How to Create NFS Server (RAID 5) in Huawei 2288H V5 with CentOS

On this tutorial, we're gonna create NFS Server in Huawei 2288H V5 (prod. 2020) as an example. You can follow this tutorial to create a NFS Server in hardware that don't have a RAID Controller. 

As you know, RAID level 5 uses striping, which means, the data is spread across number of disks used in the array, and also provides redundancy with the help of distributed parity. RAID 5 is the best cost effective solution for both performance and redundancy. Minimum number of disks required for raid 5 is 3 disk. One important part in RAID5 is that the reading rate is much better than writing. And this is due to the parity overhead. 

So, be aware! in RAID 5 Reading Speed > Writing Speed 

First, you need to install a CentOS 7/8 on your machine. Update to the latest packages available.
Check if your machine is have a RAID 5 or other RAID available with lsblk command


[root@localhost ~]# lsblk
sda           8:0    0 894.3G  0 disk  
|-sda1        8:1    0   600M  0 part  /boot/efi
|-sda2        8:2    0     1G  0 part  /boot
`-sda3        8:3    0 892.7G  0 part  
  |-cl-root 253:0    0    50G  0 lvm   /
  |-cl-swap 253:1    0     4G  0 lvm   [SWAP]
  `-cl-home 253:2    0 838.7G  0 lvm   /home
sdb           8:16   0 894.3G  0 disk  
`-md5         9:5    0   2.6T  0 raid5 /disk
sdc           8:32   0 894.3G  0 disk  
`-md5         9:5    0   2.6T  0 raid5 /disk
sdd           8:48   0 894.3G  0 disk  
`-md5         9:5    0   2.6T  0 raid5 /disk
sde           8:64   0   2.2T  0 disk  
`-md5         9:5    0   2.6T  0 raid5 /disk

as you may read on those example, we have 4 disk: sdb, sdc, sdd and sde. Minimum requirement for RAID5 Configuration is 3 disk.
1. Install mdadm package
dnf install -y mdadm
2. Check if any RAID configuration in disk with mdadm -E
mdadm -E /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd /dev/sde
3. Create mdadm config with mdadm --create command:
mdadm --create /dev/md5 --level=5 --raid-devices=4 /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd /dev/sde
you may customize those command, especcially for --raid-devices parameter and /dev/sdX parameter.
4. verify the mdadm configuration:
mdadm -D /dev/md5
5. create partition on those RAID:
mkfs.ext4 /dev/md5
6. create a mounting point directory
mkdir /storage
7. get the UUID and place it on /etc/fstab
blkid /dev/md5
as an example: /dev/md5: UUID=" 3a27f241-d7c2-4e56-893e-93042ae62398" TYPE=" ext4" place UUID in /etc/fstab:
UUID=3a27f241-d7c2-4e56-893e-93042ae62398     /raid5   ext4     defaults 0 0
8. mount the disk:
mount -a
check with df -h

Setup Debian 11 Official Repository In sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list)

When you install Debian 11 using a DVD, the OS installer sets the DVD as the source for getting packages for your system if you didn't choose to scan for network mirrors. Due to this reason, the system would ask you to insert a DVD if the disc is not present in the DVD drive when you try to install any software.  Also, the packages on DVD may not be the latest release.  So, we need to get the packages from the Internet. Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04' in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press [Enter] The /etc/apt/sources.list file with DVD as a source would look something like below. # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04]/ bullseye contrib main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04]/ bullseye contrib main deb bullseye-security
