The open network attached storage solution

    Hello OMV-Community,

    I use OMV 4 on a Raspberry Pi 3b+ with 2 USB-Stick for personal data (~80GB) and a 2TB HDD for media (~1TB of music, videos, pictures). I use the in build Plex addon and in the built in docker I am running my smarthome (Home Assistant, Mosquitto, etc).

    But now I want to upgrade this "NAS", one reason is, when one of the storage dies, its gone. I do backup of my personal data every 2-XX weeks ( :whistling: ) and this is to risky for me, now.

    What I want?
    I don't know so much over NAS-Systems, but what I know for I backup I need a RAID 1 to mirror on storage. I want my Personal Data and my media on one Storage (3-4TB HDD) for RAID 1 backup.

    What is the best system for this?
    The Raspberry Pi 4 got USB 3.0, so it is smart to put 2x 3-4TB NAS-HDD on this USB-Ports? Or is a mini-ITX build the way to go?
    I don't really have a price limit, but it should be not to expensiv :D

    Greetings

    Hello everyone,
    Yesterday I've installed OMV 4.1 and Plex plugin through OMV-Extras. Everything was fine.

    Today however... Plex service is still up and runnning (screenshot no.1). I can connect to it from PS4, no problem at all.

    The problem is - in admin panel, "Plex media server" disappeared from "Services" tab, so I can't configure it now (screenshot no.2). What could be the reason of this?

    Hi all,

    Union Filesystem Plugin: I have a MergerFS pool setup as follows:

    Source Code

    1. /dev/sde1 1.9T 2.0G 1.9T 1% /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WD2TBTwo
    2. /dev/sdb1 1.9T 2.0G 1.9T 1% /srv/dev-disk-by-label-WD2TBOne
    3. /dev/sdc1 3.7T 1.3T 2.4T 36% /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SGT4TBTwo
    4. /dev/sda1 3.7T 1.3T 2.4T 36% /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SGT4TBOne

    SDC1 is parity...the other 3 are inside a MergerFS pool. So I have a motherboard replacement that needs to take place...which means I'll have to reinstall OMV on the system drive. Since MergerFS spans data across drives, what's the proper way to take a pool that was on one system and get it up and running on the other system without losing data?

    Has anyone ever done this before? Am I over-complicating things?

    I have my RPi4 in a flirc case and it helps the temps but I don't think the RPi4 should be the first choice for a NAS. I have a lot of SBC boards and I would still pick the Nano Pi M4 with sata hat over all the others.
