  • mount SMB share

    Hi I’d like to mount a samba share – located in my NAS box – on my laptop running linux mint. I tried editing FSTAB a couple of times but I can only access the share in read mode. What’s the correct syntax to use to gain R/W access? Thanks FT

    The offsite backup really is the only advantage…(for the average home user!)

    It looks like a good service but I think that for the average home user you can’t beat the cost and convenience of an external hard drive. The 55$ per month, which I guess is for 10TB of data, is 660$ per year. This is almost the cost of 3 - 8TB external hard drives (in USD)…

  • Quote from bobafetthotmail: “ Other stuff is just disabled by the plugin to avoid unnecessary writes (like say downloading packages whenever there are new ones in repos, to make a faster install when updating, which is not really needed). ” on my raspberry pi new packages are always downloaded...? is there a way to check that the plugin is working correctly?

    For sure it should be an option and every user can then decide what to use. Incidentally, the pluging list is... massive! and this is one of the best assets for OMV. Great job!

    ...good news...but it's still closed source... This is the main reason why I'm using syncthing now.

  • Which 4TB HDD?

    I would go for the RED or for the HGST as they are NAS products (designed for 24/7 operations). I would also consider the guarantee period. NAS drives usually have 3 or 5 years guarantee vs. 1 or 2 years for desktop drives If you google around you will find that the Green drives for example are not recommended for NAS application as they tend to park the head too soon to save power causing excessive wear.

  • I think that it will be fine. Have a look at the snapraid manual here snapraid.it/manual.html. the limitations section says that symlinks are saved....

  • I’m not an expert on AUFS but if you want to try something a little more stable try MHDDFS (same plugin I think) as it has been reported in other websites to be a bit more robust. Can I ask why you are pooling your disks? Is it for media files? In this case there’s a nice guide on this forum written by tekkb here…it may be useful. I hope that this helps. FT

    Quote from lulu99: “Hi. 1) USB is not working because OMV is within a HYPER-V as VM and Hyper-V can not passthrough USB to a VM. 2) For that I can not use any plugin, right? So how can I make that?” for 2) I don't think so but maybe somebody else here has another idea…

    I can think of two ways of doing it… 1) Use a USB enclosure, permanently install the hard drive there and use the USB backup plugin (this is what I do with my backups) 2) Rsync from the data drive to the backup drive running an rsync command every time you plug the drive.

  • OMV on Linux Action Show

    great. more and more good press!!

  • when you used Gparted the UUID of the partition where OMV is installed changed. use gparted to check the UUID of the boot partition that you have now is the same UUID listed in /etc/fstab. if they are not the same change the UUID of the partition using gparted so that they match

  • You could install OMV on a raid 1 system but you need to know what you’re doing and to be honest it would be an overkill. I think that you should install it on a normal drive (ssd or mechanical) and then use the system backup plugin to make copies of the system drive regularly. if your system drive dies you can replace it with a new one and then clone the old installation. Remember that if your system drive dies you won’t lose any data as the data drives are separate.
