    I am so sorry to raise this issue but despite my having read all related threads on this forum (and all I can about LInux permissions generally), I really just do not understand how permissions and ACL work together.

    Perhaps someone can help explain with a practical example, to help me understand:

    I have a single hard drive in my server and I create a single folder on it called "Recordings".

    I then want to install TVHeadend on my system. I need this application to have access to the "Recordings" folder to actually create the .ts file in it.

    What type of permission would I give to the "Recordings" folder, from the dropdown box?

    Would I have to change make any additional changes under ACL?

    I've set up the snapraid plugin and did some tests. I managed to "undelete" for example.
    The problem is that when I want to try to replace a data disk, it does not work.

    Anybody done that successfully in the GUI? The snapraid manual is for the command line and I find it very difficult to "translate" the recovery steps to the omv plugin.

    My setup:

    • data d1 /mnt/disk1/ (Content, Data)
    • data d2 /mnt/disk2/ (Content, Data)
    • parity /mnt/disk3/ (Content, Parity)

    Quick question, I would like to run a virtualbox of Windows 10 on my OMV host computer. I would like to access this virtual machine on my host machine (not through a web browser or web gui but using the OMV's host display). My current setup is the opposite of that (Windows 10 running an OMV virtual machine) and I am beginning to see the limitations of this implementation, especially since this PCs primary function is to be a NAS and secondary function is to allow access to office, web browser, youtube, etc. If this is possible please help me out. Can I do this through the virtualbox plugin or should I be installing a version of virtualbox through the terminal?

    Hallo

    Ich weiß nicht ob es hier paßt, bei Bedarf verschieben.
    Ich wollte eine externe Festplatte an einen USB 3.0 Controller anschließen, der als Steckkarte im PCIe1 Steckplatz meines HP Microserver steckt. Schließe ich die Festplatte daran an, wird sie nicht in der WebGui angezeigt. Nur wenn sie an den internen USB 2.0 Anschlüssen steckt wird sie angezeigt.

    1. Wie kann ich überprüfen ob die Steckkarte von OMV erkannt wurde?
    2. Muß ich die Steckkarte irgendwie OMV bekannt machen?
    3. Wenn das alles funktionert, kann ich eine 3TByte Festplatte die NTFS formatiert ist in OMV einbinden? Ich habe gelesen das OMV NTFS formatierte Festplatten einbinden aber nicht formatieren kann.

    If the OMV4 OS were to reside on a USB 3.0 flash drive . . . Does the USB 3.0 stick, when mounted in a rear panel 3.0 slot, still access RAM for the purpose of being able to put OMV4 into a Wake On LAN scenario?
