Multiple computers, 1 NAS file system

    • OMV 2.x

    • Wow, sorry for the looong delay. I'm thinking of adding another computer box running OMV, so there would be 2 boxes with HDD's(movies). ie 2 16TB computers running OMV. Is there a way to combine both boxes FS into 1. So another computer(player) would "see" 1 FS of movies.

      You don't need to combine the 2 OMVs.
      Using Kodi (libreelec) as the OS on your dedicated player hardware, you add the 2 OMV boxes as seperate sources.
      Kodi will then 'scrape' your sources and create a library of content.
      Content organisation, correct naming of files and folders is paramount to getting a highly accurate library.
      Add an Xbox One tv tuner and you've got tv on that box aswell.

      If you're starting from scratch, it's a long road with a lot of hard lessons, but massive benefits.
      Back up your data with at the very least a 1:1 offline.

      Fan of OMV, but not a fan of over-complication.
