SG-2440 - mSATA Secondary Drive



  • Hi all,

    I've installed an msata drive for squid/suricata.  The drive is recognized, but i'm getting the error (msg) below:

    ******* Working on device /dev/ada0 *******
    parameters extracted from in-core disklabel are:

    Anything you do to add the mSATA as a second drive will be outside what is designed to be done in the webGUI.

    I would back up the config, reinstall to the mSATA, restore the config, and forget the on-board eMMC exists.

    The factory installer should install to and boot from the mSATA automatically.

    Then you will have a standard configuration and not a special case.



  • That makes the most sense so will give it a shot.  Thanks!
