  • I do this by the Clonezilla plugin which already exists when you install OMV, but you can do this wherever you can launch Clonezilla Live

  • oh id didnt know that, i used e separate pc and it did work.


    but after booting the the new ssd with the old data, the eth1 and eth2 did switch to eno1 and eno2.
    so i could not see the no network was visible.
    with attaches monitor and Konsole ifconfig i could see this.


    with:
    ifconfig eno1 192.168.100.1 netmask 255.255.255.240
    i changed the data from something to the correct ip and netmask, so i could open the OMV with browser.


    in OMV Network i deleted the old eth1 and searched for a new one which is the eno1, reboot, and everything is fine.


    after this i enlarged the boot and swap partition with GParted on external linux.
    first deleting everything but boot, than enlarging boot and new(larger) swap partition.
    after the first boot, i received some zombies, but now everything is fine 2.0.

    boring OMV.
    it runs and and runs and runs and runs and ru ...

    Edited once, last by rsrsrs: gparted ().
