The open network attached storage solution

    Hello dear community,

    I have a question about the source of the package.

    I have OMV installed without internet access, so I could not specify a package source and therefore no one was installed.

    Of course there is the possibility to add the sources later in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault.list.

    But I do not want to grant my NAS Internet access in the future and implement it only in the home network.

    Therefore the question:
    Can I also manually install the updates, that is, the data that is normally automatically deployed from the package source?
    If so, can you tell me which file I can insert, so that I can see the updates in OVM without being automatically pulled from the internet?


    I would really appreciate your help.


    Best regards
    Andy

    Hello, everybody,

    I installed the OMV on an old PC to convert it to a NAS. Then I grabbed old webcams, soldered USB cables to them and my Windows notebook found them as USB cameras as expected. For this I bought two cheap IR emitters with integrated photo cell, which are simply operated with 12V. These are there to give the cameras hidden light in the dark, so to speak.
    Now to my question: Do I have the option of connecting the two USB cameras directly to the OMV, so that it can possibly use a plug-in to make motion detected recordings?

    Thanks everyone and also to everyone working on this incredible Project named openmediavault!

    I've been reading a LOT about OMV the last few days and I'm ready to get busy. The docker stuff is amazing and I'm going to migrate my emby setup to the OMV machine when all is said and done. Since I'm starting new I'd like to do this right the first time...

    I notice a lot of people balk at using a USB drive for boot. That doesn't bother me with the flash plugin. I built a test setup last night to poke around and used an SD card and once it boots the interface is plenty fast. With that in mind I believe Techno Dad Life liked a USB for boot, an SSD for scratch/downloads/whatever and then big drives for media etc. Tell me if I have this right...

    USB is just Debian and OMV and extras/plugins. Uses 8 gig regardless of drive size.
    SSD is for docker containers/app data and downloads and things that will be used locally on that machine or moved around to media shares.
    Media share drives are obvious.

    Is that pretty much right? I watched the Techno Dad Life video on one drive setup and it…

    Attached a screenshot of the message. I've tried it from different endpoints, browsers and connections, so that firewall/proxy message does not refer to my home network setup.

    2gb of ram should be fine. OMV runs well on many arm boards with only 1GB ram. I would first run omv-aptclean (omv-extras needs to be installed). Also, how old is the usb stick?
