RSnapshot config after update OMV3->OMV4

  • Hi,

    so the update from OMV3->OMV4 went OK. Everything working, MariaDB, Docker, ...

    I removed all plugins before upgrade.
    After upgrade:
    I reinstalled OMV Extras, rsnapshot, docker, ...

    While Docker runs after reinstalling it, RSNapshot ist empty.
    I guess i have to reconfigure it, but is it normal to loose the RSNAP and CRON definition during upgrade?
    I have several backups so i can get the config. But i cant seem to find the correct file(s) and i dont know if its a wise decision to copy such files over?

    Or just chew it and recreate every cron and Rsnap job?

    thanks Chris

    I removed all plugins before upgrade.

    That was not needed. It would have been enough to remove those plugins which are not available for OMV4.

    If you would have kept rsnapshot-plugin it would have been migrated to OMV4 including the modification.

    So, one option would be to restore OMV3. Remove only plugins not supported in OMV4 and upgrade.

  • Hi,

    OK, i will know for the next time though.
    For now i will jump through the loop and recreate the RSNAPShot Tasks.

    Why i removed everything from OMV was because I had a problem restarting OMV4
    (I found out it was because one of my harddrives was not recognized for it had several PID IDs, i had to reformat it. So the Plugins werent the problem.)

    Anyways, thanks and keep up the great work.
