      I used OMV3 long time, few days ago reinstalled my server and run OMV4.
      All is fine with OMV4 its great soft but i have 2 problems with unwanted spam in my syslog by this what you see above.
      I read i can filter and hide unwanted message in syslog by some filter rule: unix.stackexchange.com/questio…-in-var-log-syslog/151652 but i dunno its good solution. I would like to know what triggering this information and how to fix this.

      And the second problem is similar:

      I temporary resolved this apt spam information by disabling and stop services:

      Source Code

      1. systemctl stop apt-daily.timer
      2. systemctl disable apt-daily.timer
      3. systemctl stop apt-daily.service
      4. systemctl disable apt-daily.service
      5. systemctl stop apt-daily-upgrade.timer
      6. systemctl disable apt-daily-upgrade.timer
      7. systemctl stop apt-daily-upgrade.service
      8. systemctl disable apt-daily-upgrade.service


      And it helps. All apt, apt-daily log informations dissapeared but i dunno its good solution.

      But still existing and the most annoying problem is:
      server systemd[1]: Time has been changed
      server systemd[1]: anacron.timer: Adding 2min 43.402558s random time.

      It can fill 25 log sites in omv web gui in few hours. How to fix this?
