P222 migration


Recommended Posts

I love my Gen8, as does everyone else in the household love everything it does for them and I need more space on it so I've picked up a P222 with the aim of adding 4x4tb drives in raid 5. Data moving has proved to be a bit difficult though

Gen8 J06 - 04/04/2019

B120i (v3.54.0) with 4x RAID 0 drives of varying sizes. I'm trying to fix this. There will be some juggling of data & disks before I'm ready to replace them full


I switch the cable to the P222 (v8.32) and it detects 4 logical drives which is what I expect but when it boots into vmware it doesn't detect the partitions. All the logical sizing is correct though. Partitions are labelled unknown and if I try to edit them I just get the loading screen, nothing happens


Am I expecting too much or doing something wrong?

if anyone is interested


since I was using raid 0 on the B120i I was able to simply move each of the drives to the optical port and mount them within esxi - well it did the mounting for me - then move the data around as I saw fit onto the P222
