  • In the mean time, since you have 2 each 4TB drives, you can achieve full data drive backup with Rsync. This guide, on page 64 (in the current version) explains how to set up it.

  • Quote from neurotone: “If I could pick your brain for a moment what would you recommend for raid? Now that you know basically what I use OMV for. ” First, if you have backup (at least for personal files that can't be replaced), you're way ahead of most. The only way to insure that you'll keep your data is to back it up, as in a second copy of everything you want to keep. Otherwise, it's just a matter of time.... "RAID", for most home servers, doesn't make a lot of sense. While RAID solved a few …

  • Keeping in mind that video files are large, what will be the bulk of your media storage? Video? *Edit: I saw the thread you looked at RE SNAPRAID & UnionFS. If you set up that way, you should be fine.

    Quote from wgmcg: “sigh... what a joke. You know, it's time for software "engineers" (lol!) to consider that maybe their work does more harm than good. ” Well, unlike Microsoft, here you can get your purchase price back, no questions asked. (Sorry for the poor sense of humor.) ______________________________________ You might have to rebuild. It happens. Even with commercial products like Microsoft - I've had hardware, device drivers, etc., that resulted in the Blue Screen of Death. This is nothi…

    I agree with all above. I've looked at more than a couple packages. UrBackUp is the best I've found and that includes commercial products. I've done bare metal restorations with it, and they're both easy and fast. If you're thinking about giving it a try, you might find this -> thread useful.

  • Quote from tkaiser: “Quote from crashtest: “Address the user, not me ” 'The user' hopefully knows where to look at (fallback behavior to guest logon if authenticated logon fails in 'non domain' situations. ” Here we go with another continuation of thread nonsense. Think about it - if the user knew - would they ask the question? Quote from tkaiser: “I was not talking to @ras07 but to YOU ” This is the basic problem. If you don't know by now, I'm not interested in your opinions on an operating sys…

  • Quote from tkaiser: “Quote from crashtest: “The Domain login "might" need an extra step (not tested): **Before setting up a user in Credential Manager, I'd test access first. A CM user may not be necessary.** Set up a user name and password in Credential Manager. (The same username and password used to login to Win10 would make sense, but any username and password would do.) ” What an insane BS. ” The above is not even relevant because, again, I clearly stated that the login with the MS account …

  • Quote from tkaiser: “So much confusion spread again... support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4046019/ ” Did you read it? That bulletin only applies Win10 Enterprise and Education editions. That's clearly stated, both in the bulletin and in the previous post. There's no confusion here. Win10 Enterprise and Education editions are fairly rare, corporations and schools only. I just tested the permission settings, with Win10 Pro / local logon, using a username and password unknown to the server. It worked…

  • Quote from ras07: “Simple requirement: I'd like to be able to access a Samba share from any stock, unmodified Windows 10 machine with NO login and NO password. Years ago this was easy, but Microsoft has made it progressively harder with seemingly every update. Is this even possible these days? ” First, there are two exceptions; Win10 Enterprise and Win10 Education editions. These variants are setup for Domain security, out of the box, so a policy change would be needed. _________________________…

  • Quote from Driven: “I know I can get by without an SSD but the first rule around here seems to be use what you got . ” Absolutely. Learn on something that's either cheap or free. If you find that what you have works for you, great. If you find you need something better, at least you'll be shopping with the knowledge of what you need, in hand. Quote from Driven: “I have a source for free, lightly used, older parts and a 128 SSD ” Then, I have to say, I really like the SSD idea. __________________…

  • OMV in BerryBoot

    crashtest - - General

    Post

    Adding OMV to "BerryBoot", for an R-PI, is not a good idea. Openmediavault (OMV) is used as a NAS which doesn't lend itself to a part time role. If you want to evaluate OMV as a home file server, media server, etc., I'd suggest that you get another SD-card (8 to 32GB) that can be dedicated to that purpose. This -> guide will get you started.

  • Quote from Driven: “I could use a variation of that to install OMV to the SSD, repartition, use the rest of the SSD as originally planned (scratch, downloads that will be moved, etc) ” I've been using USB thumbdrives as boot drives for years, with no problems, using the flash memory plugin of course. In this respect, I agree with KM0201 and @TechnoDadLife - separating the boot drive from data drive(s) makes recovery of either far easier. And if the OS is on a USB thumbdrive, cloning it for backu…

    Quote from savellm: “in the sense that when OMV goes to v5, I dont need to worry about my data in doing a fresh install. ” OMV5 will support ZFS, just as OMV4 does now. It's OMV6 where the BTRFS proposal may take effect. Looking at this from a support angle, you wouldn't have to worry about your data. Even if the "BTRFS Only" proposal is implemented in OMV6, it's still unlikely that ZFS support would simply be shut off. It's very possible that ZFS support would continue with a plugin, just as it…

  • Single Board Computer - a Raspberry Pi or an Odriod, something like that. I just noticed from your first post - this wouldn't apply if you "installed" a card. Disregard.

  • Quote from p.gazibara: “I am going to try to reinstall the updated version of OMV and see where that gets me, though it will probably be painful to go through and set everything up gain. ” (If you rebuild:) This time around, when all is configured the way you want it, clone your SD-Card and you'll never have to do a full rebuild again. (Or at least until you want to.) Considering the time investment involved in rebuilding and reconfiguring, the cost of a 2nd SD-card is cheap insurance. Even if a…

    As I understand the current status of the BTRFS proposal, it's been changed to be part of OMV6. (See the labels and the project "to do".) That doesn't mean that the change to SALT, in OMV5, may not require a full install from scratch. At this point, I don't know.

  • Is this an SBC?

  • The problem with Dockers running from a UnionFS drive is that both use versions of overlayFS which may result in very long and complex file paths. For the same reasons, I won't store UrBackup client backups on a UnionFS drive or even on a ZFS array (ZFS' snapshots may create a similar problem). These issues are easy to head off with a dedicated drive. ___________________________________________________________ The benefits of SNAPRAID+UnionsFS (when using the default storage policy) are; Users c…
