I have spent some hours last months giving a try to OMV 4, and because of issues then also tried OMV5.
I never managed to boot into OMV4, because of the system couldn't find the boot point. I have search and found the first-aid tutorial but nothing helped. I didn't want to give up so easy and i wanted to give more chance.
So i moved to version 5 (i thought something has to be better and improved).
Truth is everything was easy and fine with 5.0.5 , installing, booting, accessing web interface, creating RAID1 (mirror) and enabling SMB / shared folder. ALL GOOD! I was very happy getting this results with stability and speed !!!
My second test, since my intention is to use the server professionally, is break the raid (remove 1 hard drive out of 2). I have shutdown the system normally and just remove the sata cable.
The system couldn't even boot, ALERT! /dev/sdc1 not exist (dropping on shell). To my perception this is a lot of risk loosing data in case of 1 drive failure, and this caused boot issues to the system.
Of course i expect this not to happen, because this is the whole philosophy of RAID, still have your DATA when a hard disk fail, instead of this i couldn't even boot. Not good experience.
Is there anything else i can do or try ?
