Roadmap, date, ... for OpenMediaVault 3

  • I haven't try PXE plug in.
    Clonezilla is fast and reliable.
    I been using it for years.

    I have been using Clonezilla for years also. You boot the Clonezilla from PXE. So, same fast speed and reliability. Just no server component. Only storage. And plugins already created for OMV.

  • Is there one place on the forum that is a running thread with updates to it that give the current status of OMV 3, particularly a list of ported plugins, a list of plugins to be ported, and a list of plugins that will not be ported?

    Abandoned plugins


    The only plugin that I know of that needs to be ported that is planned to be ported is the LUKS plugin. So everything that is not abandoned has been ported (some may still be beta though).


    Are you talking about run Clonezilla on the USB as the client?

    No. When you boot over pxe, the client boots over the network from an image on the server. Once it boots, you can write an image from nfs/samba/etc to the client, reboot, and you have a working system. You could also pxe boot a client to create an image from that machine and store it on nfs/samba/etc.



    Here's what I see when I run that command

    openvpn didn't finish installing. Try apt-get -f install otherwise uninstall it and reinstall. Let's encrypt is removed and mysql looks fine.

  • Do you know how PXE works? And yes, I am talking about cloning/imaging too. You put the proper clonezilla files on the PXE server. The client pxe boots, shows you a menu, you pick clonezilla, it boots clonezilla just like a usb stick is plugged into the unit. The clonezilla files are stored on a file server (in my case, it is the same server as the pxe server). I can clone the first box by pxe booting the machine with clonezilla and writing the image to a samba share. Then I pxe boot the second box and choose clonezilla, I restore/image the previously created image to the second box.


    After looking at Clonezilla server, it just creates the pxe server for you. So, it seems to do the same thing that I have been doing without it. My method lets you use current OMV plugins though.

  • Is there a documentation for PXE server setup on OMV?

    openmediavault-pxe first version now available for testing


    Will this work? linuxconfig.org/network-booting-with-linux-pxe

    Probably but I would just use the tftp and pxe plugins.

  • So, no need to install: dhcp3-server, or dnsmasq ?

    Depends on your network. The most important thing with running a pxe server is having the ability to change the location that your dhcp server tells the client what the pxe server's ip address is.


    When I look at the documentation, it seems like PXE plugin contains Clonezilla in there.

    Yep, there is a pre-made package for clonezilla.

  • openvpn didn't finish installing. Try apt-get -f install otherwise uninstall it and reinstall. Let's encrypt is removed and mysql looks fine.

    Trying to get the OpenVPN plugin to work, whether by forcing it to install, or removing and reinstalling it, I always get a message saying that, "Errors were encountered while processing: openmediavault-openvpn." As for Let's Encrypt, it's uninstalled, but I cannot install it because for whatever reason OMV cannot find and install the certbot dependency. The MySQL plugin is installed, and it may look fine, but that does not explain why then I get pop-up error messages from the plugin every few seconds.
