    • Everything is working as expected. But how can my OMV connect to another Lan Folder?

      From the beginning.
      I got my Raspi3. Installed OMV. Updated it to 4.1.7

      Did some resarch and got everything to work as i want it to be :D

      My raspi is connected to an 4 Bay HDD Hub.
      Every Bay got an 2TB HDD.

      The HDD_1 is under smb/cifs free for my network.
      Everyone can connect and use it. So thats fine

      I also got a WDMyCloud. The Cloud is also in my network and everyone can access it.
      Thats also ok.

      As far as good.

      I want the raspi to copy files from the Cloud to one of the 4Bay HDD's
      But i dont know how to add the Cloud Drive to OMV

      On the Cloud are Photos thats been automatically uploaded. I want these also
      on one HDD of the 4 BAY drive.

      But i cant find out how to add a network drive on OMV to act as a "HDD Drive"

    • 1. connect to your pi with ssh (or direct shell on same device)
      2. after login with root:
      3. apt-get install cifs-utils
      4. after install you can mount any drive with: mount.cifs -o username,vers=2.0 //yourwdcloudip/share /mnt/
      5. i prefer now using midnight commander so: apt-get install mc
      6. then mc
      7. go left to your share (/srv/...) and right to /mnt/
      8. you can now copy folder for folder or mark them before with insert key and use f5 to copy.

      9. after you finish: umount /mnt/

      Look at the remotemount plugin.
      omv 4.1.12 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.15 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.11
      omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

      Please read this before posting a question and this and this for docker questions.

      This plugin hasn't changed in a long time. So, it must be something wrong with your system because the glusterfs-client package exists on every version of Debian including a backports version for each - packages.debian.org/search?sui…keywords=glusterfs-client

      It even works on my RPi:
