sharedfolders messed up after reboot

  • Dear All,

    I‘ve tried to install a WLAN Adapter this morning, which failed when trying to apply the configuration. I‘ve tried and failed several times, and always rolled back the configuration again. I gave up and rebooted my NAS. Afterwards all sharedfolders were empty. As I use Unifi in a Docker container, which relies on a shared Appdata folder, my whole network is down as well.

    I‘ve recovered from the initial shock, after I‘ve realized, that all my data is still correctly available under /srv/dev-by-disk-.... However, I‘m unable to recreated the sharedfolder structure so my system remains unusable.

    I‘ve tried to remove Rsync jobs, SMB shares, deleted and recreated shares via the OMV web-ui, but no folders are created under /sharedfolders anymore.

    Any idea how to fix that will be much appreciated.

    I‘m on OMV 5.4.7-1 Usul with 5.5.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 backport kernel, if it helps...

    Due to excessive numbers of problems, OMV no longer populates /sharedfolders. If you really must have this capability (back) then see this post for the fix, but change the word NO to YES.

  • Thank You, Sir! That was it. My system is working again...

    Gee, what a relief! I increasingly understand why votdev decided not to provide an official upgrade pathway this time.

    Just for my understanding: Is it "good practice" now, that

    - Shares continue to exist, but do no longer bind to the /sharefolder tree

    - The whole /sharedfolder tree should no longer exist/be required

    - Instead docker containers should reference the /srv/... tree directly

    So, if I adapted all docker containers accordingly, I could disable the sharedfolders again and live happily ever after?
