When I go the Shared Folder section to maintain the shared folders (i.e. create, change, delete), it takes forever to load the list of shares I have created. Although I have a lot of them (126), it looks like the time it takes to load the list seemed to be increasing rapidly.
SInce the last few days the list of shares does not show up anymore. I only receive messages like 'an error has occurred' and 'communication failure'. So not really a satisfying answer.
As a result of that (at least it appears to me as being a result of that) editing the list of Rsync tasks (local only, I don't use remotes), SMB/CIFS shares etc, (where-ever a shared folder is needed) the dropdownboxes are not being populated from the shared folders but only the errormessage 'communication failure' is displayed.
I have been running OMV (first 4, later 5 as a sole system on USB and now 5 as a VM under Proxmox) for some years now, but since a few months the shared folder issue started.
When I started using OMV5 under Proxmox there was no issue although I had the same number of shared folders.
Is there a solution for this so that I can really work with OMV5 again?
Some more background.
- I run Docker and Portainer (under OMV4 I only ran Docker) and the docker installation path is not on the OMV5-boot-disk but from the start on a separate directory on an other disk (using absolute path). All dockers installed are also using absolute paths to locations not on the OMV5 boot-disk. (installed via templates and previously via docker-compose v2)
- The host PC on which Proxmox runs has several USB-disks attached, which are managed via the OMV5-VM under LVM2 (ext4) as they were created in the past under the OMV4 physical machine.
As Proxmox is not really able to mount LVM2-logical volumes / filesystems from scratch, I have left this within the OMV5-VM. I do not yet want to go through the large effort of copying (syncing) the contents of the logical volumes to ext4 filesystems, format the disks to not contain lvm2 filesystems anymore and then sync them back to be able to mount them in Proxmox.
Is there anyone who can help me solving the problem with the shared folders?
Thanks in advance for your support.
