    • Lost IP address after "omv-firstaid" configuration

      Hi all,
      Thanks for all the postings, I have learned a lot regarding OMV from this forum.
      Recently, I have difficulty in installation of Portainer in omv 5.x. One solution is that re-configuration of network after entering "omv-firstaid".

      Hi. I have OMV Extras v5.1.1, wich shows Docker as installed. When i try do install Portainer (by pressing the "Install Portainer" button), nothing happens. I only see the following dialog window:

      "option :: portainer
      state :: install
      No portainer containers or images to remove.
      Done."
      After installation of docker the network interface is broken and DNS does not work.
      Use omv-firstaid to reconfigure the network interface. After that installation of Portainer worked for me.

      However, after I tried to follow steps in ssh, the lines in terminal frozen at "in configuration, please", something like that, for a long time.
      Then I force to close the terminal, and found out that I cannot re-connect to server using original IP address.
      After I type "IP addr", the new address doesn't work either.

      Please help!
    • omv-firstaid should generally be ran from console for this reason (especially when there is a possibility the IP may change)...

      If you can't log in with the old IP... I would log into your router/switch and check what IP's it has assigned. You should be able to figure it out.

      If that is not possible, download Angry IP scanner onto a device that is on your network, and run it. It should find all IP's currently available on your network.

      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

      Under Windows I prefer to use Advanced Port Scanner, but to each his (or her) own.

      Thanks, actually, this time I use the console and enter the omv-firstaid again, and "configure the network interface " again to reset the setting, and obtained new IP address.
