    Hi,
    I'm seeking advice on how best to implement a NAS backup process. I have an existing ReadyNAS that I would like to periodically backup with my PC based OMV box. Ideally I would like this to be totally autonomous where the OMV box is usually sleeping. Once a week or so I would like for it to wake, then search the ReadyNAS for any changes and update its database to keep it current. After that I would like for the OMV box to then go back asleep, waiting for the next wakeup event to repeat the same sequence.The intention here is to have a backup that is mostly offline and untouchable by any malware, ransomware or whatever that can be used to restore my systems in the event of an infection.

    Any advice on how to implement this?

    Thanks very much!

    Hi all,

    I'm on macOS 10.12.5 and OMV 3.0.71 and I can't login with my user credentials. I can not login via Finder, even though the BananaPi I set OMV up on appears in its sidebar. I can also not login via the Time Machine setup dialog, even though the drive appears. It's as if I'd enter the wrong credentials, even though I'm sure I don't since I use a password manager and just copy and paste them. The user has read-write permission on the share that is provided via AFP.

    The same behavior happens when trying to login via my user account, via the web admin or via root. It prompts me for username and password and rejects anything I enter. I have no idea what could have gone wrong.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I am having difficulty setting up my samba shares. I can see all the files on my drives, but I can't write to them. I tried reset permissions, and that didn't work.

    Here's how I setup the reset permissions:


    Here are the groups my user are in:


    SMB/CIFS settings:



    SMB/CIFS Shares:



    Settings of one of the Shares:


    Shared Folders:




    Reset Permission Settings I Used:

    All the shares show up, but I can only write to homes. I can read from the others.

    Not sure what is going on, I have seen more samba problems in the last month or two. On the smb/cifs page the default log level is none. Change it to debug and start samba. systemctl start smbd Then look at the logs for a clue. Remember to set it back…
