Hi all,

Just got a new dedi with 2x NVME drives. Wanting to mount the 2nd drive to use a processing disk, however I can't seem to find it below:

Code:
#df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev             32G     0   32G   0% /dev
tmpfs           6.3G  1.3M  6.3G   1% /run
/dev/md2        437G  4.9G  410G   2% /
tmpfs            32G     0   32G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
tmpfs            32G     0   32G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/md1        487M  142M  321M  31% /boot
tmpfs           6.3G     0  6.3G   0% /run/user/0
tmpfs           6.3G     0  6.3G   0% /run/user/1000
tmpfs           6.3G     0  6.3G   0% /run/user/1001
It definitely exists:

Do I fdisk /dev/md2? and create a new partition? Or am I on the wrong drive?
Post automatically merged:

If I create a new particition on /dev/md2 and then run sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/md2 it tells me: /dev/md2 is already mounted; will not make a filesystem here!' So I'm assuming that md2 isn't the correct disk - but there isn't another option...

I cannot create a primary partition on /dev/nvme1n1 as fdisk prompts me to delete one of 3 partitions before I can setup a new one

Md2 is in raid1
Nvme1 and nvme2 are /dev/md2 raid1

Sorry to come back to this. I set my drives up and the second HD is mounted at /mnt now.
Oddly enough, my downloads aren't being passed on to GDrive. I've looked through some of the rclone settings and found that there's a 2nd HDD option. Do I need to enable this? I would have thought that mounting it at /mnt would have been enough to just send the downloaded to that drive/directory?

I'm also getting a ReadTimeout issue (https://github.com/adamgot/python-plexlibrary/issues/55) when running python-plexlibrary which appears to be linked to the RClone issue.

I really hope I haven't done something majorly wrong when making the partitions at the beginning and will need to start over šŸ˜‚

Adding /mnt to the mount list in rclone just makes it hang when Conducting RClone Mount Checks
