OMV 4.1.19-Arrakis on rpi3 Issues and sollutions

  • Hi,


    Here are some informations to people trying the v4.x on raspberry pi3 for the 1st time.


    1/ After flashing and trying to boot OMV:
    - if the webserver doesn't start du an error like no such adress family:
    => the error is likely related to ipv6 not available in the system and nginx trying to listen (create) an ipv6 socket.
    The solution is to edit /etc/nginx/sites-available/default and /etc/nginx/sites-available/openmediavault-webgui
    and comment lines similar to: listen [::]:80 default_server;
    You should only have: listen 80;
    # listen [::]:80 ipv6only=off;
    in both files.
    then restart nginx (systemctl restart nginx
    then finish debian confioguration apt reconfigure nginx-full


    2/ You don't have an US keyboard and want for example a french keyboard:
    apt-get install console-data
    (and if you want to change: dpkg-reconfigure console-data)


    3/ You can't mount an ntfs file system (fuse error (module missing or bad symbol))
    Update the kernel:
    apt install rpi-update
    rpi-update
    reboot


    => Got 4.14.97-v7+ and worked fine


    4/ changing web admin password:
    It's not in Access Right Management/Users
    Nor it is in a Security section.
    it's hidden in System/General Settings second tab: Web administrator password


    5/ You don't know your IP:
    Method 1:
    Use a console and log in as root (password is the same as web admin user)
    change root password (forced)
    Some system informations are displayed in color. IP is displayed. if it isn't, this means that you didn't get one (either cable not connected or no dhcp answer)


    Method2: (no console)
    use nmap to search for local network port 80 and or port 22 openned and try to guess. (you should better use a screen + kbd for the 1st time ans system may not start nginx if not ipv6 is configured.


    6/ Can't create a share: system won't let chose any device.
    I'm stuck here....
    Also can't share on mini dlna (same issue)
    Disk section sees my ntfs disk and it is mounted and it can compute capacity

  • if the webserver doesn't start

    Then you missed the readme at the download location. Simply follow the readme.txt, wait for the automatic reboot and everything is fine (all packages are installed and after one automated reboot everything will be up and running)


    You don't have an US keyboard and want for example a french keyboard

    No need to attach a keyboard. OMV can be operated truly headless.


    You can't mount an ntfs file system

    See above. You ignored the readme at the download location. Simply back to square one, this time allowing OMV to finish the installation. The recommendation to install and use rpi-update is not necessary but dangerous.


    You don't know your IP

    You don't need to 'know your IP' since name resolution works since decades. Simply access the web UI via http://raspberrypi or http://raspberrypi.local


    you should better use a screen + kbd for the 1st time ans system may not start nginx if not ipv6 is configured

    Wrong, see issue N° 1 above.


    I would suggest starting over from scratch this time letting the installation finish since all of your various issues are resolved once the readme.txt at download location has been followed: https://sourceforge.net/projec…/Raspberry%20Pi%20images/
