Cannot mount two filesystems after upgrade to 4.0

    • OMV 4.x
    • Upgrade 3.x -> 4.x
    • Cannot mount two filesystems after upgrade to 4.0

      Hi everyone,

      I've recently decided to upgrade from OMV 3 to OMV 4, update went well and I didn't get any plugin issues since I don't have any.

      After the upgrade I was unable to mount two of my filesystems on the NAS, both are ext4.

      I can see the two disks in the Disks menu, but in the File Systems menu they were in "Missing" Status.

      Firstly I tried to format one of the two drives, hoping that by creating a fresh partiton OMV would've automatically mounted it as well, with no success.
      Then I verified that using SSH I was able to mount the drives by using

      Shell-Script

      1. mount -t ext4 ...

      Other things that I tried are:
      1. Remove all the references to these filesystems (and shared smb folders) from /etc/openmediavault/config.xml
      2. Perform a fresh install of openmediavault by using apt-get purge openmediavault && apt-get install openmediavault and using the first setup tool to configure a fresh install.


      I am running out of ideas about how I could resolve this issue. Any suggestions?

      Hi!
      Did you solve the mounting problem?
      I got the same problem yesterday.
      Is your file system ext4 too?

      Hi,
      Sorry if I am a bit late.

      In the end I discovered that for some reason the file system of my drives was not proper ext4, despite I was able to mount them as ext4 manually, but they were listed as "zfs_member" by a command line program that now I can't remember.

      So the only workaround I could do was mounting the drive manually, moving all the data to another disk and using the wipefs command to be finally able to format them as proper ext4 drives.
