    Quote from rnutter: “that is what I am looking for help with. ” TBH without appearing condescending you won't get any, using a raid option with usb drives is a bad idea, creating one on a Pi even more so, using a powered usb hub does not negate the…

    Posted the thread OMV 5.x (beta) Install OMV5 via command line over Debian 10.

    Thread
    Hello, I normally install OMV via command line after installation of Debian. I need it because during installation of Debian I can format my big system-drive in several partitions. According to this how-to I did it with OMV4 Source Code (10 lines)But…

    Two possibilities, as I see it: 1. Some hardware problem. The NIC is bad? The port in the switch is bad? Network cabel is bad? 2. IP clash. The OMV box has the same IP as some other device. Or possibly, some other device has the same IP as the OMV…

    Did you look at the github. You don't have to host it. github.com/d8ahazard/FlexTV WEB-ONLY VERSION What's that? You wish someone would just host Flex TV for you? You don't feel like messing around with webservers and port forwarding and…

    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.

    A nice first step could be to get a 4GB RPi4, a GbE switch and a good BIG external HDD for backups. Don't use RAID. RAID is nice if you REALLY need >99.99% uptime on a web site or big corporate server and have staff that can quickly fix broken drives.…
