Im looking for an OS, to install on a server, which has 4x 1Tb disks. Id like to couple those disks as an RAID-5 array, and share it over iSCSI to VMWare ESXi 5. Im not sure if this exists...
I have tried/looked into:
- Freenas, older version dont work with ESXi, newer versions dont run RAID-5 without ZFS.
- Openfiler, some kernel-issues with my NICs, I think
- NexentaSTOR, again RAID-Z instead of RAID-5
- DSS V6 Lite, Seems good, but lite has a 2Tb limitation
Any suggestions? Or should I make one myself (eg. Centos + mdadm + iSCSI)?
EDIT: So I might use the RAID-Z after all... (thanks to 3dinfluence)
