I have a Proliant N54L with BIOS hack unlocking 5th drive. Was running OMV4 over Debian on a partitioned SSD without issues. 5x HDD with luksencryption (unlocking with a file).
Tried to upgrade to OMV5 but that failed so went with a fresh install, same setup but installing over Debian to a 16Gb USB (tried OMV ISO but presume the flash drive is too small for direct install).
All good, set everything up, installed Extras and Docker etc, but on first reboot after being able to load GUI I can’t boot. Have tried fresh install again, same result. Tried with updated kernel, still the same.
The error is-
You are in emergency mode. After logging in, type “journalctl -xb” to view system logs, “systemctl reboot” to reboot, “systemctl default” or “exit” to boot into default mode.
The red errors in journalctl -xb are-
Base address is zero, assuming no IPMI interface
