      Not sure what that means and not that I like virtualbox but virtualbox can run some very large VMs. I think you might be better to do what I do - run proxmox on the physical system and OMV as a VM. proxmox is much better than virtualbox or cockpit.

      Any pros for using promox instead of unraid?
      Proxmox isn't a NAS. It is a hypervisor like VMware ESXi. I've never used unraid but I'm pretty sure proxmox exposes much more of kvm. I have used it for production systems for years. If you need NAS functionality as well, then run OMV (or probably even unraid) as a VM.

      Mine is as well but I still run OMV as a VM on proxmox.

      what is the real perfomance degradation OMV as VM vs OMV native install? - percents?
      i'm lookng for manual to install an ideal pair: proxmox + OMV in a one native installation, found only whis one habr.com/ru/post/328048/ but it's a little bit obsolete
      where is some of dependencies are breaks when i trying to install them together, so updates will be only by manual

      Not sure what the exact figures are but not enough to notice. If you only have gigabit ethernet, you will never noticed. Even if you have 10gbe ethernet, I doubt you would notice.

      Not even going to look at the link since you shouldn't do it. Proxmox will uninstall watchdog and OMV requires it. Without hacking code, it will not work. Both systems maintain config files and will have issues as well.

    • Advantages of running OMV on proxmox as a vm.
      Both use very little resources.
      Snapshots and backups.
      Native ZFS if you want that. Maintained by proxmox. Industrial strength support if you want it. (not free)
      Both have good free support. Both are "free".
      Proxmox is solid platform with many more features. You can make it as complex as you need.
      Proxmox does not do "docker" but has lxc containers. I suppose you could run a vm of the os of you choice to do docker.
      ...

      Just install proxmox and then create a vm and boot the OMV iso. Done. You can fine tune as needed later.

    • This is how I would start out and adjust up or down based on your hardware and use. What hardware and needs do you have?
      Processor: 1 socket 2 cores, type host
      OS disk: 16GB virtio
      Storage Disks: virtio as needed
      Memory: 4 or 8GB
      Network: virtio and set multi que to match cpu cores. vmbr0

      Once it is up and running apt-get install qemu-guest-agent. Install what else you may need.

      Good luck.

    • Thank you for ideas!
      it's possible to enable SMART and HDD sleep of native disks from OMV VM?
      HDDs conneted to VM as VirtIO, HDDs inside VM OMV reports what it's "Unable to detect device type" and unfrequently used HDD doesn't sleeps...

      Source Code

      1. smartctl -a /dev/vdb
      2. /dev/vdb: Unable to detect device type
      3. Please specify device type with the -d option.

      just curious how you present the disks to OMV, from proxmox or passthrough?
      I have done both but most are virtual disks because I have a proxmox cluster and you can't migrate a VM to different host if you are using passthrough.

      No. I have an Ubuntu 18 server VM just for dockers.

      I spun up proxmox on a spare box and curious how you present the volumes to docker i.e., plex, did you just add a volume via NFS (source OMV running as a VM in proxmox) in portainer and add the NFS volume to each container as needed, or is there another prefered method?

      Thanks

      I don't use plex but my docker volumes are just paths on the VM. The VM itself is stored on NFS though.
