  • SNAPRAID+AUFS Replacing disks

    jollyrogr - - Plugins

    Post

    Whenever I have snapraid questions I find it's helpful to read the documentation on the snapraid website. I don't do things like disk replacement often enough to remember the procedure. To replace a data disk: snapraid.it/faq#repdatadisk

    why raid 1? I would recommend using an automated rsync backup or something along those lines.

    1. Buy new drive. 2. Install in OMV using Linux FS of choice. (I use ext4 but I thought I read somewhere that OMV was moving away from ext4?) 3. Copy files over your network from NTFS drive connected to a Windows machine to the new drive in OMV 4. Put NTFS drive in OMV machine and wipe/format to Linux FS of choice. 5. Repeat step 3. 6. Repeat step 4. 7. When all data is recovered from NTFS drives, wipe Windows drive and install Linux.

    what do you mean by "cards you created"? In order to avoid messing up file permissions its best to move files around remotely using samba shares or FTP or NFS, etc. If you want to do it on OMV via SSH, the files are located in the /srv directory. The home directory would be on the system disk and nothing should be in there.

  • SnapRaid + UnionFS NAS with 2 disks

    jollyrogr - - General

    Post

    I think you're confused about what unionFS does... unionFS or mergerFS merely combines file systems on discrete physical drives so that it appears to the user as one large file system. When you get a 3rd disk, you can setup snapraid with 2 data disks and 1 parity disk. You could optionally use UFS/MFS to combine the file systems on the data disks. But with only 2 drives, I wouldn't think it would be very useful. UFS/MFS is very flexible in that you can apply it to full drives and remove it any t…

  • Access to shared folder from remote

    What kind of access are you looking for? Using a VPN will allow you the same functionality as if you were at home. Setup the VPN on the router, and many routers have the ability to offer DDNS so you don't have to worry about IP changes. Alternatively, the most simple solution for basic file access is to use FTP and open a port for it on your firewall. SSH could (should) be used to prevent anyone snooping on your file transfers. DDNS could be employed as before for access to the FTP server.

  • Quote from JohnStiles: “Firewall on the router and firewall on the machine with omv. Firewall on your desktop too. Wherever it is possible and it makes sense, there should be a firewall on every machine. The only difference is the type of traffic policy for an individual machine that can be different from each other. ” This seems rather excessive and would only cause headaches. To each their own.

  • Definitely setup your firewall on the router and have OMV behind the firewall.

  • using spaces in Linux will give you headaches from time to time

  • Use the reset permissions plugin available from the omv extras repo. Very handy tool. I've also used chown/chmod

  • I've had this happen when transferring files on the server using SSH. If you move the files with Samba, you won't have this issue.

    Quote from ryecoaaron: “I run pi-hole on an old mac mini running Ubuntu 18. Much faster and more stable than an RPi that I initially tried. ” Which RPi were you using? Can't imagine Pi-hole needs much in the way of resources. There are other more powerful SBC's available now that might work better...

    Quote from flmaxey: “So ARM architectures run in Virtualbox VM's? Is that a recent development? I'll have to check that out. ” It's not ARM. It's a lightweight Debian based on x86_64. dietpi.com Click on download and then PC/VM and they have a virtualbox VM that you can download and run. No need to install. They have a built-in software installer that you can use to install PI-hole once your VM is running.

    Quote from flmaxey: “Why would anyone use an add-on outside of a Docker? ” I installed pi-hole on a dietpi VM running in virtualbox. I can't imagine a better way to do it other than using an actual raspberry PI. The only downside to having it run in a VM is that no one on my network has DNS if the server is down. My server is rarely down, but for instance if I had a power outage, I could run my modem, router, and rpi on the UPS for a very very long time.

    Quote from tkaiser: “Quote from JimT: “Is this the expected behavior? ” Sorry, I can't answer this since of course I do NOT use RAID-5 any more for a decade or even longer (single redundancy and large disks --> useless) IMO you should ask yourself why you're playing RAID and if the answer is data protection immediately stop and start to think about backup (that's data protection) and not availability or 'business continuity' (that's all what RAID is about) ” I don't think we need to jump on him …

    Periodically I see a whole mess of errors in my syslog. Here's a small sample. Is there a potential hardware issue? Source Code (80 lines)SAS HBA is a Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 on an Asrock H270M-ITX mobo. Haven't noticed any system stability issues or any issues whatsoever.
