Openmediavault 3.x - Important Information!

  • Hello guys,


    some of you may already know that Openmediavault 3.x is in its early testing phase.


    BUT be aware - it is still very early beta.


    Note, for those of you who already run 3.0, starting with 3.0.14 and above the core code was reworked big time. Expect things to be broken.


    Users Thread about downgrading after updating to 3.0.15 (Don't expect Moderator Support on this issue; Don't ask for when Plugin XY will be updated): [HOWTO] Downgrade to version 3.0.13 after accidentally upgrading to newer version (breaking things)


    So if you don´t know how to build your own packages via sourceforge and install SVN versions,
    please stay away from it till an official announcement from @votdev will be posted.


    Any posts regarding OMV 3.x that point to an error will be closed without warning.


    If you install OMV 3.x though, you are on your own! You won´t get any support until it is declared as stable!
    Do not use omv-release-upgrade to upgrade your OMV 2.x to 3.x. It may damage your installation completely at the moment!


    If you still want to try it and absolutely know what you are doing, feel free to report any bugs to http://bugtracker.openmediavault.org/ or https://github.com/OpenMediaVault-Plugin-Developers if its for a third party plugin.



    Updated 2016/04/06: Added note about 3.0.14 and above; added link to github for third party plugins
    Updated 2016/04/24: Added note to downgrade Thread.

  • so, How are we supposed to upgrade from 2.2.5 to 3.0.28 without omv-release-upgrade?

    Intel G4400 - Asrock H170M Pro4S - 8GB ram - Be Quiet Pure Power 11 400 CM - Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 - 6TB Seagate Ironwolf - RAIDZ1 3x10TB WD - OMV 5 - Proxmox Kernel

  • The part of the sentence that says "at the moment" is the clue that you don't have to worry about that. Although it isn't hard to upgrade without the command.

    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • ok thanks! So the command is now working?
    P.s. sorry for double post, wasn't sure which topic was the best :(

  • It works the same as it did before. OMV 3.x is just more ready now. We didn't want people upgrading to OMV 3.x back in the early beta stages.

  • ah ok! I thought that there was some bug or something when I read that sentence :)

  • OMV 3.x core is good for me. Not all of the plugins you use (mainly omv-extras plugins) may be stable/ready.

  • I'm curious wheter I can update from 2.x to 3.x and remain using my current installed plugins. Is this as simple as check the plugins on the Github page to see if they are compatible with 3.x?


    For instance TransmissionBT seems to work on 3.x, correct?

  • Over a year ago is recent? :)


    Volker has mentioned the database needs to be changed in order to create a proper backup/restore.

  • Since for omv you're now doing only bugfixing. Do you already have some plan about the new features of omv4 or 5?

  • sorry :( i just read the changelog and I thought it was nearly only bugfix, not big changes :(

    A friendly changelog is here


    Abandoned plugins


    To add from there exfat filesystem support was added and also internally some scripts are being rewritten from bash to python.

  • I think OMV core is stable but some of the omv-extras plugins are either not ported or not stable yet.


    I follow github.
