All i know is this NAS 2041 uses RAID 5 but what other info do I need inorder to mount it? Ext3/4??? Parity rotation? or simply just don't care and plug them in anyways?
Well, to start with, you should plug them in anyway. Then you can search the data partitions using
This shows all (recognized) block devices, disks, partitions, raid arrays, ...
Search for 3 equal sized (size is given in kB) devices sdxn
, where x
is three different characters, and n
is the same number. When you have located them, execute
mdadm --examine /dev/sda3
mdadm --examine /dev/sdb3
mdadm --examine /dev/sdc3
where you exchange the [abc] by your found characters, and 3 by your found number. Post the output. It will tell how the raid array is organized, and which role each disk has.
3.) *same numbers as #2 with more characters goes after it. (2.7TB) <- this has rubbish data......
2.7TB is the total size of the array, I guess? 4 *1TB minus parity?
