To train before a faillure occurs, I decided to create an unionfs and simulate a defective drive.
I fresh installed OMV5
Platform : PC, OS Proxmox latest version. i-4670k
Guest OS : OMV5 updated to latest packages.
RAM : 4GB 2xCPU core
HDD : two 2GB VirtuIO hdd, with one EXT4 partition each, 1 physical 1500GB HDD exclusively alocated to the VM.
I installed :
flashmemory to avoid access (I removed swap partition)
I created partitions and mounted the x2 hdd
Using unionfs I manage to create a 2*2GB unionfs
I added rights to everybody (Access Rightmanagement/Shared Folders)
Then I tried to create the SMB share using the resulting unionfs and here comes the drama :
I selected the x2
"Failed to create the directory '/srv/6023eb2a-130a-44d7-8a4b-d2f8a21a0811/test2hdd/':"
The SMB share is created, visible in Windows File explorer... but impossible to browse it...
Any idea please as I googled and only found request without answers.
Edit: resetting permission on Shared Rights on filesystem before creating the SMB share avoid the error message, but it's still not browsable eventhough I create the smb share with "Public Autorized"
After lots of tries, it seems that OMV doesn't like virtual HDD.
I tried with a physical HDD I didn't encountered the problem.
Now I need a disaster recovery procedure in case of HDD faillure.
