Option 3: napp-it barebone setup


Install your OS and napp-it manually

read www.napp-it.org/doc/downloads/napp-it.pdf


Use this method if you like your own setup, if you only need simple NAS/SAN config without advanced support for other operating systems or  if you need a dedicated highspeed NAS or SAN.

Download a bootup ISO of newest OmniOS, OpenIndiana or Solaris 11, burn it and install to a local Sata disk or fast USB stick (min  30 GB, best are SSDs).  You can also use one or two Sata DOMs for a boot mirror, see http://www.supermicro.com/products/nfo/SATADOM.cfm

A
fter setup I suggest to clone the bootdisk to an external disk or an SMB/NFS share (can be your desktop) with clonezilla (from USB stick) or with the help of an 3,5" hardware Sata raid 1 enclosure.  If you care about uptime, do a ZFS boot mirror on two disks.  If you use a hardware raid-1 enclosure, I would use it with its hotplug capability to clone the bootdisk - not for regular raid-use as they are not as good as ZFS mirrors.


Recovery:
In case of problems, try a former BE, use the bootable backup disk or restore from image with clonezilla.
