    • 2 issues after installing OMV on HC1

      1) followed a video. step by step. saw the device on router list.
      2) COULD NOT see storage by any computer on the network. (1 hardwired to router) other 1 is wifi. (3 - wifi channels. but I figured it should be seen by all 3 channels since HC1 is hardwired into router.
      THOSE 2 MACHINES ARE WINDOWS 7 PROFESSIONAL AND WINDOWS 10+ VERY NEW. I OPENED SHARED NETWORK AREA ON BOTH AND CAN SEE EACH OTHER.
      3) AFTER CREATING ALL USERS/PASSWORDS - I FORGOT ""ADMIN""" PASSWORD. LOL Do I have to RE-INSTALL OMV and starl OVER? or is there back door to get admin password back or restored or REPLACED.?

      Use Putty to ssh in your machine. Use omv-firstaid to reset the password for GUI access.
