Neccesity to upgrade from 3.0.99 to 4.x.x

    • OMV 3.x
    • Upgrade 3.x -> 4.x
    • Neccesity to upgrade from 3.0.99 to 4.x.x

      Is there any neccesity to upgrade from 3.0.99 to 4.x.x, for instance security reasons?
      My NAS is running fine for what I do with it: sharing files with Windows PC, Mede8er mediaplayer and Mac Tablet, use of miniDLNA and backup to cloudservice with RSync.
      So, for functionality I see no reason to upgrade.

      Services running are:
      Apple Filing
      Downloader (X)
      FTP (X)
      MiniDLNA
      UPS
      SMB/CIFS
      Sensors (X)

      (X) means can do without

      Yes, Debian 8 (the base of OMV3) is EOL and will not get any security updates anymore.
      Absolutely no support through PM!

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

    • OK, Thanks. Have to get a hard drive, big enough to save my data, first.
