Announcement Solutions to common problems

    • Solutions to common problems

      Here is a list of problems with potential solutions (these videos may help as well):

      Problem #1: Web interface has missing fields and/or items showing that have been uninstalled.
      Solution #1: Clear your browser cache.

      Problem #2: I mounted the drive using the command line or GUI tool and I can't pick that drive in the shared folder device dropdown.
      Solution #2: Never mount a drive with anything other than the OMV web interface. This creates the necessary database entries to populate the device dropdown.

      Problem #3: I only see a few items in the web interface like the user section of Access Rights Management.
      Solution #3: You did not login as the admin user. This is the only user that can access everything. Nothing can give other users admin access.

      Problem #4: I get an error every time I post in the forum especially if it is a long post and/or has links to external pages.
      Solution #4: The error is deceiving. Please don't keep trying to post. The spam filter has flagged your post and it will need to be approved. Please be patient.

      Problem #5: Samba is slow.
      Solution #5: Read these threads - Tunning Samba for more speed and Tuning Samba for more speed 2. These threads should not be necessary when using the pre-built arm images available on sourceforge since they already have optimized settings.

      Problem #6: You see an error where a domain name/host could not be resolved
      Solution #6: You probably need to set your DNS server in System -> Network -> Interfaces

      Problem #7: It says "No Network Interfaces" when looking at the console.
      Solution #7: Most of the time, this is caused by the system taking too long to get a DHCP IP address before the message is written. The adapter's address can be checked by logging in with any user (root is a good choice) and typing ip addr

      Problem #8: You changed a config file from the command line and something changed it back.
      Solution #8: By design, OMV rewrites config files when changes are made. You should only make changes from the web interface unless you know that OMV is not managing the file (usually a comment in the config file will tell you this).
