  • Upgrade from v2.3

    Hello,

    I have been using v2.3 very happily for a long time but was planning to upgrade to v2.4 to use Roon Server. I have the OS installed on an SSD and the music files on 2 HDDs and installing the new OS is, by itself, not a problem.

    My question is -
    - do I need to re-make the 2 HDDs from scratch and re-install the music & videos from backup
    or
    - can I leave the 2 HDDs alone, install the new v2.4 OS on the SSD and mount the 2 HDDs back to the SSD as the 'storage' folder?

    Grateful for any advice. I was looking for the old wiki & forum to remind myself how I configured the SSD & 2 HDDs in the first place, but I can't locate it. Is it still available for reference purposes?

    many thanks
    George

    Here's an archive of the old wiki. Not sure if everthing is still there.

      Yes. It's alright to "leave the 2 HDDs alone, install the new v2.4 OS on the SSD and mount the 2 HDDs back to the SSD as the 'storage' folder".

        Can you advise how to mount the two [VB 2.3] storage HDDs to a new VB 2.4 install?

        The two storage disks (/dev/sda and /dev/sdc) are set up as follows and the VB OS is installed on /dev/sdb

        [[email protected] ~]# lsblk /dev/sda
        NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
        sda 8:0 0 1.8T 0 disk
        └─sda1 8:1 0 1.8T 0 part
        └─StorageVM-lv_storage 253:0 0 4.6T 0 lvm /storage

        [[email protected] ~]# lsblk /dev/sdc
        NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
        sdc 8:32 0 2.7T 0 disk
        └─sdc1 8:33 0 2.7T 0 part
        └─StorageVM-lv_storage 253:0 0 4.6T 0 lvm /storage

        [[email protected] ~]# lsblk /dev/sdb
        NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
        sdb 8:16 0 111.8G 0 disk
        ├─sdb1 8:17 0 1M 0 part
        ├─sdb2 8:18 0 500M 0 part /boot
        ├─sdb3 8:19 0 256M 0 part [SWAP]
        ├─sdb4 8:20 0 1K 0 part
        └─sdb5 8:21 0 29.3G 0 part /

        I will presumably need to adjust the /etc/fstab file of the v2.4 VB installation also to reflect the UUID of the disc to be mounted at /storage. Would it be the same UUID as now?

        I'm sorry but I cannot access the link to the old wiki from any of my browsers from any location. I'll raise another post to avoid confusion.

          fstab can cause problems. Just use the mount command.

            I'm sorry, I don't understand how that will help as it will not be permanent will it? I would have expected to go through the procedure in the new wiki under the heading
            http://wiki.vortexbox.org/how_to_use...ve_for_storage

            2nd potential problem is that the LVM partition spans the two disks sda and sdc and the pair have their own ssid. Will that endure if I transplant the 2 disks to a new VB install? If it does then I can treat the pair as one disk and mount it at /storage.
