    My OMV server :
    OMV version 4.31-1
    Kernel 4.19.0-0.bpo.6-amd64

    Problem:
    In the OMV GUI the list Package Information in Update Management is empty. See attached picture.

    Check for updates is working, no errors.
    OMV can connect with internet.

    Tried to solve the problem by:
    - empty browser cache
    - disable cookie filter and add blocker in browser
    - reset OMV GUI to defaults
    - restart OMV box.

    Problem still not solved.
    Before this happened, I was experimenting with the omv dnsmasq plug-in but I have switched it off and uninstalled it. Still no result.

    Any idea how to fix this?

    How can I edit /etc/samba/smb.conf in a way so that it sticks?
    I know it says not to edit it but there has got to be a way.
    Other solutions point to the folder /usr/share/openmediavault/mkconf/samba.d/ .
    I don't have this folder though...

    Found solution:
    In OMV go to SMB/CIFS and add any lines you want to Advanced settings -> Extra options

    I installed OMV from scratch by using this tuturial:


    Everything ran perfect until the installation of omv extras.
    Mentioned link was not working - but found on the website this install link:

    wget -O - github.com/OpenMediaVault-Plug…ckages/raw/master/install | bash

    got no error message, but after refreshing the omv page - the extras didn't show.

    I tried to download the .deb-file too (uploading, refreshing of course as well) but this was not solving the problem either.+
    I attach a screenshot of my system too, maybe it is helpful to get an idea.

    hi all,

    still using omv3 on my nas, but more and more updates fail and problems get more.

    i'm not a friend of "upgrading" so i plan a fresh install of debian + omv.

    the big question: omv4 is stable - but - i don't want to install omv4 and in summer it will get eol? but omv5 is "beta" how far away from stable?

    what i need:
    main: simple file sharing to my windows hosts (smb) think, will not be a problem?
    ftp / webdav for external
    docker (for my emby)
    jdownloader
    lets encrypt
    ddclient (or simular - just to update a dyndns)
    resync

    i'm right with omv5 will just go "final" from the beta without reinstall when final is released?

    i know beta is beta, but omv3 also was beta when i start and runs great - just tell me your 2 cent ;)

    thanks

    Hi

    I have built a Pi 4 with OMV 5.

    I cant get openvpn to connect dont know if i am doing it properly. I have port forwarded on my router 1194 to 10.8.0.0 the default address, is this correct? Or do i use the ip address of the raspberry pi. I have been using the open vpn cofig file with Openvpn from downloading the certs on my phone is this correct also.

    I have set up openvpn on another pi before with no problems but i cant get this one one to work.

    My settings are:

    Compression: Off
    PAM: On
    VPN address: 10.8.0.0
    DNS Srv: 192.168.0.1 (my router)
    Public Add: My ddns address

    Many thanks in advance for any help given

    Hi Hendrik, This is where I'm "dumb" with linux things. When I put the original drive back in and did a look at btrfs, I thought it just automatically was in "mount" status, like where it was before. I'm so stupid. Anyway, I'll mount it and do it…

    What you are seeing is perfectly normal if there are no updates available. What other method are you using to see that there actually are updates available?

    If you are only adding new lines you can paste them into the Extra Options box and they will stick. mkconf is deprecated with OMV 5.

    Very, very few users run split parity. Is there some reason you suggested a script for it? Regular script here: Source Code (1 line)

    There are a few good scripts out there and I strongly suggest using one after carefully configuring it. The part of these scripts that will keep you out of trouble is the one that will refuse to run a sync if the number of missing files exceeds a user…
