I ordered a N2 from Pollin.de, also two SSD drives and a dual SATA housing with uasp RAID functionality:
https://www.pollin.de/p/usb-3-0-festpla ... aid-703452
It supports RAID 0/1, JBOD/PM Modus
Can anyone confirm if N2 is able to use the RAID function or is JBOD better? ( never heard of JBOD before )

Thx
Olaf

It should work. Make sure to update the OS on the N2.
JBOD is Just a Bunch of Disks - so, you'll see 2 disks, no raid.
You should select what you need and then format/transfer data over. Avoid playing with the jumpers after.
RAID should be hardware, so the N2 would see just one disk with a varying capacity, depending on raid type.

I've seen in gparted, that there is a option/flag called RAID, will I need this or ext4 volumes?

No, I think that it's set for software RAID (dmraid).
