Usb3 to sata and USB C to sata / openmedia
#1
If I connect sata 2.5" SSD 500gb to USB3 port
And
I connect USB C to sata 2.5 SSD 500gb
Running openmediavault.
 Can I set up the 1TB storage (2 x 500GB SSDs) as NAS?  If so can I set up raid copy to 2nd drive?

I've seen ROCKPORT 64 setup with 1 drive with Openmediavault as a successful NAS.

Thank you in advance!

This is a good question. I trying almost the same with two of JMicron JMS551 SATA3 dual port docking station with four SATA HDD. Two HDD on both USB3-A and USB3-C ports. I use Arch linux with Mainline kernel (4.20.3-1-ARCH) and a little trick was needed to get USB-C to work as it is in OTG mode by default and needed to change to host mode:

"fdtput -t s /boot/dtbs/rockchip/rk3399-rockpro64.dtb /[email protected]/dwc3 dr_mode host"

After reboot the second docking station is working but it is not USB3 but USB2 (Bus #5):

I use this cable between RockPro64 USB-C port and docking station USB3-B port: https://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/142...connectors

Any idea how to make it work in USB3 mode?
Thanks!
