      No ISO yet. OMV 3.x to 4.x upgrades work well or you could install Debian Stretch then OMV. Not all plugins are ready yet though.

      Source Code

      1. echo "deb arrakis main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault.list
      2. apt-get update
      3. apt-get install openmediavault-keyring postfix
      4. apt-get update
      5. apt-get install openmediavault
      6. omv-initsystem

      I guess we just interpreted OMV 3.x being maintenance mode differently. Maybe he was waiting for more omv-extras plugins to be ready? "Official" posts also make lots of people upgrade. I don't think any of us are ready for that yet.

    • If OMV4 is ready then it will be announced, until then no blog post or other information will be announced about new packages for version 4. OMV3 is still maintained but without new features.
      Absolutely no support through PM!

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

      apt does not allow installing from unsigned repositories, so

      Source Code

      1. echo "deb [ allow-insecure=yes ] arrakis main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault.list
      2. apt-get update
      3. ...
      will do the trick, till 4.0.6 arrives.
      but be aware to reset it, when the repo is signed!
    • Just chiming in

      I upgraded to Arrakis yesterday. overall went well and everything is working fine, A little bumpy, collectd and rrdcached has had error in syslog but omv-mkconf took care of that. no other issues I can say were related to openmediavault

      Only issue I can report at this time is the on the webui on the services page, the running indicator for UPS is red. however NUT seems to be working normally, so no big deal. could be something I did, but worth noting

      thanks to everyone on the OMV team

    • Hi guys,

      Is there an issue with dockers on 4.x ?
      I'm not able to get any image installed, docker gui plugin is enabled and i have used a directory called docky on my disk raid.

      root@nas:/media/fac202db-49d5-4dba-92b0-bee63109d140/docky# ls -lrt
      total 80
      drwx------+ 2 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 containers
      drwx------+ 4 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 plugins
      drwx------+ 3 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 image
      drwx------+ 2 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 volumes
      drwx------+ 2 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 trust
      drwxr-x---+ 3 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 network
      drwx------+ 2 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 swarm

      drwx------+ 2 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 tmp
      drwx------+ 3 root root 4096 Nov 3 09:16 overlay2

      As you see the framework has been copied well, but when i search for example for transmission i get the popup but when pressing start i only see a fast refresh of the dock page and the popup start button of transmission come back, nothing installed. Can this be a rights issue?

      UPDATE: i tried chmod -R 777 docky , still no luck, nothing able to pull

      CLI test works and after doing this on CLI it shows up in the GUI, but i'm not able to pull anything in GUI, don't know if this is an 4.x issue or known issue, not able to find info, any help appreciated.

      Hello from Docker!
      This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

      To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
      1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
      2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
      3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
      executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
      4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
      to your terminal.

      To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
      $ docker run -it ubuntu bash
