Help Explaning Expansion of TS-464

Post by CovertRain »

Hi can someone help me understand. So, it appears the TS-464 can be expanded using for example the TR-004. However, what concerns me is that it says you cannot use it to expand the storage Pool or volume (using Raid 5) and that it must be setup with it's own. How will that work if you are using it as a Plex server? Will I have to have separate libraries in Plex?!?! Is there anyway to configure this so Plex sees everything on the TS-464 and TR-004 as one library? Did I screw myself buying a TS-464?

Still in learning mode with all of this.

A Plex library can have multiple data source locations

Just add the TR/share/folder as location and all files will be indexed into it

Appreciate it. Question, is there any thing I should consider with the expansion? Now that I know Plex can handle multiple libraries it sounds like I am good to go.

Setup up the TR as another pool>volume>share(s) and it should show up alongside all other shares in your system

Depending on how important the files are, do not forget the backups

Both will be used to store Plex media. Still working on a backup plan. Not sure what to do just yet.
