Hi all

I recently purchased a DS2419+ that i'm looking to make into a home media server. I have an existing SHR volume on a DS1517+ that I would like to migrate over but am curious about adding in a couple SSD drives in a new storage pool for DSM/ application support.

To clarify, i'm interested in doing the following in said order:
  1. Setup new device, fresh
  2. Install SSDs as new storage pool for DSM/ Applications - Can DSM be housed under one volume?
  3. Migrate SHR volume, HDD data only - Can this be done after volume1 on new device has been created?
Any help is appreciated
 
1st off welcome to the forum!

My suggestion would be to migrate 1st and then add new drives and set them up as a new volume. After that, you can migrate any app/data you want to that faster storage. Setting up a new volume 1st in your new NAS will require that you install fresh DSM 1st. If you then move your existing setup you might have a bit of a clash with multiple DSM detected.

Good to hear. You could also clone the drive and expand the data partition using Clonezilla/gParted.
