    I urgently need your help, so any suggestion is appreciated!

    I decided to reinstall my OMV setup from scratch and after it was done, I can't access the File Systems. All Physical Disks (BTRFS, no RAID) are loaded but when I go to File Systems after a long loading phase I get an Error: "communication failure".

    Already reinstalled it on different devices - USB 3.0 HDD and USB 2.0 flash drive but always the same issue. I really need your help!

    I have the OMV running from an old WD 250Gb black sata disk and I have received alarms regularly that it is too hot (over +55° C).

    That is not extreme but I dont like it in the long run. Especially as the other disks stays below 40° C...)

    So I cloned the disk and started up the system with the cloned disk and I get errors.
    First there is no network interface.

    And below that I get this error:
    "CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation.
    CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -101"

    And a couple of more lines like that.

    I suspect that I need to use omv-firstaid but I am not sure if I should do something else first.
    And for that matter what tools I need to use.
    "Configure network interface" seems like a nobrainer, as that probably will solve the network inteface (i hope).
    But I am not sure that'l fix the cifs errors.

    I have switched back to use the old drive for the time being.

    Hey guys,

    I know there are plugins out there such as Sonarr, etc. But I wondered is there a plugin avalible for OMV that will keep track of my libary of TV series and notfy me when there is a new season? I don't need it to download or anything I just want it to notify me that there is a new season as I find my self having to go through my SMB libary and cross reference every TV Show I have to see if there has been any new season releases and soemtimes I'm a couple behind so an interface that allows me to can my media and be notified of any seasons that I dont have would be awesome.

    can you access the file systems from a terminal? Edit: What kernel are you running? I think the default is 3.16. It may not support BTRFS?

    Yes, my OMV is booting without problems and I can use the GUI etc. (also all my HDD's are listed in Physical Disks) but the only thing I can't access is the File Systems menu.
