The plan is good, however I would get 4 new HDDs to avoid mixing old and new HDDs in the same RAID 10 of 4 drives which withstands 2 drives failure.1.Just want to know if the above sounds like a sensible plan or if there are better options?
Please check backup mapping2.I want to know how I can migrate the veeam backups to the new server. If I just use rsync to copy the two veeam folders, reload the server and then copy back the veeam folders like for like, will Veeam B&R see the existing backups and continue to work as expected? Or is there another way to save these backups?
If you mean that your backup repository server (linux) has only 4 bays and you'll basically have to reinstall the whole system then it's absolutely fine. Just place your backups to some temporary place, reconfigure the repository, put the backups back, remap the job and keep going. One may argue that it is possible to convert RAID 1 into RAID 10 without losing data, however I'd rather copy the backups somewhere beforehand - array migration may be very tricky and may result in a data loss.Important thing to note is that the server only has 4 bays so if I use RAID 10 (4 disk minimum) I dont think there is any way for me to implement the new setup without reloading the backup server complete - but correct me if I am wrong.
