    • Mounting remote disks to use as first volume configuration

      Hi guys,

      I was wondering if I could mount remote disk into an array with OMV ?


      I have a computer "A" with empty disks at some place and I dlike to install OMV at another place 400 km away on computer "B" but still using my "A" HDDs.


      Is this possible and what should be the steps ? thanks
    • We're building a NAS for a small company. 20-30 users.
      Basically there'll be running a CIFS share and maybe some webdav.
      My boss dliked to use the HDDs from the datacenter for all the data written by users and replicate them all here on the disks at the office where the server will be running.

      Not sure it's really usefull considering the bandwith tho its a point i must provide an answer with.

      capacity is quite ok on both side, and data traffic isnt that large, full backups run for less than a Tb.
    • If you had two identical OMV boxes, you could use syncthing to sync the two systems. You could also have the users on one end VPN into the main server. Then you would only need one server.

    • So, you want OMV at the office to be able to access disks on server at datacenter?

    • yeah i wanted to use OMV system at the office + disk for data at the office and remote disks for backups; but my boss asked me if we could swap the remote disks with the local one, using the local ones for backups and the remote for access and data and work. While still having OMV system at the office of course.

      Tell him that is a bad idea. You wouldn't be able to do any work if you lost your internet connection. Just rsync the disks from OMV at the office to the disks on the remote server on a regular basis (hourly?)
