The open network attached storage solution

    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!

    Simple requirement: I'd like to be able to access a Samba share from any stock, unmodified Windows 10 machine with NO login and NO password. Years ago this was easy, but Microsoft has made it progressively harder with seemingly every update. Is this even possible these days?

    I have read dozens and dozens of forum posts (here and elsewhere) to no avail. Most are outdated because Microsoft keeps changing things.

    My sense is that this is no longer possible without making local group policy changes to the Windows box (which defeats my purpose; I want anyone with wifi access to be able to easily read (only) these files). But I've never gotten a definitive answer on whether this is the case. Does anyone know?

    If it is possible, can someone point me to a definitive, up-to-date tutorial on it?

    Hi all,

    I built an OMV install out of an old HP 550-150qe. This came with the following items I'm carrying forward:


    1. Intel i5 - 4460
    2. Hynix 8 GB (2 x 4GB) PC3L-12800
    3. Western Digital - Red 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
    4. Western Digital - Red 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive


    I run plex and virtualbox headless on there currently (use VM for pihole). I outgrew the motherboard when I purchased 2 X 2 TB WD Red drives a few months ago. I wanted to upgrade further with some 8 TB drives since I'm coming close to capacity (1.5 TB) and obviously ran out of SATA ports on the mobo since it only has 3. I also transplanted the motherboard into a desktop style slim case so I'm actually out of space all together. Fast forward to this week and I've made a new build:

    pcpartpicker.com/list/4zKs9J

    So the build above will increase my storage quite a bit. The current setup is that I have software RAID (BTRFS underlying) on the 2 X 2TB drives and all my shares located there. So the…

    I don't use a scratch drive... Even with medioocre storage drives (5400) my data accesses plenty fast enough for me. I don't use Plex or Emby anymore, as I found I liked just pointing Kodi at a network share much much better. I do a good bit of torrent…

    Umm @tkaiser thanks. Yeah mostly media, not the end of the world if I lose everything. I'll backup and do backup just the primary important stuff.

    Looks good. For me it works without typing https. What message do you get, when you try without?
