    Hi. It used to be when you made a raid there would be a spinning ball thing or a percentage cannot remember which.

    Now when you create a raid it says to wait until the raid is initialised before creating a file system, however there is no visual feedback, how am I supposed to know when its good to go?


    Also I had another raid of two disks in stripe, both disk were showing as failing in SMART so I pulled them, this was obviously wrong as the file system still shows but as missing. So far as I can tell there is no way to remove this which is a bit of a pain because when starting up OMV it spends ages looking for it. Is there no way to delete this without n00bs rooting around in files?

    Hi all,

    I am at my wits end with this................

    So new build on the following platform
    U-NAS case 8-bay
    Supermicro A1SRi-2758F motherboard
    32GB ECC Registered
    LSI SAS 9211-8i IT mode
    8x 4TB Toshiba N300 drives

    OMV 4.1.9

    Wiped all drives and installed as required.
    Built an array in RAID6
    Filesystrm BTRFS
    Created shares, account etc.
    Connected and started transferring data across
    After a few hours a couple of drives disappeared

    Did exactly the same again and same result
    Tried a third time, but this time 4 drives disappeared and the RAID array disappeared and upon reboot 7 drives are there.

    Drives are good, 3 are brand new, other have a 1000 hours use only.

    I have tried everything, but would like assistance to help get it working and to find out the problem.

    Failing this, it'll be Freenas as I know that works on this platform

    Advice or suggestions??

    Thanks in advanced

    So this is what happened.

    Last night I was watching shows on the OMV server via Plex app. I started to get errors that the media can not play. No biggie some times I need to do a update because I am a couple of revisions behind.

    Did a apt-get update and the command hung. So i figured maybe the cache is full, this box hasn't been rebooted in months so that is possible. I rebooted the box and go the following screen.

    [IMG:https://ibb.co/iBhGfp]

    I am going to take that my sda1 drive which is where OMV is installed has gone bad or is going bad.

    My hard drives are in a usb NAS storage that plugs into the box. My question is this.

    If i reinstall OMV to a different drive will I be able to just plug the USB back into the box and all of my files are safe?

    Which ISO file are you using? This one should be the correct one: sourceforge.net/projects/openmediavault/files/4.1.3/ This ISO is not a life system, but is used to install OMV on a target drive.
