OMV for RockPro64 (and other RK3399 devices soon)

      My question was whether you configured this 'static IP address' via OMV UI or not. If you did it the OMV way then Debian's ifupdown package controls the NIC but if you leave things as they are when booting first time (or set a static address via nmtui) then Network Manager has control (and with NM this should work -- I have no idea about ifupdown since I hate using anachronistic mechanisms from last century)

      I did set the static IP via OMV UI.

      Then most probably behavior is as expected. While I have no idea why people do set static IP addresses (why remembering those silly numbers, why not accessing your NAS by its name nanopct4.local) to get the desired behavior I would assume letting NM control the interface will result in what you want.

      With OMV5 OMV's networking handling will move from anachronistic ifupdown to systemd -- maybe it's fixed that way too...

      I did setup the static IP to setup port forwarding and to setup automated backups of some devices. On some device I can only define a IP adress in order to access the NAS.
      What do you mean the NM? The Network Router in my case? Do I just need to delete the line in OMV UI and perform the definition of the IP on router side?

      Sorry, Network Manager. That's Armbian's default. To get rid of ifupdown behavior most probably you need to delete the interface in the OMV UI, then check /etc/network/interfaces and delete potential leftovers, reboot (DHCP then) and then either assign a static IP address using nmtui or let your router do the job.

      NM takes care about links that went down and brings them up when available again...

      Thanks, seems to work. Deleted the interface in OMV UI and afterwards /etc/network/interfaces was empty and the T4 got a DHCP address from the router after restart. After configuring address distribution at the router for the T4 the T4 now has it previous known address. Restart of the router is now no longer an issue - network connection gets re-connected afterwards. Thanks again.

      Link Aggregation of both Ethernet lines
      Does NOT increase bandwidth.
      Do you know any possibility to increase network speed with multiple lines to allow paralell access of multiple users to access the NAS with high speed? I like the excellent speed, low price and low power consumption of the nanoPC T4 - all in a very small box. But I lwould like to further increase network speed - to get an even more outstanding cpmbination of speed, low power consumption, low price in a small box. Beside of that OMV meets all my requirements.

      With multiple users Link Aggregation can work to improve overall bandwidth. But each link is still 1 Gbps and the usual algorithms to spread individual connections over the existing LAG members often results in all clients being on the same link if there are only a few clients.

      An approach that works better is 'SMB multichannel' but this obviously will only work if your clients are also capable of SMB multichannel and you're using SMB/CIFS. Forum search has some results.

      For USB3-Ethernet adapters the only real recommendation is those based on RTL8153 chipset or soon either RTL8156 (2.5GbE) or Aquantia’s AQC111U (5GbE). But you should be aware of the usual USB downsides: superuser.com/questions/128450…exist-yet/1366055#1366055
