  • Thank you, will read the thread. Actually I don't think UnionFS is that important. Mostly convenience... Perfectly happy with multiple shares as long as I can keep my data safe - be it the important files or just movies. And then safety would be taken care of by SnapRaid. Also, OMV has CrashPlan in docker, which I have been using for years now. And one of some other reasons to move away from XigmaNAS. The other being emby, cos Plex is a constant bother. Docker in itself is a huge plus comparing …

  • Quote from crashtest: “The number (and size) of disks is driven by the amount of data to be stored. As a matter of personal preference, I like to start with a storage fill rate between 25 to 50%. This allows room for growth. At 75%, I'm looking to add more storage. When considering the number of disks, setting 1 parity disk means you can recover 1 drive. This may be enough for your needs. If you're running older drives, stay on top of them with automated SMART tests. But when the number of disks…

  • Hello OMV folks, I am testing OMV on my old N40L HP Microserver, and plan to move from XigmaNAS after using that for over 8 years (!) I was hoping to find a calculator to put all the numbers into it that would spit out the best way to set the drives up with SnapRaid and UnionFS/mergerfs. I am moving from 3 datadisks: - 2x2 Tb WD Red EFRX in ZFS Mirror (1.5 Tb used) - 1x3 Tb WD Red EFRX UFS (no redundancy) (2.6 used) Old disks lying around, just burn testing them with this script to see if they a…

    okie doc, duly noted... might stick to the pendrive solution and just image that. as far as I read on around here about it, 16 gig quality pendrive seems plenty for everything.

This is the drive that my script images. You just need to properly determine the device name to use as the source device for t…

    Many thanks, I am testing OMV and extremely excited to see: - Emby in a docker - Cockpit running - Pi-Hole in a docker - snapraid and mergerFS Couple of ToDo's: - gderf has a USB saving script.. actually about to use the internal USB port with a USB-connected HDD, have a few of those lying around.. this frees up some space. Although imaging this would be a bit of a pain - burntest some old disks just for the heck of it - based on this article blog.linuxserver.io/2018/10/29/new-hard-drive-rituals…

    ok, I created four ~256 megs drives for testing in VirtualBox... but the unionFS reserves 4 gig space haha... nice find after digging a little bit... I think this should be the culprit... RTFM and also read the options on the screen I guess..

    Hello guys, Struggling with a VirtualBox OMV just testing things out. I have a 4 disk snapraid config with the 3 data disks being unionFS'd and shared via samba. I had troubles figuring the unix permission on the actual path in the code below, but for now at least renaming a file works. However, adding files is giving me disk full error in OS X... that's funky, the disks do have free space. It must be something obvious I am overlooking, but just cannot figure it out. Any help would be appreciate…

    oh, ok, so UnionFS is really a userspace convenience to see multiple disks mounted in one big 'folder' that can then be shared in just a single provider. e.g. - DiskA has all the music - DiskB has all the movies Share01 is a unionFS of of the two disks shared via Samba and so the client can see a both the music and the movies in one single share.. Now, with SnapRaid I would have a third drive... DiskC for parity? Assuming DiskA and DiskB changes quite rarely... say I am adding only 1-2 albums an…

    well that would be no reason to leave XigmaNAS I am always interested in other solutions and wish to deepdive and understand OMV as well

    Dear Gurus, I have searched google quite a bit but still couldn't find any conceptual overview of how unionFS works with SnapRaid. Coming from NAS4Free / XigmaNAS and ZFS backgorund I think I miss the essence of how snapraid works. I was wondering if there was a good source of the basics you could point me to. I simply cannot grasp how you would unionFS something with individual filesystems on individual disks and THEN 'raid' them together... Many thanks in advance.
