I'm about to get a NAS for my home, and I'm thinking about FreeNas as opposed to a commercial solution, but I'm open to the most convenient and smooth solution
The single most important thing I want is being able to add the disks in the nas to a storage pool and then have that pool mapped in e.g. Windows, as a single disk, like on Windows Home Server. Is this even possible? If so, how would it be done?
If I were to get a commercial solution, what would you recommend that has this feature? I'm thinking about a Synology ds1511+, would that work? I recall something about a storage pool setup with ISCSI on that NAS, but I have no idea as to how one would go about that.
Any ideas on how to achieve this?
