    Here's my situation:

    I was using a WD Red 12TB HDD with my Odroid HC2, a Data drive. Not sure if it matters, but HC2 was running OMV4. This 12TB Data drive should be formatted EXT4, nothing exotic, no partitioning, etc. This drive has all my Movies, TV shows, software, etc.

    I recently built a new OMV Server running OMV 5, 6 x 4TB drive software RAID 0 array. I removed the 12TB drive from the HC2 & installed it in my new server, thinking it would be faster to move the files internally to the RAID array from the 12TB HDD over the internal SATA bus than over the network (if I'd kept the 12TB drive in the HC2).

    How do I "import" the 12TB drive into my new server without formatting it, so that I can transfer all my data from the 12TB drive to the RAID array?

    I'm trying to avoid having to put the 12TB drive back into the HC2 to transfer the files over my network (server has 10GbE, but HC2 is only GbE).

    Thanks

    hi, I have upgrade from OMV4 to OMV5 this when OK, However, I need to re-gen the fstab file. I did this doing the following:

    Shell-Script

    1. ovm-salt deploy run fstab
    This produce a non-working fstab, relevant section below:

    Hi all,

    i am a rookie, please apologise my lack of knowlede.


    I cloned my omv system drive from a 250GB Samsung SSD to a 32GB Transcent SSD by following this howto from bvrulez:
    How to restore OMV 4.X from backup-plugin to system SSD
    It worked flawlessly, after exchanging the Samsung with the Transcent SDD on the SATA connector, the system booted and everything is working like a charm.

    But now, i can see timeout events in the syslog, three times per hour 24/7.
    Somehow, the system still wants to do something with the old disk.

    I also do not have the 'old' samsung ssd available anymore.

    Any Ideas how to get rid of this are very welcome.

    thank you.

    I have no assigned network address, so can't get to the GUI. Any ideas how I can solve the problem? I do have two network interfsces, maybe I should disconnect one? I've just left it in the box as a backup netowkr jnterfsce....

    I wiped the installer USB, then plugged it in as well (so it'd mount as SDA, making my bootable OMV USB sdb). This worked, but I get to the login prompt and it hasn't identified a network interface for some reason??? It also will not login, it just…

    Put a current sensing switch module on the 12 volt line, aND use that to control the fan(s). Here is one that should be suitable. It has a delay as well, so the fan can run a short while after spindown.

    I switched the two new USBs around and it worked, so weird. I tried rewiring them, no luck, but switching them worked... But it was a pointless, as it's not finding the right dev to boot from still :S

    Never Mind - figured it out: The 12TB drive is actually formatted as BTRFS. Found it under the Disks menu. Didn't notice it since it wasn't mounted. Now looks like all I have to do in import the shared folders & should be GTG :)

    I did a couple of memtests, and all passed, no problems. The USBs are new, so I have tried a whole bunch of different ones. Installing Linux Mint boots done, even from the oldest USB, but OMV won't install or boot on any of them now.
