Just so you know, I have already achieved this on one of my ubuntu-server which is working great. The reason why I'm not thinking to apply that same procedure on OMV is because for e.g. fstab and samba configurations are better handled through its web admin-interface. Therefore, I would appreciate a similar sophisticated solution through GUI. Or Is …
