    I have a RAID 1 enclosure that's encrypted using Veracrypt. I connected it to a RPI2b running OMV. I ssh'd into the Pi and mounted the encrypted device at /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Data. The volume is formatted with exfat and is labeled Data. The problem I'm having is that I can't create a SMB share on it. When I go to the add share panel there is no entry for this device in the Device dropdown menu.
    The device is listed on the Disks page and the file system is listed on the File Systems page with the device shown as /dev/dm-0. I am able to cd into the volume with ssh. How do I create a share on this volume?

    Thanks

    I have five disks inside a HDD enclosure (ORICO DS500U3) plugged on one USB 3.0 port of my RPi 4. Four of them are 3.5" HDDs, and one of them is an 2.5" SSD.

    I have several shared folders created from the HDDs, no problem here. However, I can't create a shared folder from my SSD, because it does now show up in the dropdown list.

    The SSD was previously wiped and formatted (EXT4) through OMV GUI. I can mount it through the GUI, and I can access it through SSH/SFTP using WinSCP. The only thing I can't do with it is creating a shared folder.



    I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

    I have not fully understood the concept of folders, shares and mounts of OMV... Currently I am thinking how I should share an rclone mount I need to distribute to my nvidia Shield.

    So normally I would mount the rclone mount to something like /mnt/whatever and put that into the smb config. As I already learned, this is not how to do I properly in OMV.

    So first, where do I need to put the rclone mount? On the OS drive? On a data drive? With the latter I can probably add it to the shared folders and work my way from there. Is this the proper way to do it?

    I used full disk encryption instead of an encrypted container within another file system. A file system was then created on that encrypted disk. Unfortunately, the file system I picked was exfat so that will need to be reformatted. So let's say I…

    This issue impacts both OMV4 and OMV5. Looks like the issue is specific to safari. the titles render fine in chrome on my Mac see example attached.

    No. It means it is very difficult to use exfat with OMV and if I understand veracrypt correctly (encrypted disk image file on a filesystem), you won't be able to access the veracrypt image from an exfat filesystem. If you move the veracrypt image to a…

    Does that mean it's impossible to use Veracrypt with OMV or is there a way to mount a Veracrypt encrypted partition from the file systems tab?

    In order to create a shared folder on a filesystem, the filesystem has to be mounted in the filesystems tab (not the cli) and exfat isn't supported by omv.

    Yes. I've installed Veracrypt on the RPi and used it to mount (and decrypt) the device. I am able to browse the decrypted volume via cli.

    Ping always works every time. If I can't make version 4 work, I will have to try 5. Thank you for your time.

    As I understand correctly this is a new install right? thing you didn’t mention is that if you have to reconfigure everything. That means mounting the drives (via the ui) and creating shared folders and accounts etc etc.

    Yes, you missed there is no upgrade path from 3-5. You would need to upgrade 3-4. I'm not sure there is a supported upgrade path from 4-5 yet. Regardless, upgrading 3-4 at this point is a pain due to closed repositories, etc (search the forum). If…

    Yes, I'll start updating all the docker videos for OMV 5 after one more OMV5 install video.
