Notification working but not sending updates

  • I recently installed OMV 5 and after a few struggles got everything set up and working I think, however one of the last things I did was set up notifications. I put in my email credentials, sent and received a test email several times, but I have not gotten any notifications for things like software updates or the usual Snapraid messages. The test emails still work so I'm at a bit of a loss why none of the notifications seem to be working, any ideas?

  • I’m not looking at it right now so I can’t be exact, but there is a settings tab in Notifications where you can select which kinds of notifications you want to receive.

    Simple and sure backup and restore: In a Scheduled Job: rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SOURCE/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DESTINATION/ (HT: Getting Started with OMV5)
    OMV 5 (current) - Hardware: Thinkserver TS140, Nextcloud, Plex, Airsonic, Navidrome, Ubooquity, Digikam, & Heimdall - NanoPi M4 (v.1), backup - Odroid XU4, Pi-Hole (DietPi) - Testing/Playing: hc2, xu4, Pi 3B+, Odroid H2. Mac user trying to convert to Linux on a HP dx2400, Debian 10 XFCE.

  • I had it backwards: The Settings tab is where you set it up, and Notifications is where you choose which emails to receive. Do you have the "Enable" button green in Settings?

    Yes I do. The test email works perfectly over and over, but updates that have been available for days and snapraid notifications just aren't being sent.

  • I wish I could help but I have already exhausted my "vast" storehouse of knowledge. Hopefully someone will be able to point you to the solution. Someone is always saying "Clear your browser's cache" but I don't know if that would be applicable in this situation. Maybe restart your server. Got a large hammer?

    No problem, my vast storehouse is really a cardboard box with a side missing. I imagine there might be a command or something i can run to trigger it and then check the logs to see why nothing happened, but I don't know what that might be so I come here, generally works out after a little bit of fussing around I find.

  • Still hoping for some help if anyone has any clue what might be wrong. Right now after enabling and disabling notifications, it appears to work for snapraid and system load alert messages, but still doesn't notify for software updates.

  • I have the same issue; I'm not getting any email notification for OMV updates even though I'm able to receive the test email.


    Any help on where or how to debug?


    Thanks!





  • For me this has been broken for so long that I gave up on it.

    OMV AMD64 5.x on ASRock Rack C2550D4I C0 Stepping - 16GB ECC - Silverstone DS380 + Silverstone DS380 DAS Box.

  • Same Issue here. I am getting emails with Monitoring Alert which are basically when I disconnect or create new mount point etc and the test and login from new devices. I disabled only the process notifications, everything else is enabled and the global setting is enabled too.


    No notifications for SMARTS , system updates , CPU and Load.. Would love to have some fix to this issue.

  • Notifications in general seem not to be working very well, if at all. I've posted that I can't even get the test e-mail to work, and there's little to indicate the source of the problem in the log files. Tried with both hotmail and gmail accounts to set it up, and was working fine in OMV4....

  • Just to add to this, the only thing I get in the syslog when I try and send a test e-mail is the following:


    Code
    Jul 19 10:27:01 openmediavault CRON[29918]: (root) CMD ( test -x /usr/sbin/wakealarm && /usr/sbin/wakealarm > /dev/null 2>&1)
