OMV 5.0 + Docker - Suggestion

    • OMV 5.x (beta)

      Bearing in mind how the Docker service is now popular, I think it should be delivered directly from OMV and not in OMV-Extras.
      Nice thought but Volker does not want to maintain that plugin and really shouldn't have to. Why is installing omv-extras so bad?

      How to install Docker on OMV5.0?
      I haven't finished porting docker. So, you can run it from the command line if you want but I don't see much reason to run OMV 5.x yet.

      I am particularly interested in OMV5 because (Debian 10) it will support my intel i5-8600k processor.
      OMV 4.x uses the backports 4.19 kernel by default and this is the exact same kernel that OMV 5/Debian 10 uses.

    • Hello folk,
      I also favor OMV 5 because the release will come soon. I don't want to go to OMV 4 anymore.
      I have bought another better computer as a replacement for the old with OMV 2.x which is no longer supported. On the new one running (still without data disks) experimentally OMV 5. Docker Cockpit and Portainer I can start in the browser and log in. I need cups because later several printers are connected to the server. I have no idea how to get OMV / Docker / Cups connected and configure. Is there an instruction or will there be a manual later?
      aktuell noch OMV 2.x
      Vergleiche noch 4.x & 5.x für meinen neuen Server....

      The idea of using Docker for OMV is that we don't have to write plugins or manuals because they already exist for docker. Sure the paths change but they would anyway.

      I didn't read it but maybe this will help - lemariva.com/blog/2019/02/rasp…inter-server-using-docker

    • I looked at it. That is however for the RasPi. I don't want a separate print server. I want to print via my OMV server to which the printers are connected. I can't transfer this manual to OMV. So far I have been able to add CUPS with OMV-extras at OMV2. With OMV5 that's probably only possible with Docker. Since then my problems begin: how do I load which image and what do I have to configure ... set any variables?

      That is the benefit of Docker, it doesn't matter what system it is on. The article happens to be about an RPi but the docker and portainer parts translate perfectly to OMV.

      You have to try. If one image doesn't work, try another. Because it is running in docker, you won't mess up the host system. Variables would depend on the container. hub.docker.com has lots of images. I don't use (or like) cups because I have network printers. So, I wouldn't be good one to help. Look for any docker cups how to on the internet.

      it is my understanding that it is not a generally good idea to download docker images that it not trusted by the community, as it could packaged with some unwanted software???

      Trusted by what community? If the image has thousands (or more) downloads and plenty of stars, it is probably ok. You can always look at the dockerfile to see any odd behaviors. The image also has limited access to your system (unless you give it a volume containing everything). I would say if you think about the images you try just like web sites you visit, you will be ok.
