    Hello,

    I am pretty new to OMV (had QNAP for years) and I am still in 'experiencing and testing' mode.

    Today I ran into a full rootfs after starting rsync to backup some data on an USB external HDD which is connected all the time to the NAS and mounted to /srv/dev-disk-by-label-backup/.
    The command executed was: /usr/bin/rsync -av /srv/dev.../media/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label/media/

    I found out that although the external USB drive was never removed from the NAS it seems to be unmounted or in some sort of an unknown state probably due to automatic spindown. It does not show up in the WebIF Drives section and I have to click on the 'Search' button to make it reappear.

    My questions are: How can I prevent such a behaviour (accidently backing up data to the rootfs because of a 'sleeping' device) and how could that even happen? Shouldn't the drive reappear automatically if a process is trying to accessing it?

    Thank you in advance

    Regards

    Hello community,
    Excuse my bad english.I am French speaking.
    I have a dedicated server with a single hard drive of 500Gb. I installed Debian 9.4 thanks to the management interface of my dedicated then OMV with SSH.
    In OMV I can see my hard drive of 500Gb but I can not select it. He is not present when I see him select him.
    How-is it possible to select my hard drive?
    Thank you 8o

    Hi,

    not so sure how to explain what I try to do, but I hope it makes sense.

    I have a Debian Linux Computer and run OMV on it. I use the VirtualBox plugin.
    Over the browser I can access my virtual machines from any pc connected in the network, including the pc that has OMV on it.

    My OMV pc is not located in the same room as my router, therefore it is connected via WIFI to the router (lan is no option)

    Because of this, virtual machines are slow.

    Is there a way to connect to OMV / virtual machines without routing things to the router that is connected via WIFI?

    Thanks

    I see several ways: - what makes the mount disappear? find the root of this and a remedy - use rsnapshot (a sophisticated script with exceptions, generations, ...) it does not start without the proper path mounted - write a batchfile that checks for an…

    I'm sorry. I should have said that I made a disk image using "dd" about a week ago. It just bothers me to just pull the plug. I know an SD card degrades that way. I had hoped that it would respond at some time, but I figure I have waited long enough.…

    If you're starting over, there's no need to worry about a clean shutdown. Just pull the plug. You might want to reboot it, if it will come up, just to see what happened. (Check the logs.) If you start over: In the guide, there's guidance about how…

    At this point I am still not able to do anything with the hc1. Ssh returns port 22: Operation timed out, and the web gui isn't there for Plex or omv for two days now. Right now I just want to shut it down gracefully and start over with a clean install,…

    The design of OMV requires a minimum of two "drives." One "drive" for the OMV system disk and one or more data "drives." Only data "drives" can be selected in the OMV GUI for shares, etc. When you installed Debian 9.4 was the result using the entire…
