And another tidbit learned!
No worries, everything is in test mode more or less with separate backups for now.
I am about 3 parts and a couple days away from finalizing the hardware setup and buttoning everything up.
My new WS setup will be next, all water cooled, 5950X thing that will be able to run a ton of Folding@Home and BOINC tasks.
The only observation I will point out is that doing the zypper update, the base openSUSE revision bumps from 59.37 to 59.43. I don’t know if that is due to a kernal update or just the other files being added. In any case, I see no harm as of yet and I’m still only using 2.5 to 3.5 G of space on 240G SSDs.
And, besides, it seemed to me the setup process more or less told me to update everything! LOL!
But, I hear ya, and I can tell you it’s ZERO problem for me to re-install Rockstor WITHOUT detaching anything! I’m so sold on Rockstor.
With the latest 4.x update, all my problems went away. I will re-install yet again on both systems to stay in sync with your releases to avoid “other” problems in the final operational setups, so no worries!
I have the main and backup setups operating 100% and they have both survived at least a dozen each power shutdowns while busy writing without any problems whatsoever! Try that with ZFS!!! ( I did and it failed every time!)
