I was wondering if you're still using hd-idle? And if so or not, any reason for that?
Was reading this thread:
Sorry, read the info @ sourceforge and it's related to external HDD's. I use internal for my new build... But any advice in which Advanced Power Management setting to choose is welcome though!
I use hd-idle for my internal drives; with hdparm the load cycle count increased a lot
Thanks, that's interesting... It does work for internal a swell than. And You've been using that for quit some time, right? (was an old thread, I mentioned)
Was just setting up APM and see what it does with power consumption (don't know how reliable this device really is though).
Going to disable APM and setup hd-idle, Thanks!
One thing I was thinking about, how does APM or hd-idle work with docker running, but no image active (stopped)?
Maybe hdparm is working fine for your. Check first before installing hd-idle.
If no docker is running, there should be no access from the docker on the drive. So the drive should go to standby unless another service is accessing the drive.
Can't get hd-idle to work properly. As you mention with hdparm the load cycle count increases, so I prefer to use hd-idle. I followed the guide mentioned in topic above. I use v. 1.05 and don't use autoshutdown (yet). Problem is only my 2 WD Green (2x2TB) spin down, not my Samsung drives (2x1,5TB and 1x750GB at the moment). I tried: HD_IDLE_OPTS="-i 0 -a /dev/disk/by-uuid/...", "by-label" and HD_IDLE_OPTS="-i 180" (all drives).
Don't use /sharedfolders/... in Docker etc.

Good Posts - Good info.
Hi just want to know how to post an issue I have with SMB Sharing not displaying folders in the root shared folder
Seems you have just registered at the forum. Might need some time befor you are able to open a new thread.
Regarding your issue: are you referring with "root" to the drive where the operation system is installed? It is not possible to access the operation system folder by SMB or any other share
Hi Thanks for answering, I don't have an operating system its just a drive formatted with many folders in it
Eg if you were to plug drive into a USB caddy it will have many folders 1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010, Documentaries.
I have not tried, but it might be possible to just add "/" (without the quotes) as path in the "add shared folders" window.
"/" worked thanks
Thx Macom!!!! Got it installed and on network. Can see it by Router. Cannot see it by other computers. I went by a video, step by step. Computers can see each other. THen I went back to login as ADMIN. I created so many users/passwords. I FORGOT ADMIN PASSWORD! Is there a hidden over ride to get back in to OMV as ADMIN? OR IS THIS A WIPE/ REINSTALL OMV AND REDO (BUT FIND OUT WHY OTHER COMPUTERS CANNOT SEE ME ON NETWORK.)
Please respond. I am at your mercy. good thing is disability keeps me up at night. so I play with it a long time. my email is email@example.com if you want to send message that way also.

Looking for SMART Stat's? DO apt-get install curl on the command line first.
Then on the CLI type:
for disk in /dev/sd? ; do smartctl -x $disk ; done | curl -F 'sprunge=<-' sprunge.us
(replace "?" with the letter for your disk)
The above line returns a URL. Copy and past the URL into the address bar on a Web browser.
Installation of OMV on any debian version (from tkaiser)
I think you're doing good things on the forum. Thanks.
Thanks flmaxey. For sure I would make the same statement about your contributions.
When I started to look into NAS software (freenas, nas4free, OMV) I found a lot of comments regarding OMV having a very supportive and responsive community. Starting to read this forum I understood these comments. So now I am trying to help other users as good as I can. As you might have noticed I am by no means a linux expert. I try to answer only to those questions where I feel confident, but I have to admit, that my judgement sometimes is wrong. So, still a lot of learning ahead....
