    • iSCSI Plugin - incompatible with 4.8 kernel

      Has anyone been able to enable the iSCSI plugin under OMV 3.0?

      I am able to install it, but when I go to enable, it returns an error.

      Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C; systemctl start iscsitarget 2>&1' with exit code '1': Job for iscsitarget.service failed. See 'systemctl status iscsitarget.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

      From the command line it appears that the kernel module is not compiling.

      systemctl status iscsitarget.service

      Multiple attempts to manually override, compile, re-install are met with the same outcome.
      Tried bare metal and virtual and got the same result.
    • It doesn't compile with the 4.8 kernel. I haven't tried recently but I would try install the proxmox 4.4 kernel (button in omv-extras) and see if it compiles with that kernel. Otherwise, you will need to install OMV 3.x with one of the older ISOs and disable the backports repo.
      omv 4.1.6 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.16 backports kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.7
