I have been trying to setup a OMV build but i have been plagued with issues and haven't even been able to get to the point of logging into the vault yet.
Back in early February i had ordered a cheap server chassis that could hold 16 hot swap bays at a steep discount -> https://www.newegg.com/silver-…18R?Item=N82E16811192418R
Since then Ive been struggling to find a working motherboard/CPU combo, I had 1 setup that finally allowed me to install but the network ports didn't work.
Here are the parts i still have on hand and would like to use them if i could, but ill buy new parts if needed.
CPU: LGA1151 I5-6500
The motherboards I have tried:
ASRock Rack C236M WS - Loaded OMV but the network ports wouldn't work and wouldn't recognize an IP address
ASUS WS C246M PRO - couldn't even get it to boot, kept complaining about ram, even after installing the exact model of ram they recommended.
I would like to use a server motherboard, since i am installing this in a DIY server rack i built, but i just want to start using the OMV server at this point. I've been struggling for the last 2 months and just don't know what I'm doing wrong at this point.
Any help is appreciated.
