  • Quote from votdev: “I think the best will be that devices connected via USB are not displayed in the RAID creation dialog anymore. This is very easy to implement. ” This would handle the entire issue completely since, if the problem is distilled down to the actual cause, it's RAID+USB. This applies to X64 platforms as well. Quote from ryecoaaron: “I like this idea but we might need a note mentioning this on the form. Otherwise, people will wonder why their drives don't show up. And for the peopl…

    No, it won't move anything. The files and folders on the removed drive will simply disappear from the pool.

  • Quote from tkaiser: “But not really helpful for those people who not visit the forum and ask (more than 2000 downloads per week for the RPi image -- how many of these users turn up here?) ” @votdev : @tkaiser has a legitimate point - most SBC users won't visit the forum looking for information on what not to do. The assumption would be, if it's possible to create a RAID array, it's OK. However, there's a middle ground. Rather than stop the RAID creation process, a WARNING dialog could be popped …

    Quote from geaves: “You do realise we (yes that includes me) are now showing our age we look at a PC as a functional item, it does a job and provided it does that job then we're happy. ” I still don't get it. I wouldn't want my workstation to look like crap but adding "bling" and "pimping it out" goes the other way, and turns it into a gaudy eye sore. Gold plating a hammer - what's the point? There's no accounting for taste. Quote from geaves: “I agree, I started looking into folder to ram but n…

    Troubles with your boot drive... If my boot media (where OMV lives) was throwing errors like that, I'd rebuild. Corruption of some sort is possible so I wouldn't trust it. I'd also be concerned with multiple drive failures, at the same time. A potential hardware problem? You might want to think about getting a live distro, and try to examine those drives and your hardware platform. If you want to try to rebuild; rather than buy a new SSD, build OMV on a 16 to 32GB USB boot drive. That's a lower …

    Quote from geaves: “I just googled that and there was a listing "Pimp your PC" this could get silly ” It's been silly for awhile now. You know, if it was a water cpu cooler or something similar, I could buy into the idea. One could make a legitimate performance argument. But flashing LED's, in three colors, and black lights? I can't believe that it sells!,, but what do I know? Maybe I should get on board with the trend,,, spray paint the main server white, plate the front bezel gold and get a Me…

    Well, I'm going to go out on the limb and say something is going on with /dev/sdd. Bad blocks - if we're talking about 1 or 2, maybe it's fixable for "awhile". Drives only last for so long. It may be time for a replacement.

  • 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…72dc855598b416b4cbcfdea18 ” 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…
