    • Fixed IP address for OMV

      Hi!

      I have a problem with OMV on my Raspberry pi. It seems that whenever i shutdown my RPI and turn it on the next day, my ip address it not the same.. That gives me a problem on my TV where i run kodi because i use the IP address of my SMB server.

      Does anyone have an idea on how i can make a fixed IP for OMV?
    • This is how DHCP works. Your router is what causes this. You can either give it a static dhcp address on your router (search on google for how to do that) or go to the networking tab and set the interface to static and give it an IP address. If your router was doing things correctly, you should be able to use the hostname instead of the IP address and then you wouldn't have to worry about this.
      omv 4.1.11 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.15 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.11
      omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

      Yeah i can see that it's giving me alot of problems and since the router doesn't allow me to do this it seems. On what Networking tab could i set the interface to static? on OMV Web GUI or on the command line?

      There are no tabs on the command line... In the OMV web interface, go to System -> Network -> Interfaces.
