  • Quote from totopesce: “the router is an asus ac86u so its ac and should be able to do 5ghz. ” According to the specs it does, so the problem is down to the Pi, I found something on the Pi forum that might help as the user that maintained the Pi image is no longer here so I have no idea if the forum solution could be used.

    Quote from DesertPilot: “The RAID is mmcblk0p2 I need to mount that to get the info off it. ” That is OMV's boot partition not your raid. Your two raid drives are /dev/sda and /dev/sdb they are clearly shown under Storage -> Disks to confirm they are your raid drives run blkid then you'll need to create then assemble to get the raid up. Another way to do this is to attach one drive to a Linux machine via USB and get the data off that way as it's a raid 1 the drives are identical. Another option …

  • Quote from totopesce: “How do I force the Rpi to connect to the 5Ghz band and only fall back to 2.4 when theres a problem? ” Technically you can't as this will be router dependant, the router is probably 802.11n and not ac, the Pi has dual band 802.11ac WiFi so to connect and maintain a 5Ghz connection you'll be restricted by the distance and obstacles between the Pi and the router. I assume by your statement above that you were experiencing drop outs on the 5Ghz channel, you could try changing …

    Quote from hauschka: “Most notably is that the drives don't seem to turn on at all, so I really think that there must be a different problem. ” For the drives to be recognised by OMV or any OS they have to be present in the BIOS, if the drives haven't simply died start with cables, power connection, sata ports just plug one in to start and check the BIOS.

    Quote from matefon: “Last question: how can I backup my OMV settings? ” You can't if you mean to backup them and then add them to a new install, the best option is some screenshots and/or written notes.

    Quote from matefon: “So, the simplest way to fix it is to reinstall the system? ” Yes, what you implemented was the right approach I was just trying to ascertain what you installed when you ran the net install, to confirm what you should enable during a net install I'll tag @macom to confirm. But don't install Armbian, probably wouldn't work anyway.

    I thought you said you were a Linux noob, or is that a noob with some understanding I was expecting something typed, anyway this; Quote from matefon: “I installed Debian from a netinst DVD ” That's fine but during the install, if memory serves me correctly you are greeted with a menu to install components, the norm for this is to install SSH server only, although I have seen threads that suggest minimum system utils. This comment prompted me to ask; Quote from matefon: “with Desktop Env. ” that …

    Quote from matefon: “Armbian? I'm a Linux noob ” Ok Armbian I suppose the best way to describe it is that it's a Linux distro for SBC's so you install that then install OMV on top using their software installer. But back to this; Quote from matefon: “I have Debian ARM 64 9.11.0 with Desktop Env. ” Expand on the above, hardware, the software you have installed and how you installed OMV.

    Quote from mac4rfree85: “but when i installed piehole in another container, ” If you follow the guide as @macom has suggested post how you get on, I spent a day on my OMV5 test rig I could not get Pi-Hole to work using a macvlan, I even manged to find a portainer howto on creating a macvlan. I tried this out of curiosity not for use, as my Pi-Hole runs on a Rasp Pi under Diet-Pi.

    I saw your other thread here but didn't reply as I sometimes think 'too many cooks spoil the broth' Line 7, 8 and 9 I have seen before on the forum before, your install is it on Armbian?

  • Quote from Cori: “Look, I appreciate your advice and input. ” Fair enough, but OMV is aimed at home users, yes users do get problems setting this up and it is usually related to hardware or an error on their part and with reasonable information a solution can be found. Quote from Cori: “so I was only using my knowledge as a sysadmin ” So was I but I'm now retired and restrict myself to part time work on an ad hoc basis, but that doesn't make us all knowing, if I wanted to change the way a specif…

  • Quote from Cori: “You didn't manually move your mount point, before doing all that. Give that a shot? ” Why would I do that, the system works as it is, you change something like the mount point you not only have to change OMV's config to ensure that it continues to function correctly but any scripts that have been created/written for OMV's default settings. The fact that mine worked would suggest that that the delete function in shared folders in the GUI is simply deleting the reference to the s…

  • Quote from Cori: “That friends is a serious flaw in the code and someone should be looking at this. ” Out of curiosity having read this thread I have just tested this on my own system, created a share in the GUI, confirmed the share appears in /srv/dev-disk-by-label etc and under /sharedfolders using WinSCP. Using WinSCP from my W10 workstation copied a folder to the new share on OMV, created a simple text file in that share, confirmed it all showed in the mount point /srv/dev etc and /sharedfol…

  • Quote from vatastala: “So, what I cannot find now is how to enable periodic checks of the filesystem, ” What you need to be able to do is an fsck periodically on the Raid itself as it was that that failed as per your image in post 15, hence that's why the system went into emergency mode. What you could try is set up a scheduled job weekly after hours and enter the command fsck /dev/md0 (if your raid is set as md0) save it, select it, then click run, this will at least confirm that it will work, …

    Quote from curious1: “Each one does about 12 clicks and then spins down. ” Dead, probably the actuator, and you'll find all sorts of suggestions from placing the drive in a zip lock and putting it in the freezer for a couple of hours Quote from curious1: “Looks like I'm going to have to find a wizard ” I don't think Harry Potter does house calls

But if I was to use something like that attached to a Pi it would for backup purposes only. You could use MergerFS and SnapRaid, there is only one caveat I have fo…

    Quote from rul3s: “If I did first question ok, how to call omv-mkconf on OMV5? ” There is no mkconf in OMV5, it uses salt, so it would be omv-salt deploy run monit and as per @jollyrogr you have to remove all references, SMB shares etc for this to work.

    Quote from crashtest: “I'm not sure which attributes trigger the red light, but it's not good. ” Red light indicates bad sectors, but don't know the attribute, it would suggest those drives are in pre fail, sooner rather than later.
