    • SnapRaid 8 - best way to automate

      Hi All,

      After a rebuild of OMV on 2.1 I have setup Snapraid 8.1 again and want to know the best way to keep the disks updated automatically.
      I used to run nightly the omv-snapraid-diff script but this was quite old and wonder if I still should be using that to automate. I should also mention I had issues with what I supect was AUFS in the past so have taken this out of this particular build, but the issue could have been related to the omv-snapraid-diff script. That particular issue was permissions across files and one drive not getting updated with permissions and deletions causing "invalid device" when accessing files.

      Is this omv-snapraid-diff script still required or is there some sort of automation built into OMV that I can run through cron?

      It wasn't changed a long time, but it still works. What did not work for you? Newer is not better

      You can do a sync also with cron, but with the script you can choose, not to sync if more than X files are changed or setup scrubbing
