Plugin Auto shutdown

    • OMV 2.x
    • Plugin Auto shutdown

      Hello guys, I hope to write in the right place!

      First question
      I assembled a nas home that seems to work perfectly, I installed OMV me looks fantastic! But I do not understand the operation of the plugin autoshutdown. If only one PC on my network is online (without access the nas), the nas should not be suspended. I do not understand. This means that if I turn on a computer just to check email or do a search or edit documents, or better yet turn on the smart TV, the nas will remain on. I wish it goes to suspend only if no one asks access to shared folders for a certain amount of time. It’s possible something like that, or the plugin is thought to another?


      Second question
      I imagine that to awaken the nas need a magic packet. Have any of you ever found a way to wake up only when asked access to shared folders?

      Thanks for attention. Happy to be a part of this family.
    • 1 - The plugin shuts the server down when you aren't using it. I don't think you delay that shutdown.
      2 - There is no way to turn on a NAS just by accessing a shared folder (that I know).

    • J understand...but well...what kind of operation you use to wake up automatically your nas from sleep with openmediavault when you want to use it? From pc is easy to send a magic packet to do it, but from a smart tv for example, is it possible?

      J don't believe that there isn't a solution for theese cases...unfortunately not a programmer ... but it seems strange that no one has ever solved a need so basic! Maybe it will not be so trivial !!

      Thanks for your attention.
    • This isn't really an OMV issue. The client (ie smarttv) would need to send the magic packet. No way for us to change.

      In my opinion, a server should be running all the time. Problem solved. If that is too much energy, use a smaller server. An RPi2 or Odroid-XU4 use just a few watts and you can spin down the drives.
