    • SMB/CIFS share name

      My NAS is appropriately named "NAS", and when I have the SMB/CIFS enabled, the share name that I see on my Mac is "NAS - SMB/CIFS". For some reason this bugs me, and I would like it to just be "NAS". Second, one of the shares is a time machine backup location. I used to be able to use share quotas, but apparently that went away/was moved, and likewise I can't figure it out (I did come across a tutorial, but I'm running ZFS and could not enable quotas under File System). I didn't see it was possible to enable user quotas either.

      1. For 4.x you were able to rename the SMB service name fairly easy with the desired effect. Is there an equivalent of doing that under 5.x?
      2. Any way of enabling quotas on ZFS.

      Thanks in advance.
    • You can’t rename a SMB share in OMV5 anymore. Shared folder names are unique, so there is no need to modify it for SMB. Simply rename the shared folder itself or keep the behavior in mind when creating and configuring OMV.

      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.

    • I’m not really trying to rename the shared folder, just rename the main SMB service name, it so when I go browse the network the main link is “NAS” vs “NAS - SMB/CIFS”.

      I would be ok if it was “NAS - Media”, “NAS - Files”. But it literally says “NAS - SMB/CIFS”.

    • As far as the quota, I had everything stored on the main pool. I just had to create some Filesystems/Volumes and rework the mount points/mv the files to the new locations. Frankly it ended up being cleaner, but I literally had to change everything, including Portainer paths.

      Then each filesystem/volume can be individually configured for quotas.

      Do you have Docker containers on the ZFS file system? As I remember there where issues with that and therefore it is recommended to store it on a drive with a different file system. ZFS settings

    • You can rename the Zeroconf/mDNS name in the network configuration tabs.

      I didn't see this option in OMV 5.3.2-1 unfortunately.

      I used to change the ZeroConf Name in OMV4, but struggled to find the setting in the Web GUI in OMV5.

      I did it manually by changing a line in /etc/avahi/services/smb.services and then reboot

      Hope that helps
    • Ah right, OMV5 has removed it. You need to modify it via environment variables.

      github.com/openmediavault/open…diavault/debian/changelog

      github.com/openmediavault/open…oy/avahi/services/smb.sls

      I think there is a section in docs.openmediavault.org that describes how to do that.
