Re: rp4440 external drive

the build-in dual card is supported for either internal or external drives.
If the 2 internal drives are connected to the same bus, 1 external (channel B) is available for external storage.

If the 2 internal drives are on different busses, none of the external connectors are supported.

You may post an "ioscan -fn" if you are in doubt.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rp4440 external drive

Perhaps you are going to install an *unsupported* solution.

See my posting above.

Hope this helps!
