  • Quote from devnet: “Thanks for posting this. I'm about to undergo the same migration. I'm currently using mdadm raid1 and I have around 3-4 extra hard drives sitting around without use. A new motherboard is on the way with 6 SATA connections so I should have the ability to add a bunch of space into a pool. I figured I'd have to blank things out so had already planned it...sounds like you found the same. Anyway, appreciate the info! ” I followed the advice suggested by other posts on the forum, a…

I have not seen your problem before. (edit- I have seen this a lot.) ” THIS! Someone please give this man a cookie! I was going nuts trying to reinstall Plex. I tried uninstalling and purging, but I never thought of deleting the old Plex user. I had to reinstall Plex due to a hard drive migration, but t…

  • Replying to myself, I completed the migration. My plan was for the drives in the pool to fill up evenly. This was not possible with the configuration I had before. If I simply kept the first drive (Data1) with the my data on it, and add it with a new drive (Data2) to a pool, it was not possible to get UnionFS to put newly created files in Data2, despite having selected the "most free space" policy. In the end, I move all my files out to a back up drive, wiped both Data1 and Data2 and created the…

  • Hello forum! My current OMV server currently has only one 1 TB HDD for my data (Data1), which I regularly back up to an external USB HDD. OMV runs on a separate SDD. Since the HDD is getting slowly full, I wanted to move to a HDD pool + SnapRaid to make it easy to expand the storage in the future. However, I have a few doubts regarding the best way to create the pool, and how to migrate my current system to minimize the work required. Creating the pool My current HDD is at roughly 70% of its cap…

  • What are the differences between using OMV's native OpenVPN plugin vs a docker container? I've been using the plugin for some time now without issues, but I was wondering if the docker version makes it easier to configure other aspects of OpenVPN (if any).

    Quote from subzero79: “Yes. Just place the client config file at /etc/openvpn folder. ” My apologies for bringing back this thread from the dead, but I am facing a similar scenario but I am not sure that I follow your idea. First, when you refer to "configuration file" do you mean the certificate file that OpenVPN generates for the clients to connect? My situation is like this: I would like to connect two OMV servers in different locations. My main server (OMV1) is at my home, the second server …

    Quote from doman18: “One more thing ... Quote from Eryan: “Finally, the mini PCIe slot seems to recognize Wlan cards only, meaning that some bios-tweaking is also required. ” How do you know that? Did you try to put anything else from WLAN card? Because the fact that mobo did recognise CrystalHD without any hack is very promising.

And is it possible to overcome chipset limits with some bios hack anyway? Another question is - is it worth to buy 2x2GB sticks anyway? If a…

    I can perhaps help with some of the questions: 1. @ngevan2k managed to get 8 Gb of RAM because he modified the Bios. AFAIK the Atom 230/330 can use more than 4 Gb of RAM, but in the FX 160 that amount is limited to 4. There are no special versions nor special chips built in the FX 160. 2. I've heard mixed opinions regarding the Crytal HD. Some people got it to work without fuzzle. Nonetheless, having the card won't help you with Plex. Plex relies purely on CPU for transcoding. You can take advan…

  • Quote from iNTiGOD: “I struggled to get pihole working with docker and ended up getting a rpi zero w. Would love to see a step by step guide though.” I am having also issues with Docker and was also considering just using a Raspi. Wanted to test it first with a DietPi VM or something along the lines, but for simplicity's sake chances are that I'll go the Raspi way. Sent from my Robin using Tapatalk

  • Running Pi-hole docker, anyone?

    Somewhat bumping this post. I would also like to install Pi-Hole within a Docker, but I am having issues to to configure it and make it work. Any help with the configuration is highly appreciated.

  • I am not familiar with docker to be honest. Will look onto that. Thanks! EDIT: After looking at Docker, it certainly is a far better approach to use PiHole since I do not need to make a full OS install (the case for the VM option). Now, if I install PiHole in Docker, will the docker have its own IP Address different from OMW? The reason being that I have to point the router DNS server to the IP of PiHole in order for it to work.

  • Hello Forum! I've been playing for a while with the idea of setting a PiHole server at home. The most straightforward way to do it would be to set up a Rasperry Pi and finito! However, being the curious non-straightforward guy that I am, I thought about setting PiHole in my server as a VM. As background information, the motherboard on my OMV server is an Intel DQ77KB which has 2 (Intel) NICs. My original idea was to let OMV work exclusively with one NIC and set the second one exclusively for PiH…

  • Fair enough. I already have something similar for the VPN. I'll give it a try and report back. Sent from my Robin using Tapatalk

  • I completely forgot about WebDAV! That would certainly do the trick. I assume that an open port in my router is necessary. Sent from my Robin using Tapatalk

  • Hello forum! I must admit that regarding networking I know as much as a pig knows of physics, therefore I turn to you with a simple question. As a little background, I've been using OpenVPN to access my home network and tunnel my smartphone network traffic thru my house when not at home. I've successfully used it during my vacations and it worked perfectly to both protect my network traffic and to gain access to all my stuff on my server from wherever I am. After the vacations I returned with a …

    Hi @ngevan2k, did you managed to have a stable version of your FX160 hacked Bios? I would really like to use it in my FX160 (probably I am not the only one), mainly to have a little bit more of ram, take advantage of the 64 bit OS and probably add an Intel 7260. Would you be so kind to provide us with your modded Bios? I am willing to buy you a couple of beers in exchange!

    I would bet that the thumb drive is the issue. I ran my OMV for quite some time with an Atom 330 without issues. Surely it wasn't a performance beast, bit was more than enough and required less than 15 W Sent from my Robin using Tapatalk

    Perhaps the low performance and instability is a side effect of installing in an old thumb drive. Sent from my Robin using Tapatalk
