I finally got around to getting a Raspberry Pi 4 --- I figured upgrading my NAS/Plex server from a Pi 3 was a valid reason. I grabbed the 4GB version, along with a green, aluminum heat-sink case from pimoroni:
Setting it up as a drop in replacement went smoothly enough. I wrote a new micro-SD card with the latest Raspbian, booted, logged in with
ssh, configured and updated Raspbian and then installed:
- OMV - configured with the same NFS shares as before on the existing 5TB USB-3 drive.
- Plex media server - pointing to the existing media libraries.
- rclone - manage your cloud(s) storage
- darcs - well, somebody has to use it ... and I like it.
- and some additional scripts from the Pi 3
A bit of housecleaning and key management around the network and everything is as it was ... and some things are faster.
Now, what to do with the old Pi 3?
