Mounting remote NFS share in OMV

  • Hi all,


    I'm currently running OMV in a VM on Proxmox, and I'd like to mount an NFS share to OMV that's being served directly from the Proxmox box. I'd like to do this so I can use this mount to store docker config files in case my OMV VM dies for whatever reason.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Cheers,

  • The remotemount plugin hasn't been ported to OMV 5.x yet.

  • Yeah I'd read about it, but couldn't find it in the extras...


    Any idea when it might be ported?


    Any other way to do this?

    When I have time. Hopefully before OMV 5.x is officially released.

    Sure. Create an nfs entry in fstab outside of the openmediavault tags, mount it, create a shared folder on any drive, and then bind mount the nfs mount to the shared folder's path.

  • I just installed OMV5 on a Pi 4 and wanted to move my files from my old NAS to OMV. I came across the remote plugin and that it isnt available in OMV5 yet.

    Can you explain more detailed how to do that?


    Or would you advise me to set up OMV4 even though it is also beta for the Pi 4 and OMV5 should be relesed soon?


    Just to be clear.. My other NAS is a Zyxel NSA320 which isn't running OMV. I enabled NFS via a plug in. And it has two drives with RAID1 bult in

  • If your Zyxel can do rsync, I would use that. Otherwise, mount the Zyxel's nfs share on your system and copy the files using the command line or midnight commander (mc).
