    I am a newbie and have installed the latest version of OMV and now setting up raid 1 which seems to be going just fine but I have something strange, at least to me. It's building the mirror but also showing 3 other mirrors listed as false. Can someone explain. Thanks in advance. Thanks. omv.jpg

    Whs works great for me. I use Macrium instead of built in backup due to the point you made. I know any form of Windows gets bad mouthed a lot but it's sure a heck of a lot easier to use and WHS has always worked perfectly for me. I will spend a little more time with OMV but I think I will end up back with WHS. Will post either when I have success I want of give.

    Still not finding what I really want. My server doesn't run all the time like most. I just used it when I want to watch movies and when I want to backup my pc's. My important data is saved constantly to the cloud and then once a week I want to be able to back up the complete server. I have to admit getting close to going back to Windows Home Server but there must be an easy way. All drives are mounted in the server. I just want a simple way to back up my 2tb mirrored raid to the third drive in t…

    I know that's a possibility but my server is hooked up to a substantial ups so though anything could happen I am not concerned. My critical data is backed up also on an external drive but that is a small amount. Will look at rsnapshot.

    I have a home server with 2 2tb hard drives that are mirrored. Everyone says that's not really a replacement for backing up so looking for an easy solution to backup my 2 tb drives. I have another 2 tb drive in the server just for backup. I am not as knowledgeable as probably most on the forum so looking for a way that I can just backup the raid setup to the 2tb backup drive that I can figure out. I don't need software to back up my other computers to the server, just a way to backup the raid se…

    I am not as technical as most on this site and have read until my eyes are sore. In simple terms I just want to be able to backup my server to keep everything safe. There is a combination of movies, music and lots of documents and photos, about 2 tb. I have read so much I get more confused. Is there just a simple way I can keep my main drive backed up if I do experience a failure. It was simple with Windows home server doing software raid but from what I read don't even want or need raid so plea…

  • Ok I fixed the problem but not sure if it's dangerous. I had to enable smb1 which in not enabled with a fresh install of Windows with latest 1803 update. Any opinions on doing this?

  • Instead of an update I did a fresh install so who know. frustrating.

  • Well that was a lot of work but it did work. I can access it by creating a shortcut on the desktop so happy about that. I use to just be able to double click on network icon but oh well this will do. Thanks so much for the help.

  • Thought everything was fine. My server doesn't run all the time as it's only for home use. After reseating the drive it took several hours to repair itself. I just turned it on a little while ago to back up a different computer and got the following message. Looks different. Everything looks fine in the gui. Can someone help. Thanks This is an automatically generated mail message from mdadm running on N36L-OMV A SparesMissing event had been detected on md device /dev/md0. Faithfully yours, etc. …

  • Thanks so much. got it. One of the drives was not locked in position in the server so all is ok. Appreciate your help.

    I just received this error after backing up one of my computers. This is on a server with two new drives in raid 1 configuration. Is this a big concern? Thanks in advance. A DegradedArray event had been detected on md device /dev/md0. Faithfully yours, etc. P.S. The /proc/mdstat file currently contains the following: Personalities : [raid1] md0 : active (auto-read-only) raid1 sda[1] 1953383488 blocks super 1.2 [2/1] [_U] bitmap: 9/15 pages [36KB], 65536KB chunk unused devices: <none>

  • I am transferring about 2 terabytes of movies, software and data from another computer to my new server which has raid one setup on it so I am guessing that's it. Been running hard for a few of hours. This is on a dual core system with a low power I3-2120T processor.

    Can't believe I am back. I have 2 data disk which I have setup for raid 1 and now with new combined drive raid name I am getting errors again. Just when I thought I had things handled. I also set to recursive like you suggested but every time I go back recursive is unchecked, Is there something different in setup with raid drives. forum.openmediavault.org/index…5720ba3578325df7487a531f5

    I actually have my backup drive in a slot in my server rather than in an external drive. What software might work with that or I guess I could just buy an external hd case for my backup drive. I also have another server running Windows Home Server 2011. That might be my preferred way to back up. What software on omv would I use to backup to my Windows server.
