Server not on Router known IP devices after install

  • Hi there,

    I'm new here and I'm also a complete novice to OMV.

    I've just installed OMV 5 on a HP ProLiant G7 ML110. Install went well. After restart I'm able to long on to the root account.

    The problem is that the OMV server isn't listed among the known network devices and it's IP address is unknown to me to log in via the web interface.

    During install I was able to connect to the network without issues and updates were fetched, so it's not a connectivity issue.

    I'm using a WiFi PCI-E Card with this and not Ethernet due to the location of the Server. This may be the culprit although I don't understand how the device isn't listed along the known network devices on the router (FRITZ!Box 7560) if updates have been downloaded during install.

    Thanks for your help.

  • ip addr in the console will show you the ip address of the server

    you can use omv-firstaid to configure the network interface from the console

    Thats for the reply. I didn't have any luck with this but I did find a solution. Hopefully it can help someone else:

    I connected the NIC to the router via Cat5 and I was able to run omv-update. That was sufficient to get the WiFi card up and running post boot and for the server to be visible on the network.
