OMV 2 Kernel 4.x Image

  • i did for a few times and even reinstalled it:


  • What does /var/log/vbox-install.log say? What does dmesg say?

  • Try:


    service vboxdrv stop
    service vboxweb-service stop
    service vboxdrv setup

  • Code
    root@BackupServer:~# service vboxdrv stop
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules ...done.
    root@BackupServer:~# service vboxweb-service stop
    root@BackupServer:~# service vboxdrv setup
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules ...done.
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules ...failed!
    (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
  • I don't use virtualbox anymore. Not sure what is wrong. Try uninstalling the plugin and reinstalling.

  • Maybe you should switch to Proxmox or ESXi then. I use Proxmox myself with my main OMV server as a VM.

  • The performance is much better than virtualbox. It is a light weight hypervisor instead of full virtualization.


    Yes, you can passthrough the drive to the VM and then use mergerfs inside the VM.

  • Yep because the drives are passed through, they aren't any different (use normal filesystem) than using native OMV.

  • Yes. It is very low. OMV is always doing something no matter how it is installed. So, it won't be zero. According to the proxmox web interface, one of my OMV VMs is using 0.1% of one cpu while idling. Trust me. Proxmox is a frontend for KVM (built into the linux kernel) and is much better and more efficient than virtualbox.

  • Proxmox is always a better option that virtualbox.

  • OMV 3.x uses virtualbox 5.x. I wrote a script to upgrade OMV 2.x installs to 5.x but it is somewhat dated now.


    Yes. Make a clone of the system using clonezilla and then restore it to a VM using clonezilla again. I have done it with my systems before. You will just have to fix the networking.
