    Hi all,

    Got an issue and a question about mergerfs.

    First up, I'm running OMV 5.05 installed on a VM inside Proxmox 6. I've currently got two Seagate 3TB drives passed through to the OMV VM.

    I've successfully created a mergerfs filesystem, but am having problems creating multiple mergerfs filesystems on the same two drives.

    As the attached screenshots will show, I can create more than one, but when I go to share them in "shared folders" section, they all come up with the same name! I've tried destroying them and re-creating, but the same issue occurs.

    My questions:

    1. Has anyone else encountered this? Or know how to fix it?

    2. I guess I could just create multiple shared folders within the single mergerFS (thus ignoring but not solving the original issue), what would be the upsides/downsides of doing it this way instead?

    Any thoughts would be great :)

    Thanks

    Hey OMV Guru's, quick question for your all.

    So, I'm planning on having a few external USB drives (HDD's) to backup my central stuff on my OMV server, one external drive per one internal drive, so the external is an exact replica of the internal.

    My question is this.

    If I go down this route, is OMV/USB Backup using /dev/ identifiers or UUID's? Since I will be using multiple drives what I don't want to happen is two or more external drives (only one drive will be connected at any one time) to end up with the same /dev/sdx identifier and thus overwrite whatever is on disk B because it thinks it's disk A.

    xteve.de/

    Admittedly, Yes I am a major Linux noob, so that's probably my problem.

    I 'installed'/started Xteve as root and realized this was not recommended. How can I undo what I did? I used Winscp to delete the .xteve folder it created in root. But now, when I 'reinstall' it, after I go to to provided host/port, IP:34400, it takes to me an xml looking page w/ txt and no gui.

    I think I need help installing this as a 'regular' user. I created a 'dawg' account, but how would I install the xteve bin file as dawg. I tried, but says dawg doesn't have access to certain folders. I'll have to re-run it for the error msg.

    No one know if enabling support for DOS attributes can mess with my ACL? :(

    Yes, I have two HC2 running with 16TB Exos X drives. Works fine! It takes my current "storage strategy" to the extreme: Several tiny cheap (relatively) SBCs running OMV, each with a single huge expensive HDD, connected together via nfs, autofs and…

    I'd vote for leaving portainer as it is. It's not realistic for users to expect portainer to be 100%, "out of the box", compatible with *ALL* Docker images/containers that currently exist, or those yet to be created. In a similar manner, I wouldn't…

    @macom THX, there you see, that I'm not too far into Linux yet :huh: . I haven't even thought using a symlink to bend the dir to my DB SSD. I've to read and try that.

    @ryecoaaron THX, The reason, for moving it, is that I keep a very strict data storage guideline to myself. Kind a obsession ;) . I do have an extra SSD for all DBs, that can be moved, e.g. mysql.

    OMV only use about 8GB. And of that 8GB most is free unused but available storage. You can still safely use a bigger card. I do, without problems. A bigger card might be considered a waste, but as I said above, you can see it as a form of over provision…

    I wanted to start to investigate this further, using different cables and probably USB ports, but when I switched off the Pi it won't boot ow anymore. Welp. Let's see where this goes.

    I think that the Docker platform should regulate the issue of ports and that Squeezebox should change the ones it is using because Portainer, although it is a container itself, is the "host" of many applications. I do not think it is OMV's task to solve…
