Description

When you use all connected harddisks as iSCSI extents there is no volume to use for the file upload which is needed for an upgrade.

It would be good if a second partition on the boot drive could be used for this.

History

#1 Updated by William Grzybowski almost 8 years ago

What about using mdconfig using memory backed up device to upload it?

#2 Updated by Anonymous over 7 years ago

His request seems logical and will only get worse with plugins, but it seems like something that should be documented TBH...

#3 Updated by William Grzybowski almost 7 years ago

Should be fixed in r12150
