    Your best option is to install OMV5 and follow this guide this would also work if you can locate a Raspbian Stretch Lite, but the current option on Raspbian site is Buster.

  • Quote from ryecoaaron: “all RPi users should be using that over the OMV 4.x image. ” I would agree as I have tested OMV5 using your script on a 3B+ and it worked flawlessly

    Quote from DesertPilot: “I have tried that and it would give me the error of invalid argument with one or both plugged in. ” Then my only suggestion is have a look here your invalid arguments are simply because you haven't specified anything to mdadm hence my suggestion, once the array is assembled you would run omv-mkconf mdadm. The only other option is to run mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=mirror --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda /dev/sdb but this should not be necessary as according to blk…

  • Quote from advapi: “Ah ok, I tried it in the past, but it doesn't allowed me to use the hardware acceleration ” Don't you have to specify that within the plugin i.e. in the Command option as it's a --device option pointing to a driver. EDIT: A quick search reveals that you need to run lshw -c video to see if any drivers are installed for hardware acceleration.

  • Quote from advapi: “how do I perform a totally clean installation??? ” Don't use the plugin it's deprecated as most Plex users on the forum now run docker.

  • Quote from advapi: “When I click in on it I got the image you see attached and the detail is ” OMV-Extras from the update drop down menu select apt clean this will usually remove it.

  • Quote from Mumbedeus: “Does anyone know if there are known bugs with the plugin? ” No, I have been using it successfully since dropping my raid 5. Quote from Mumbedeus: “The SD cards are connected via two different USB-ports on my Rock64. ” I am wondering if this is the problem, you say you are using SD cards via USB, are these SD cards in USB card readers? There is a user connecting 5 x 2.5 drives via a USB charging hub connected to a Rasp Pi using MergerFS + SnapRaid successfully.

    Quote from DesertPilot: “I have a Linux laptop and I can’t get it to mount to it ether. ” Is that just using one drive? Much to my better judgement as the drives already have a raid signature on them try; mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sd[ab]

    Quote from Glider_bum: “It is still running! ” The purpose of your rant is what? Did you actually read the thread, obviously if a Raid option fits your purpose that's fine and the fact that you backup better still. The thread was about using a Raid option on a Raspberry Pi, you would recommend that would you well, here's someone else's thoughts about Raid for home use.

  • 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?
