As I'm fairly new to Linux I wonder how to set up my RAID for network-wide access to use it as a NAS also from Windows.
I got a used Server with an Adaptec 6405 Hardware RAID Controller and added 4x 2TB Seagate SkyHawk HDDs. The setup of the RAID with the Hardware RAID Controller was pretty straightforward (I chose RAID 5).
To start the Server I installed Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS on a USB flash drive (will move to an SSD). From there I mounted the RAID which I currently set to ext4 filesystem and can now see it from the server side.
As I want to use the RAID as a NAS for all my data, I need to access it from Windows, ideally simply via File Explorer Network/$raidname. When all is set up and data transferred, I'll of course do a backup to store off-site as well, but first I need to be able to access it.
So my question is: What do I need to set up in order to use it from Windows?
All help or links to threads I did not find is appreciated. Most threads I found dealt with the software RAID side of a software-based solution.
