    Hi,
    I was wondering if you're still using hd-idle? And if so or not, any reason for that?
    Was reading this thread:
    forum.openmediavault.org/index…Advanced-Power-Managment/

    • sm0ke -

      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!

    • macom -

      I use hd-idle for my internal drives; with hdparm the load cycle count increased a lot

    • sm0ke -

      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)?

    • macom -

      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.

    Don't use /sharedfolders/... in Docker etc.

    Hi just want to know how to post an issue I have with SMB Sharing not displaying folders in the root shared folder

    • macom -

      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

    • Loza_openmediavault -

      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.

    • macom -

      I have not tried, but it might be possible to just add "/" (without the quotes) as path in the "add shared folders" window.

    • Loza_openmediavault -

      "/" 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 altonddavisjr@yahoo.com if you want to send message that way also.

    sudo du -BM -d1 -x | sort -n

    from flmaxey:
    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.

    I think you're doing good things on the forum. Thanks.

    • macom -

      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....
      Thanks You!!!
