Anybody who would like to enlighten me as to the use of "installing the proxmox kernel" in the OMV3 WebUI?
I also dont see any purpose of virtualising OMV except for development purpose. Where is the sense of virtualising the NAS that already offers virtualization?
For sure there is no performance gain by having two layers of virtualization above each other. And all thos hasszles handing through hdds to the VM. I do remember my odysee with my HP ProLiant Gen8 and P410 raid controler, finding after many hours of research, that HP uses some addressrange required for pass through for theyre intenal server iLO communication...
Well I do see some gains in getting independend of hardware, yes, but then, having an ISO backup from the OS disc, setting up OMV is almost as fast and easy as moving a VM from one server to an other server, setting up the passthrough and transfering all the data to the new machine.... vs plugin in the old data drives into a new server, plug in a new OS drive and setup OMV, pulling all the settings out of the OS-disc-backup. So I just dont see the benefit of virtualization of the OMV machine.
But you guys for sure could explain to me the errors of my ways...
