    Hello Guys,

    i need your help, i mount an external USB Harddisk with ntfs on my OMV System and configure USB Backup to sync any folder to the external USB Drive.

    The USB drive is mounted under File Systems, then i would run the backup job and i became an error that te storage is not mounted (see in attached file).

    Then i go to File Systems and the drive is dismounted.

    One time the Sync has started, but no it won´t work.

    Can anyone help me please.

    best regards

    I have two RPi3 OMV3 installations which each have an SSD for booting and OMV, then a data disk HDD. When I use root=/dev/sda2 in /boot/cmdline.txt OMV tries to use the data disk HDD as the root device, rather than the SSD when the HDD is connected, but works fine when it is not. I have tried put the UUID in /etc/fstab and tried using root=UUID=ae708a4d-982a-4a20-965c-01ec7e1f32b3 in cmdline.txt, but the boot just hangs. This happens even if I disconnect the HDD before powering up.

    It looks like OMV does not like UUID for booting, or this is not supported but it is very hard to figure out which it is. Is there a simple reliable way of making sure the right partition is used as root when booting? I suppose I could try pointing to /dev/sdb2 and see if that works, but I would rather have a foolproof setup if possible.

    Hallo Zusammen,

    nach einem Stromausfall gab es bei meine OMV das Problem, dass mein RAID5 - Verbund nicht mehr angezeigt wurde. Nachdem ich das System neugestartet hatte, wurden mir wieder die drei phyisikalischen Festplatten angezeigt, der RAID - Verbund war allerdings komplett verschwunden. Anschließend habe ich einen neuen RAID5 - Verbund mit den Festplatten erstellt. Leider muss ich um ein Dateisystem anzulegen die Festplatten formatieren.

    Gibt es einen Weg nochmal an die Daten auf der Platte zu kommen?

    Vielen Dank für jede Hilfe!

    Im Anhang einige Informationen zum System.

    For the second time in 2 months, the shares wouldn't mount on my OMV NAS.

    I don't know how to proceed other than to reinstall OMV from scratch. I'm not worried about the data volumes, I'm confident they're there. I believe it is something that has glitched again on the thumb drive (sdg) that is booting this setup.

    What bothers me is that this setup worked for YEARS until a couple of months ago, and now, it has crashed twice in as many months.

    Any steps I can take to try and repair it before I go full-blown re-install?

    I should also note that I was using OMV backup plug-in, but I can't find any instructions on how to actually do a recovery.
