Installation and Setup for EON System

As of today 1 Feb 2022, I have my EON NAS unit running with Raspberry Pi BullsEye OS, MDADM, and OMV 5.

Below is my documented process of how I got everything up and running. There are no guarantees that this will work 100 percent but I was able to perform this twice to ensure it worked for me. Use as you see fit.

PS. I’m am not developer nor geeky enough to troubleshoot any issue you may come across.

Installing and setting up RAID 1 on Raspberry Pi (Bullseye) and Open Media Vault

Install Raspberry Lite OS version of Bullseye to memory card
- Ensure SSH has been enable during the install to memory card (Use: Ctrl Shift X)

Flash Pi board with new OS

Open PuTTY application

-Find the IP for this NAS Pi board
-Log in when able

Add EON Script to Pi Board

curl | bash

Follow the below command lines to install MDADM software to establish a Raid configuration

sudo -i

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get upgrade -y 
sudo apt-get install mdadm -y


   Note:  Verify the correct harddrive assignment (ie, sda, sdb, sdc, or sdd).  My two harddrives 
   (Seagate 6Tb Wolf) were docked in the two center SATA ports) and were listed as sda and sdb.

sudo mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md/vol1 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda /dev/sdb 

Follow below instructions for installing OMV

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

sudo reboot now

After logging in,


chmod +x install
sudo ./install

sudo reboot now

After reboot, Go to your browser and enter the IP number for the NAS.
Follow instructions from New User Guide — openmediavault 5.x.y documentation
