    • Sync storage from omv to google drive (or other cloud)

      Hi all,

      I recently installed omv and configured it so that it receives backups from different pcs on a scheduled base.
      Now I want to install A programm like insync or grive to Backup these backups from omv to google drive ( or other cloud storage )
      But insync doesn't seem to run on a headless system and grive needs at least debian jessie .

      Has anybody got grive or insync running on omv , or has an other solution?

      support.insynchq.com/forums/di…/insync-for-linux-beta/p1 "As a desktop app, running "insync" in a terminal runs the main application.

      As a command line / server app, running "insync-headless" is faster and will not display the system tray applet, context menu or update badges (file emblems)."

      Well, I don't see which version of debian is needed for it, but I highly doubt it is for Jessie only. Here are the deb files: lbreda.com/grive/download you may try to run them on a virtual machine first!

      Hi David ,

      when you search for grive in debian archive, you see it listed for jessie and sid , I tried installing it anyway but the versions of the depencies were all lower than required.

      Also tried installing insync ( I already saw your link, so I thought with the "insync-headless" it should work , bur installing stop with error, and package as programmed not to report details.

      OMV 0.6 will be based off Wheezy. Don't ask for any ETA. "It's done when its done."

      I saw on forum that there are test-builds of omv 0.6 available,
      What would be the right procedure to upgrade my system to omv 0.6?

      ps , I know that it's not ready for production servers, but if I would want to take the risk.

      Source Code

      1. mkdir -p /srv/ftp
      2. omv-release-upgrade


      If this does not work or you get any error message, please create another thread cause this is not the right topic for that. :)

      Assuming you have omv-extras installed and use omv-release-upgrade, you don't need to. The upgrade script does it for you.

      @ aaron, afaik the omv-release-upgrade command comes with your omv-extras plugin..? If yes, couldn´t you implement the mkdir command?

      The omv-release-upgrade comes with omv 0.5.48+. I add a pre-release upgrade script.

      The change is in openmediavault-omvextrasorg 0.6.22.1 which is in the repo.

      Thanks , upgrade to OMV 0.6 succeeded :D

      Got insync-headless installed and backupfolder is now syncing to google drive.

      Update, not dirs under backup folder were synced to google drive, I thought it was a file permission issue , so I thought I chown folder to root.

      I did a ; chown -R root:root /* in the backup folder.

      I think this was wrong and now whole sytem has been set to root:root :?

      Can I undo this??

      Any time you lead with a slash, it will be the root directory no matter what directory you are presently in. You changed the entire system to root:root ownership. There is no easy way to fix it. There are a lot of files that need openmediavault:openmediavault ownership. You should've chown -R root:root * while in the backup folder.

      The first thing I would do would be:

      apt-get install --reinstall openmediavault

      There will probably be other files with wrong permissions though. If it were me, I would reinstall...

      Is there an easy way I could backup current setup and config files before reinstall ( LVM, NFS, minidlna, plex etc..)
