    n7700+n5200br-pro+n5200b-pro - How to get one mass share from all 3

    We have the following all loaded with 1.5Tb drives (ST31500341AS):
    N7700
    N5200BR Pro
    N5200B

    I was under the impression from reading about Stacking devices that I would be able to combine the 3 into one massive share. However, my attempts to do so lead me to believe that this is not the case.

    We've created a raid5 on each device and only put 1% to data. Then created an iSCSI target and used all of the unused space from the device. We're using the N7700 as the main(and the pro for switching) for Stacking. However once i have both devices listed i am not seeing away to incorporate them all into one mass share.

    Can anyone shed any light on this?

    TIA!

    I'm trying to do the same thing using 2 N8800's.

    I am not that linux pro. but take a view from this side:
    all the thecus NAS are nothing else than linux servers.
    so they will have all the limitations and options, a "normal" - not that custom build - linux server would have.

    sure you can mount the disks and FS wierd into one computer... but you will have all the NFS limitations.

    one possible way, which you could test is: taken all NAS as iSCSI and mount the 3 iSCSI disks into another NAS as a JBOD /raid0 / whatever joins them - now you are able to use this space as iSCSI mount. this setup will produce higher network and CPU demands... so wire carefully .

    don't think that the GUI of thecus supports this, but it should be do-able in a normal shell.

    Virtual Disk should work, no?

    maybe I don't get it - but the thecus stacking sounds to me more like a "use one ip for your shares and manage most of it within your major NAS", not like a "join them all into one giant volume".
    so this is hardly the solution.
