I noticed when creating a new pool that not all of my drives were available to select. After looking closer I realized that only 15 drives that are visible on the 1st page of “disks”, and only these 15 drives are available to be added to a pool. The remaining 4 drives that are on page 2 of the “disks” page do not show up in the list of drives to choose when creating a new pool. They also do not show up in the list of drives to choose when modifying a pool (add or remove disks).
I was able to create a pool with a subset of the desired drives in the gui, and then use btrfs device add in the command line to finish out the pool.
19 drives! nice! I envy your storage box. I do have this Storinator Q30 that 45 Drives sent us which takes upto 30 drives. Planning to test with all 30 drives soon. I digress…
I’ve been aware of this problem and it’s a simple fix to the ui code. Just managed to get it into this pull request. you(and anyone up to 100 drives) should be all set after the next release(in a week or so), but sorry I don’t have a workaround in the meantime.
