  • If the controller is integrated into the Mobo, I'd look for downloads on the Gigbyte site. Otherwise, if it's a card controller, I'd check to the maker of the controller for management software. I had an Adaptec controller that would "blink the light" but being able to blink the light from the controller's BIOS has nearly no value. You could do a small reference file or spreadsheet on a client as well. (These are practical suggestions because I suspect that you may not find what you're looking f…

  • If you have a sas controller, management software for the controller might do it (if you mean blink the drive light). In OMV, under storage Physical Disks, you'll find the HD model number and serial number, matched to the device name /dev/sd?. Drive model and serial details are usually printed on the drive label which, in hot swap bays, usually face up. Since you have hot swappable bays, finding a specific drive shouldn't be hard to do but it would probably best done powered down. If you're in a…

    Quote from geaves: “ discomaxey 'he can light up your server' forum.openmediavault.org/index…0153fd85e375ad540c7238282 ” Ha - Ha - Ha... (accompanied with a S-L-O-W clap). Actually I was wrong. Some mobo's have 5 pin headers for RGB light strips, not fans. Light strips? Now THAT's an indispensable option,, that one couldn't do without. @ryecoaaron is right, as usual, the 5th fan pin isn't connected at this point. (Lights later, who knows?) Since I can avoid a "splice and solder" job, I'll wait o…

    Ok, I'm catching up. The first post (with the mc screen shot) appears as if you're trying to copy data to the full drive. (Not what you want to do.) You want to go the other way. Copy from the full drive (left) to the drive with space on it (right). Verify that the data was copied to the correct location (in the same location on the destination as it was on the source), then delete it from the source (the full drive). Check and cross check what you're doing. Delete is permanent. Stick with folde…

  • If you have the default Docker setup, OMV is storing the Docker images and containers on the boot drive. This is no big deal. Dockers are so small (most of them), they don't take up much space on the boot drive. ((If it's a downloader or something else like Plex, it makes sense to relocate their data directories to a data drive, but they're designed to allow that.)) Without knowing how you have Docker setup; A "container" is in several locations, under the folder where they're stored. That's ano…

  • Quote from chuckado: “I have it set to use my docker shared folder as the docker base path so I would assume that is where the configuration for all the containers are. My question is, is there a way to figure out where these configurations were placed by default on this shared folder so I can move them to a permenant location which would allow me to modify the container and have it come back to life with its settings. ” I think I understand what you're getting at - you want certain configuratio…

    Quote from geaves: “My W10 laptop has decided not to boot can't find boot device, gotta run chkdsk as I can't get spinrite to run. ” That doesn't sound good. Spinrite won't run - a drive controller issue? I attempted to reload my wife's slow laptop and consistently got I/O errors. It's not even worth fooling with it. The new one is on the way. ______________________________ In the way of minor annoyances, my theater PC's (i5) CPU fan is a bit "loud", so I bought an Intel fan/heatsink combo. Whil…

  • If you're interested in drive-to-drive Rsync, the setup is in this guide, starting on page 61. This setup will create a full mirror on a second drive. Please read the cautions carefully and consider leaving the --delete switch out of the command line, until you have two full copies on your hard drives. (Depending how much data is in the initial copy, it may take some time.) After the initial copy is complete, if automating the Rsync job AND using the --delete switch, consider using a backup inte…

    Well , yeah, there are usually several ways to skin the cat but purge should have worked. On the other hand, (again) the Docker problem could be just the most visible symptom of something else that's gone wrong. Do you want find out, down the road, that something else is awry? (Like a file system utility?) You know for a fact that, after a power outage, Docker is doing odd things. Without knowing precisely why, rebuilding to fix it all (even the issues that are not visible, yet) is the prudent c…

    The fastest way to do it would be midnight commander. apt-get install mc Then mc midnight commander works left to right. Whats in the left hand window will be copied to the right. After rebalancing your storage, you might want to consider a storage policy change.

    The messages aren't consistent. You might be going down a rabbit hole. The only way to be sure, would be a rebuild.

  • Quote from JakRuzL: “I use a Win10 laptop for work. I have a raspberry pi 3b and 2 500G (western digital I believe) drives with nothing on them. All I really want is to have multiple locations of the same set of files for redundancy just incase I lose access to one of the drives due to failure or if one of the drives needs disconnected and sent to my home office quickly. Obviously, I prefer not to have to copy file manually everywhere. In my mind I see 2 different workflows which would be reason…

    Choices are narrowing... (An UPS's looks like a great investment at this point.) ("Leases" is in the error message. Usually that's a DHCP function, but Docker has it's own internal IP network and I've never looked that far into it. "Leases not implemented" in the Docker context might mean that Docker has no control over running containers or there's something wrong with the IP stack.) ___________________________________________________________ Docker can be force purged on the command line as fo…

    There are two types of Mobo's - those with integrated video output and those without a video output. Those without a video output generally (not always) need a video card just to boot. This is idle speculation but, something about installing the ssd changed operating parameters in BIOS. (There are several BIOS versions out there, all of them different.) While it may be a curiosity item, you have two working choices; go back to your original profile (before the ssd) or leave the video card in. If…

    Quote from kmal808: “I tried creating a container via the CLI and got the same error. Would the OMV docker plugin have any bearing over that? ” This is speculation but I would say "generically" NO. The Docker plugin, for all intents an purposes, is truly a lens into what is happening on the command line. (And as we all know, even with Windows, the graphical stuff is Dev's being kind enough to show us what is going on in the background.) Still, with solid OS backup in hand (so backing out is poss…

  • Quote from Markess: “Other some drives, most of my OMV and home server hardware is used or repurposed. Besides the cost savings, using something a generation or two "old" (even if its bought "new" on Ebay or Craigslist or etc.), ensures better compatibility with the Debian Linux running underneath OMV itself. ” This is a very salient point that many users miss; if one wants to use Linux (saving hundreds to thousands on software costs) AND wants a high performance server, the Linux kernel must be…
