    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
    Michael

    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

    I'm hoping someone can help me troubleshoot an issue with failed checksums when pulling docker images:

    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

    Regarding rsync backup scripts. I recommend that you write your own. Test it and make sure you understand what it does. And what it doesn't do. Then you can use that script again and again with confidence. If you Google "rsync backup script" you get…

    You need to check that the drive is mounted before you start transferring files to it. Perhaps in the script that runs the rsync commands to do the backups. Some quick googling gave this method: if grep -qs '/mnt/foo ' /proc/mounts; then echo "It's…

    I wouldn't bother backing up the PLEX metadata folders. Instead make sure that the video files are backed up. In case all of the plexmediaserver files are lost plex can be reinstalled easily and automatically update and download the metadata again. But…

    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.…
