Installing OMV on Raspberry Pi Can't load the GUI

  • I have tried installing OMV 4 on my Pi 3 B+ a few times now. I Use etcher to create the SD with the "OMV_4_Raspberry_Pi_2_3_3Plus.img.xz" image. I do get some errors when its installing but they go by too fast to read. I can see the that the Server and Reverse Proxy have failed to load.

    I am able to ping the Pi. However When I go to the IP ( I am greeted with T"his site can’t be reached - refused to connect."

    How can I get the pi to accept a connection?

    If I watch the installation to the Pi on a monitor it eventually displays a prompt to log into raspberry pi. Neither the default user/pass of pi/raspberry or admin/openmediavault work at this prompt so im not sure what to enter.

    Any help appreciated. Nothing i've found in the last two days has helped

    Make sure to strictly follow the instructions on the sourceforge site.

    And there have been several issues during first boot up when a display was connected to the Pi.
    So make sure the Pi has internet connection, boot the Pi for the first time w/o display and wait.

  • Thanks macom! I am kind of new at this and I don't see an obvious link on sourceforge for the instructions. I followed instructions on OMV site. I am resetting the SD and will try again without my monitor attached. I assume it will use the same IP address.

    Use the image from here and follow the instructions on that site…/Raspberry%20Pi%20images/

    Especially "internet access" and "patience" ;) Depending on the SD card, 20min might even not be enough.
