    Tried to log into the web gui today and was told my username or password was incorrect. Tried the usual stuff, no luck. I'm certain I didn't change my password since the weekend, but decided to just do a re-set with omv-firstaid and be done with it.
    When I try to execute the control panel admin password change, I get the following error.
    Updating control panel administrator password. Please wait ...
    ERROR: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; usermod --password '$1$wITgGd9N$iASwhljseorIBYRc.f5hx/' admin 2>&1' with exit code '1': usermod: cannot lock /etc/passwd; try again later.

    I did find this thread with a similar issue, but the steps listed there don't work for me. forum.openmediavault.org/index…update-OMV-on-raspberry2/

    Also, I'm not sure if this matters, but the system seems sluggish.

    Any ideas?

    Hi there,

    I would like to use a new 128 GB SSD for OMV 4. At the moment OMV 4 is running on a 500GB HDD with some OMV-Extras-AddOns installed.
    OMV is managing a RAID of 4 HDDS.

    I would like to know if there is an easy way to transfer OMV from a 500GB HDD to a 128 GB SSD. The storage of 128 GB would be more than enough.

    I am a bit afraid of loosing my RAID.

    Hallo Leute,

    ich nutze seit einger Zeit OMV 2.x, welches mittlerweile veraltet ist und durch eine neuere Version ersetzt werden soll.
    Dafür hab' ich mir auch einen besseren PC besorgt.

    Nun ist wohl OMV gerade im Umbruch zwischen den Versionen 4,5 und 6.
    Version 4 und 5 habe ich zum Test mal aufgespielt und durchgeklickt.

    Die 4 ist der Version 2 noch recht ähnlich. Ich bin mir aber nicht sicher, jetzt noch ein OMV4 aufzusetzen...
    Allerdings habe ich bei OMV5 (Release kommt verm. im 4. Quartal) Probleme beim Verständnis mit Docker - hier wären lediglich CUPS und OPENVPN für mich interessant. Aber ohne eine gute Anleitung für den Umgang mit Containern in OMV wird's mehr als schwierig.
    Wir die Version 6 wieder "Anfängerfreundlicher" ?

    Wie sind Euere Empfehlungen / Erfahrungen ?

    OMV 3 is based on Debian Jessie. Debian Jessie reached End of Life in June 2017 and Debian shuttered the repos for it. You may be able to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list per the below link to receive LTS Debian security updates until June 30, 2020, but…

    Um.. but what are you really concerned about? Because, you know, CSM is just a part of UEFI to provide legacy BIOS compatibility for legasy OS (wiki) And as OMV is not legasy OS, so using this option is not very useful either, is it?
