OMV 4.x Or OMV 5.x on Debian 10.2?

  • Hellow,



    I am new in OMV and i just installed Debian 10.2. I want to install Omv
    but i dont know which version. Should i go with OMV 5.x or OMV 4.X?



    Can you suggest me which version and the links if it possible.



    Thank you.

  • Thank you for your answer. I have already downloaded Omv 5.0.5 iso. and i dont know exaxly what i have to do...
    My system is 64 bit and i am running debian 10.2 amd 64 bit. if something has to do with all these.

  • Boot from the ISO and install OMV on your system drive.
    But if you have already installed Debian 10 you can just install OMV using one of the two links above. The first link will be the easiest one.


    The user guide, which is linked in my signature, will be helpful for you.

    I think his confusion is the second link only refers to SBC's... and votdev's might be a bit intimidating compared to the easy install script. He probably doesn't realize the script is the same, since the link doesn't specifically mention 64bit.


    OP, to install on top of Debian 10 on a 64 bit system, here's the easy install script.

  • And make sure you have installed Debian without desktop environment.

    Thank you for your answers. Well i finnaly made it work (somehow ). Now i have Debian 10.2 with OMV 5.X. But why without desktop environment_? I installed debian with KDE Plasma and continue using it,... Oppps i did something wrong?

    Yes. You're going to run into conflicts at some point.


    OMV isn't designed to run alongside a GUI.

    With my "old" system (OMV v4) I had installed Xfce besides OMV (the base install was Debian 9 and afterwards I've installed OMV).
    I didn't face any problems with this system - Debian 9 with Xfce and OMV (side by side). This system was running around one year without any hassles.


    With my "new" system (OMV v5 on Debian 10) I plan to do the same.

    OMV-Server-HW: MoBo Fujitsu D3417-B2 (Intel-LAN), Intel Xeon E3-1245 v6 Kaby Lake (4x3.70GHz), 16GB-Ram ECC UDIMM, 1x512GB SSD Samsung 850 Pro (sda2 - 30GB system, 4GB swap, sda5/rest - for work), 1x 10TB WD Red Pro, 1x 3TB WD Red (both basic setup) - Digibit R1 Sat-IP-Server with SatIP-Axe-Firmware


    OMV-Server-SW: Debian Buster with Proxmox kernel (always up-to-date), OMV v5 (always latest), omv-extras-plugin (always latests), AutoShutdown-Plugin, Docker with PlexMediaServer, TVHeadend, any many more

    xfce doesn't have as many configuration/auto-mounting services running as KDE, Gnome, etc but I would still say you got lucky and just didn't run any of the configuration programs xfce has. I definitely recommend not running a desktop environment. OMV is designed to be headless.

    I learned a long time ago, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should"....
