    I'm running OpenMediaVault under KVM using Proxmox with a PCIe passthrough SATA card.
    This seems to work. I can't yet tell about the long term stability but it looks allright.
    However Proxmox is not able to see/control the used memory of the guest OS as the balloon functionality is not running (
    This is however included in the Linux kernel for quite some time now.
    Any idea how to fix this?

    Can't get MiniDLNA to work in OMV 4 on my Raspberry Pi 3.
    Installed through plugins page, no errors.
    service minidlna status gives:

    Any ideas?

    I've googled, but haven't understood what it is or what it does (or in this case, doesn't do...).

    Hallo! Ich habe leider einen riesen Fehler gemacht: In dem Glaube ich
    sei auf Version 3 von OpenMediavault habe ich das omv-release-upgrade

    Ich war allerdings auf 2, danach dann eben auf 3 und ich kam
    nicht mehr in die WebGui.

    Dann habe ich noch ein omv-release upgrade
    gemacht. Jetzt bin ich auf 4, komme aber immer noch nicht in die

    Wenn ich "apt-get dist-upgrade" eingebe kommt:

    kann ir jemand erklären, wie im Plugin WOL die Abfrage funktioniert?

    Hintergrund meiner Frage ist, wenn ich PI-Hole als DHCP-Server in meinem Netzwerk habe, werden Hostnamen angezeigt. Stelle ich aber
    den DHCP-Server auf mein Unifi Security Gateway um, werden nur die IP-Adressen angezeigt. Ich möchte dem Problem auf die Spur kommen
    warum das USG keine Hostnamen anzeigt.

    Vielen Dank.

    I am getting odd errors installing some plugins like shell in a box and nut:

    openmediavault-shellinabox : Depends: shellinabox (>= 2.18) but it is not installable

    And for nut, if I try and install the nut dependency that openmediavault-nut requires and complains about:

    sudo apt-get install nut
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package nut is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    It feels like I don't have all the sources or something

    You are right about needing to install the agent needing to be installed. It's is kind of in my mussel memory and I didn't think of that. I suppose using or not using balloon depends on how much memory you have and the demands on it. Thanks

    Hi, I am having this 502 bad gateway problem and have left the php-fpm pool selection as none. But there is no other pool in the pull down menu to select. I do not what the php-fpm pool actually is - does OMV allow me to set one up? I am not sure…

    Wie befürchtet, das Dateisystem auf dem RAID wird nicht erkannt. Wenn es unter OMV3 ging, dann bleibt nur die Version nochmal installieren und die Daten auf ein anderes Laufwerk kopieren und unter OMV4 das RAID nochmals neu aufsetzen.

    Replied to the thread OMV 4.x KVM memory balloon functionality not running on MediaVault when running in VM.

    I think qemu-guest-agent is in the kernel so no install would be needed. I have always enable it so it can shutdown from proxmox gui or system. I am sure it could be involved with other things too. To see if it is working once enabled with the latest…
