UPS, configuration backup and docker backup help

    • UPS, configuration backup and docker backup help

      Hello! In the past days I was able to create my own NAS using a motherboard and CPU I had and I installed OMV 3 without any problem.
      I'm still testing things out and if everything works as I want I will probably upgrade my configuration in a few months.

      I have some doubts and I hope someone is able to help me clear my doubts.

      1) UPS
      I have a TRUST 1000 VA (trust.com/en/product/17680-oxxtron-1000va-ups) and I connected it to the NAS with USB.
      I can't figure out in OMV how to set that the system has to shutdown when the battery is reaching low. I installed the plugin called openmediavault-nut 3.2.12 but I really don't know how to make it work.

      2) CONFIGURATION BACKUP
      Is there a way to backup the OMV configuration (filesystems, shared folders, plugins installed and so on) so that if one day I'll reinstall I will have already most of the work done?

      3) PLEX DOCKER BACKUP
      I'm using the linuxserver.io docker container for the Plex Media Server.
      I see that I can "commit". Does it mean that it will create a new docker image with the setting I'm using (variables, folders) and so if I run that image I will basically have the same PMS server I have now?
      Is there a way to keep this image if I reinstall OMV so that I don't have to start from scratch?

      Thanks in advance for any help.

      There are a lot of threads here in the forum regarding this topics. Please use the forum search.

      1) A very common configuration for USB is:
      driver = usbhid-ups
      port = auto

      More information here: http://networkupstools.org/
      One important point: The UPS must be connected and powered on when the plugin configuration is done.

      Set the "shutdown mode" to "UPS reaches low battery".

      2) Clonezilla (System -> omv-extras -> Kernel)
      You have to install omv-extras before.

      This link leads to an UPS without an USB connector. On the pictures I can´t see any USB or serial connection? Are you sure that this is the link to the correct device?

    • Yes you're right, the one I own is the 1300 VA (trust.com/en/product/17679-oxxtron-1300va-management-ups). In the past I used to own the 1000 VA that's why I mixed them up.

      I tried the different setting but I still get this error:
      Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C; systemctl start nut-server 2>&1' with exit code '1': A dependency job for nut-server.service failed. See 'journalctl -xn' for details.

      Did you try to configure the NUT plugin while the UPS was connected to the NAS and powered on as I wrote some post above? The nut-service tries to communicate with the UPS immediately by clicking on the 'Save'-button in the plugin. Otherwise this error is generated.

      What is the output of journalctl -xn on the command line?

      If your device is connected properly and you still get this error maybe you should have a look at the NUT hardware compatibility list to find a compatible device.
