    • shared folder on the system disk

      Hi good afternoon, on a day of elections in Spain

      a question:

      how can I add a shared folder on the installation disk OMV, I mean the drive where the system is installed

      I say this because it is an SSD and wanted to use his speed to install folder database Emby and Plex, among other things, to use the space for free

      thank you very much!
    • I have some shares on the system disk, but they were configured by hand as "Extra options" in the SMB/CIFS settings page. They will not appear or be referenced anywhere in the Web GUI, so everything about them must be set up by hand. Probably not the best way to do this, but for me it was a one time thing and I have not needed to touch them since.

      ok also is another option to make the most of the space but what is more need to appear in the WebUI to establish it as a cache of various services. thanks too
    • There is a better way....

      cd /
      mkdir test
      cd /media/uuid/ (whatever uuid you want)
      ln -s /test test

      Then go to shared folders in the Web GUI.
      click add.
      On the volume field select the volume that matches the uuid above.
      Now on the Path field click on the far right click on the folder with the spyglass.
      Select test and the click on OK.
      In the Name line put test as the name.
      Now click on save.

      Now still in the Shared Folders highlight test and click on privileges.
      Add read/write to your main user.

      Now go to Service/ SMB/CIFS / then click on the shares TAB
      Click on add and the in the Shared Folder drop down select test.
      Click on save.

      Now in command line:
      cd /
      chmod 775 test

      Done... You can name the folder whatever you want but in this example I used test.

      Easier... yes. Better... not really. If you fill the drive when using the symlink method, you are locked out of the web interface. You can't see any of the filesystem information in the web interface either.

    • I agree it is a good method but just wanted to point out the gui lockout problem for those who are not good with the command line.

    • Hello.
      How can mount folder in omv 3 ?

    • While I don't think symlinking is the right idea, I would make the shared folder first. Repartitioning is still the better idea.

    • I find the idea of ryecoaaron " Repartitioning is still the better idea." better.

    • If you know how to putty into the box via ssh and use xming, systemrescuecd would work great. Explaining this is less work than you connecting a monitoring though.

    • While I understand that the situation is the same in OMV3 as in 2, I think I have a slightly different setup with this problem.

      I installed on top of jessie-netinstall like volker described in forum.openmediavault.org/index…?postID=133044#post133044.
      Its a simple UEFI install with 500MB /boot partition, 8GB swap.
      The rest is BTRFS with separate subvolumes @ and @home and maybe things like /var/cache in the future (so I could apply quotas not letting it fill up my SSD).

      I would like to have Samba home shares, but I cannot create a shared folder for my subvolume @home.
      As I understand this is still the limitation with missing BTRFS support, describe here:
      forum.openmediavault.org/index…-to-setup-shared-folders/

      I guess this is linked to this feature request, but it hasn't been updated for a year.
      bugtracker.openmediavault.org/view.php?id=1461

      Is there a way to create a shared folder for the @home subvolume?
      Do I have to do the symlink trick proposed by @tekkb?

      Nope.

      No. If you don't enable home directories Access Rights Management -> User -> Settings, when you enable home directories in samba, it will use whatever the home directory in /etc/passwd is for the user. Just change the home directory there and you should be able to use that location for samba home directory only.
