Login loop without sda being full

  • Hi everyone.


    I have a fresh installation of OMV on my thin client HP t5550, where I have one 16GB SSD as primary and 2TB HDD for data archiving.

    It is used as a simple fileserver for remote torrents/downloading. I have used the latest image from OMV site as installation source.

    First day or two everything was ok, but since this morning I cannot log in. The login works in a "loop" - just returns to login after providing correct username/password.

    I have logged in with ssh and df command provided the following:


    root@HServer:~# df

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on

    udev 930524 0 930524 0% /dev

    tmpfs 190840 4604 186236 3% /run

    /dev/sda1 13391148 2289180 10402016 19% /

    tmpfs 954192 0 954192 0% /dev/shm

    tmpfs 5120 0 5120 0% /run/lock

    tmpfs 954192 0 954192 0% /sys/fs/cgroup

    tmpfs 954192 0 954192 0% /tmp

    /dev/sdb1 1921802500 39822580 1881963536 3% /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Data


    As you may see, sda1 is only 19% full. I went through the forum and everywhere people are suggesting to try [How-To] Fix full OS filesystem - GUI login loop which seems to be not for my case.

    omv-firstaid didn't help either...

    Actually this is the second installation. First time I had to simply wipe everything and re-install again, because couldn't find any reason for this malfunction.


    Any ideas? Please, advise...

  • Thanks!


    Checked it.

    /var/log/openmediavault is empty.

    /var/log/nginx contain few log files, including openmediavault-webgui_access.log

    If I try to log in, this file gets the following data:

  • Totally confused.

    Have installed Chrome browser and tried to log in - it works!

    Looks like OMV web server(nginx) or scripts "doesn't like" Mozilla...

    Firefox is fine. This strongly suggests a cache issue of some sort, IMO. If you open Firefox in Privacy Mode, can you log into the webUI? If so, in a regular tab Go to the OMV sign in screen, Hold Control and Click F5 (or your browsers refresh button).


    See if you can log in.

    I've found this to be the case.

    Firefox allows for selectively clearing the browsers cache without clearing out everything. Under Tools, Options, Privacy & Security, Cookies and Site Data, use the Manage Data button. Delete the IP address or entry for OMV and save.

    On the other hand, it's always good to have two browsers installed for troubleshooting sites.
