This weekend, I found out that my raidz was created with 3 drives on Freenas and when I tried to add a new drive, found out the only way is to backup, destroy raid, build a new one and copy back.So, being tired with Freenas, I decided to try out OpenMediaVault ( It peaked my interest because of not only good reviews, but it is based on Debian as well. My Debian knowledge is so much better than FreeBSD, so I said why not.Once the dust was settled, I needed to find out how to install the Plex Media Server, which I love and use almost every day. Thanks to Christian Svedin, this task was easy. Just connect via SSH and run:

sudo apt-get install curl
echo "deb squeeze main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list
curl | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install plexmediaserver

The instructions above also work for Debian Wheezy, just change squeeze to wheezy in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list.

Now time to play more with OMV
