  • Read floppies directly from OMV

    I get what you're trying to do, and I know it's not what you asked... but this makes absolutely zero sense to me. A 16gig flash drive (which can be had cheap).. is the equivalent of over 11k floppy disks. Wouldn't it make more sense to move your data to a much more commonly used format, that you could use on virtually any computer you happen to come across? Looking online, 16gig flash drives are between $4 and $7, for some pretty popular brands. You could take 1, 16gig flash drive.. create folde…

  • Quote from akurzawa: “OMG is this a joke? This is the failure of this system. Wow I didn't expected that - I've working on numerous file system appliances, but I can't remember that any of them would not have ability to save and restore config. I was planning to put OMV on production but I need to reconsider that - previously I was thinking of FreeNas - which of course have ability to backup and restore config. Omg I can't believe that programmers of OMV didn't think of creating/restoring config…

  • Assuming your hardware is good.. Did you check the ISO's integrity? How did you write the ISO to the USB? Assuming that checks out.. I'd try installing Debian 9 from the official netinst iso, make sure the system is up to date, then install OMV on top of it. The end result will be the same, just a longer way of going about it. The current OMV 4 ISO was published in March 2018, while the latest Debian 9.6 ISO's were put up on Nov 10. Get the netinst ISO you need and put it on the USB drive. I'm a…

  • Quote from EngineWong: “Pls advise for me action below: 1. Add a new User in OMV web page 2. Enable it for SSH 3. Login as new user in SSH 4. Enable root and change rrot password ” 1. Create a user under the "users" section of the webUI (remember usernames are case sensitive) 2. Choose your shell (I prefer /bin/bash) 2. In the user creation window, click the Groups tab 3. Make sure "SSH" is checked 4. Save and apply settings for the new user 5. SSH the server as your new username and enter the p…

  • Not super familiar w/ the Pi version, but under SSH, do you have "Specifies whether it is allowed to login as superuser." enabled? If I'm not mistaken, this is disabled by default... SSH as root is really bad practice IMO.. You should create a user, SSH as a user, then change to root if/when needed.

    The scheduling is weird.. If you set the "hours" to 1, and the Minutes to "0"... it will check once every hour at the top of the hour. If you set the hour to "1" and the Minutes to "5", IIRC, it will check every 5min for an hour (then start over at the next hour if I guess). By setting the hour to "1" and leaving the minute at *, it is just checking over and over.

    Never used Nextcloud... just saying Seafile is very easy to setup if you follow the tutorial.

    The thread here on the forum for setting up Seafile, is excellent. It started off a little rough but several of us worked through some of the minor issues, and it ended up really working out. Setting up access over the Internet is easy How to install Seafile with MySQL and SSL

    Are you sure the flash drive is good? A lot of times on stuff like this, it's a flaky flash drive causing the issue.

  • Data would disappear? I've been using OMV since .2 (around Sept, 2011), and have never had data just "disappear". Regardless of that.. If the RAID card has solid support in Linux, it should work fine. I'm not really familiar w/ Adaptec, so you'll have to investigate that on your own. File storage.. I can't see how this could be an issue... It's a NAS operating system, that's what it's designed to do as it's basic function. Plex or Emby are both well supported (some folks report having issues w/ …

  • Unable to install Plex

    sorry, that command should have been apt-get -f install (sorry, a little tired right now).. but I think it's more or less the same result.

  • Unable to install Plex

    It looks like it's complaining it can't find python, which makes no sense... as I'm pretty sure that is in the standard Debian repositories, not in any 3rd party repo.

  • Quote from raulfg3: “ PD: if you use 1 disk for data and boot, you easy lose your data when a problem appears, if you use separate disk, you can reinstall OMV in a new boot disk and no data is lost. ” First, I totally agree w/ the above. I'd rather not use the OS disk to store data, if it can be avoided, simply because if the OS disk fails, you're going to lose the OS and data. Personally, even when I ran my NAS with other OS's... I always did it this way and never had a problem. Second, using a…

    Quote from 1uke_: “Hello, I know there are many articles on the Internet that cover this but I just wanted to open up some discussion as I will probably have additional follow up questions. I'm in the process of getting my homeserver set up. The server will act as a file server and media server. I'll mostly be storing data on my server but I'll also be occasionally streaming video. I currently have Open Media Vault running for my OS and I'll most likely end up setting up the disks in a RAID1 con…

  • Abandoned plugins

    KM0201 - - Plugins

    Post

    Just my personal opinion (and it's exactly that, as I know squat about programming or I'd be happy to help)... I think in the beginning, the plugin feature was pretty new, and it seemed everyone wanted a plugin for everything, and this made little sense to me then, and it still does to me now. You eventually reach a point where there's more useless shit than things that are useful. Some of these plugins really have little use on a NAS (virtualbox and extplorer were the ones I could never figure …

    Quote from majorpayne: “I used an external NIC which allowed me to get the system up so i could install the kernal through omvextras and it worked like a charm” I have an old Atheros NIC that has worked w/ Linux for ages, and I used it in this manner to get a friends box up and running w/ OMV. It really is the easiest way, if you have an extra NIC laying around. If you don't, and you have a spare computer, just take your OS drive, disconnect all drives in the spare computer and put the OS drive …

  • I haven't used FreeNas in ages... but essentially, you're right, they are the same in giving you a way to back up data, etc. Nothing really radically different, it's a NAS. The Plug-In feature, which adds features to the OS, is pretty awesome. Take a look at omv-extras.org if you haven't already to get a look at the 3rd party plugins available (although on the new website, it seems like 90% of them aren't listed). JBOD is very simple to setup and just fine if you want to use it.... I use ext4 on…
