Is there a way to access files on my OMV via the Hostname?
My OMV identifies as "vault" to the Network, it also gets shown as "vault" in the Network tab in Windows-Explorer. But when I click on it, it says that the Networkpath wasnt found. I also tried typing in \\vault\public in the Windows-Explorer but it still cant access it. Everything works normal when I use the IP-Adress \\x.x.x.x\public.
How can I make my OMV accessible by its Hostname?
add it on the host file.
use a DHCP that can resolve the name ( I use Pi.hole), etc...
Where is the host file?
On windows its in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc - you will need to run notepad as administrator and then browse to that folder.
Once there you might not see the file so type hosts in the open context box at the bottom when you "open" while in notepad.
