The open network attached storage solution


  • New

    After my old QNap with OMV 3 overcome its lifecycle i am looking for a small installation for a backup system with one Harddisk, running OMV 4/5 and simply rsync'ing my home-nas providing the backup via nfs/cifs.

    I think I do not have high demands, looked for a Odroid HC2 while having a ironwolf 8TB Harddisk at hand. But in Germany it seems to be sold so I need alternatives ... what else Setup seems to be suiteable? Looked for RockPro64 but dont know if attaching Sata Drives Via USB3 is good / performant. Is a external usb-drive the same as direct attached sata3-drive in the HC2-Setup? ... What do I have to buy to run it 24/7 and where? Is there something else leke the HC2, while i like the dedicated straight design ...

    first, i hope everybody will understand my poor english ;)
    i found many thread speaking about modifying parameters in monit configuration, but i didn't found a thread about adding a new entry.
    I just want to monit with a network ping test if a device is connected or not on my network, and if not, send an alert.
    I thought it was exactly what monit does, that is why i want to add a service in monit. but i don't know which file adding/modifying to do this being sure that omv will not reset all i have done when reboot.
    thank you in advance for your help

    I have a, maybe stupid, question. And my English is only so so, so I am sorry if my grammar will make it look like a cat have walked on my keyboard.

    Shortly, what I am worried about, that the drawer I have bought for a “pc case” we’ll get to hot and damage the rock64 pro and hdd.

    But my idea is to drill a hole in the back of the drawer and the draw the wire for the power extended and the Ethernet cable through the hole. I also attach the rock64 pro to the bottom of the drawer with pc spacers. But I am worried that the power supply for the rock64 pro and hdd case would make the drawer too hot and will make to much heat in a closed area?

    If that could be a issue then I would probably cut a hole to a pc fan and some other hole in the drawer to make some air circulation. But is it necessary?

    Have I have bought if

    Your disk seems to be corrupted, i suggest to replace it. Check the status of the disk with SMART. If you've enabled emails notifications you'll get the notification that your system is under high load loadavg(5min) of 4.1 matches resource limit
