    Hello all,

    I'm new to OMV, migrating from my Ubuntu NAS.

    I'm trying to figure out, in the OMV context, how to install docker-compose and start docker-compose-based services (mailcow-dockerized in my case).

    Of course I could do the installation through the CLI & start the containers through a systemd service, but I'm not sure it's the proper way in OMV.

    Do you have any advice?

    Ich möchte mir gerne einen OMV-Server zusammenstellen.

    Dieser soll:
    - Möglichst leise sein (trotzdem eher keine Wasserkühlung) ->Sehr wichtig.
    - Möglichst geringer Stromverbrauch
    - ca. für 8 Festplatten platz haben
    - Gemäss OMV sind Intel CPU's zu empfehlen...

    - Reine Storage (Filme, Musik, Bilder speichern)
    - 24Std Betrieb, Jdownloader, mit Samba zum Libreelec, OpenVPN-Zugriff....

    - Sämtliche 3TB-WD-RED-Festplatten sind bereits vorhanden.
    - Betriebsystem werde ich auf der 480GB-SSD-Festplatte installieren (da vorhanden)

    Was haltet Ihr von dieser Zusammenstellung?
    Ist hier alles miteinander kompatibel/OMV-Tauglich? eventuelle alternativen ?(

    Danke für eure Hilfe!

    ich möchte euch heute gerne mein aktuelles NAS zeigen, welches ich zuletzt von Erasmus auf Arrakis fast reibungslos aktualisiert hatte:…f-4-arrakis-aktualisieren

    Der Weg sowie meine Probleme inkl. der Lösungen sind im Beitrag beschrieben.

    Auch mein neuster Beitrag könnte von Interesse sein, auf meinem OMV NAS läuft seit diesem Wochenende nicht nur die NAS Software, sondern auch mein IP-TV Tvheadend Server, die zentrale KODI Datenbank sowie IP-Symcon, eine Software für Hausautomation welche sämtliche meiner WLAN-Controller, KNX und Homematic Geräte sowie die Türsprechanlage steuert.…odi-datenbank-auf-dem-nas

    Viel Spaß beim lesen und schönes Wochenende

    PS. Ich seh gerade dass OMV 4.x noch als testing dasteht??? Dachte die wäre schon stable?
    Nun bisher läufts ohne Einschränkungen. SUPER Arbeit an die OMV-Entwickler... :thumbup:

    So I wanted to set my OMV computer to boot at 10 am. It is set to shut down at 2 am. So it will be off between those hours.

    Time in bios is set to right time with boot time set to 10 am.
    Time in OMV is set by NTP Server ( and I have the right Time Zone selected.

    The problems i am having is that the computer boots up at 3 am instead of 10 am. It shuts down at the right time. Im assuming this is something with Time Zones but I just dont see why this would be happening because I have everything set up correctly. There is no Time Zones selection in Bios. Does OMV adjust Bios time? If it doesnt I might just set the bios to boot at 3pm. Thanks.

    Quote from ryecoaaron: “New approach for Raspberry Pi OMV images ” Would that also work with OMV3, since you are point to RPi 4.9.80 kernel ?

    My experience with various *nix OSs is they always reset BIOS to UTC.
