OMV on Proxmox

    • OMV 2.x
    • I got a Opteron 3280 and an ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 with a 760g chipset. Primarely I'm using the server as a File-, Plex- and FTP-Server. I got a Pool and Snapraid. But I'm using some VMs for Testing, Encoding and dont to get the omv basesystem messed up to much. It would be nice to get some snapshots by Proxmox (btw: is it possible to use the VMs of Proxmox in another Server?)
      Can I Passtrough the hdds without IOMMU?
    • the last time I tried to run anything alongside of Proxmox it was a disaster.
      I wouldn't want to deal with all the complexity of it.
      it's KISS for me :)

    • I agree. OMV runs very well in a VM on proxmox. I currently have six OMV VMs running on my Proxmox server.

      why do you think you do not have IOMMU on this CPU?

      how did you test it ?

      For what do you need 6 OMV VMs?
      One is my main file server. One is for plugin development. One is an OMV 2.x VM for testing plugins. One is my master OMV 3.x VM that I make clones from. The other two are VMs that I am testing OMV and plugins. I clone the master anytime I want a fresh VM to test things in.

      I also have Ubuntu 16 and Windows VMs :)

    • Got it. I only looked at the CPU, and it has the support

    • No. What OS? You have to have to vm tools installed on the guest to shut it down from the web interface.

      No idea about smart.

      Of course aufs is faster. It is a native kernel filesystem instead of a fuse filesystem like mergerfs. I never use the writeback cache either.

      and how can I read SMART?
      if you are passing HDD through to OMV vm than use SMART option on OMV webUI.
      if other OS you need to research SMART tools for the OS in use

      FYI: once you do pass-through on any hardware, Proxmox will not be able to access said hardware until it is released. so if in your case you pass hdd to VM
      only that VM will be able to read SMART or other info on the drive. for all important use and porpouses the device is not installed on the host OS.

      Mount the disk as virtio devices and you should get the SMART info in OMV.
      he is using pass-through HDD into OMV VM.
      can you still mount them as virtio device?
