AUFS can't create a pool

    • OMV 1.0
    • AUFS can't create a pool

      I had to delete my aufs pool to correct a problem and now I can't recreate the pool.

      When I try to unfold the bind share selector, it stays searching for more than 1 minute, then shows one "communication error" for each share dropdown in the page (they are a big amount, I have to stay clicking for a while)
      The normal it's for some branch to throw another "communication error", then I can't select anything in and I have to cancel all and start again.

      If I manage to fill all, then when I try to save shows something like "string is not an array"

      This thing hangs for a while every time has to access shares or filesystems, in selectors or in their managers. I'm starting to hate this.
      Tomorow I'll try to make a video to send to you.
    • please install omv-extras if you haven't already
      then go to "system Information > Support Info > Dropdown Box: select XML aufs"
      and post it here. Then we'll see whats the causing this hopefully.

      But I must point that this log is showing something because I managed to save the pool. The problem seems to be in the OMV interface. Whenever it has to fetch information from the filesystem, it gets hung for a good while.
      Now that I see the log, I remember that I counted the error messages to be 32, when failed.

      How I got it saved: went to explorer and reloaded the page. Started to make the pool. If it throws an error, I reload the page and start again.
      Reloading the page makes it work for a small while. And that allowed me to create the pool.

      Then I had the same problem on samba shares. So it's not AUFS related. Can you please tell me where this thing has to be reported?
