Backup OMV and install again in VM?

  • Hey!


    i have OMV running on my PC rly well.
    My Idea is to backup the whole System on a USB Drive, then i delete OMV and install Ubuntu (need a unix with real gui to work @ remote Desktop on it).


    Then i want to install Virtualbox where i want to install my OMV Backup - still Using the exist Raid HDD´s.


    is this possible? And how (step by step please) would it work?

  • If you really need to do this it would be a lot more straight forward to run Ubuntu in a VM running on your existing OMV.

  • true! But i want to use programms that dont work on a VM.


    Other Question, when i delete OMV and install Ubuntu, the RAID HDD´s will still work?

    That sounds questionable to me. What programs that you run on installed Ubuntu will not run in a Ubuntu running in a VM?


    I have no answer for your question about your existing RAID disks.
