    Hello all,

    I am totally new to OMV and just got an Odroid HC2 to store all my media.

    I see there is an OpenVPN client in OMV. Can this client be configured with a killswitch, so if my VPN is down it kills OMV internet connection?

    Since OMV is based on Debian can I ssh into a terminal and install software in the terminal? Is this not a reliable method to run programs on the HC2?

    Thanks in advance

    I have a helios4 with 2 x WD Red HDDs of the same type and size (NASWare 2 & 3) and none of those drives show up under the RAID section in OMV. They both show up under file systems as ext4. I tried wiping one of them, but it made no difference. I tried them both mounted and unmounted, no luck. Tried different kernels including 4.14.17, 4.14.18 etc.

    Anybody has any bloody idea how to make this piece of ... work???

    I have two computers for my media. My main computer has 8TB, 4TB and 1TB drives for storage. It is running Win 10 and under Storage Spaces setting i'm able to combine all 3 drives for the total of 11.8 TiB of storage. What i'm also able to do is remove disks or add more without having to set up the storage space from the scratch all over again. This works beautifully.

    Now, On the other computer I have OMV set up. This computer also has 8TB, 4TB and 1TB drives for storage and it is a back up of the computer above. I have added all 3 drives and created RAID stripe with 11.8 TiB of storage. However with this set up I'm unable to grow RAID or remove any disks without completely erasing the RAID and starting over. I understand that in RAID 5 I can make it grow but I dont want that because my disk space will be far smaller.

    So what would be the best set up for me to be able to retain my 11.8 TiB of space but also be able to add or remove disks?

    Thank you.

    After upgrade i cant get into Putty or the webgui
    Keeps saying connection refused?

    I have a ton of files on here should I just build a USB stick put 4.0 on it and install new? if so is there a complete article on steps to take to do that. Do i disconnect all drives for data first etc... thanks for your help

    Hi all,

    running a self build OMV NAS for some years now, I think I should upgrade to 3.x [or is 4.x already stable enougth?].
    At least I want my nas to be as stable as possible, even I also have a tripple backup of everything also.
    So reducing any needed management/upgrades is important to me.

    Never the less, The forum alread unveiled
    * Install from scratch to avoid problems
    * disconnect datadiscs during install

    My major Question, is there a advised procedure to backup the raid config of my dataarray and to restore it after upgrade install?
