Thecus NAS running OMV 3.0 -- Fault during field system build

    • OMV 3.x
    • Photos helped. The 4.7 kernel on 32 bit systems has moved from 586 to 686. Fix in the latest omv-extras. Just update omv-extras and try the install backports button again.

      Please read this before posting a question and this and this for docker questions.
      Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!
    • Logfile for the back ports update, it does this every time i update. Is this another indication that the file is not installing anywhere?

    • ok, might have been a bit premature but i tried something else. OMV extras install through CLI. Updated apparently.

      After this i got a bad gateway fault


      Tried again and it seems the kernel did load despite the warning.

    • Did you reboot? Looks like it installed. The bad gateway error probably happened due to your system being under high load while installed kernel.

    • Yep, rebooted. But file system still doesn't work so i've been reading up on Debian and decided to try a few things.Yesterday evening there was one error ( never occurred again) during the file system build and subsequent failure that mentioned a disk GPT issues and using the backup instead.

      So i used fdisk ( or another command, not sure anymore) to check it out and it comes back clean, no faults reported at all. I reformat the drive anyway, works fine after which i try to create the file system again but from the console and still locks up after a while.
      After some more reading i come across posts that suggest using badblocks to check the disk. I have it running now ( on writing not just checking) and i understand it can take a while.
      I didn't see any progress on screen so looked for a solution to that and found iotop, shows badblocks is running with major cpu load so i'll just wait and see what happens when it is done.

      Seems like a work in progress but i'm still having fun and learn a lot along the way.

      FYI system detail

      Thecus N5200pro
      Changed the DOM to 6gb
      Ram is now 1gb, can't go more than that it seems.
      CPU is now SL7SM 2 GHz 760 1 533 MHz 90 nm C0 2 MB but seems to register as 1.5 only
      3 pcs 3Tb HGST Deskstar NAS drives, 2pcs in RAID 1 and 3rd drive is solitary

      After all these changes the NAS has been working on the Thecus FW for some time without problems but i also understand that is no guarantee against hardware related issues popping up now.
    • Wonder if you could help me troubleshoot this , used CLI to partition de disk (again) and then proceeded to create the filesystem ( again) . For the first time i reached table 17075of 22357, thought i had it made until it the process stopped.
      But since i have no clue what the error message means i hoped you could shed some light on it.
