Space Needed for OMV5

    1. Many users here (most?) have their system running on a 32GIG USB flash drive. Don’t waste a SATA port on your system OS.
    2. you don’t need a separate drive for file data, just make sure is not on the same drive as the OS.

    Hi Agricola,


    Thank you for your respond. I will explore the method to use usb flash drive and I agree to not waste my sata port.


    Ok 1 other question about data file, does it need a separate partition or I can just create it in my storage drive without a need of partition.

  • Hi, in my first day of vacation i was able to sit at my desk for work on my installation.
    First i discovered why it was impossible for me run a OMV VM on my notebook, it hangs completely: bridged network over wifi not compatible with my hardware.. so i "learned" i need to port forwarding a NAT network. On this VM i figured how to route the traffic of various containers in other containers (i hope you can understand my "engrish"): for start it's qbittorrent running through "gluetun".


    I'm happy like a little baby playing with a new toy.


    The next thing would be "syncthing". Then i'll want to explore the potentiality and flexibility of OMV + Docker.

    Could you suggest some "interesting" containers? Soimething about streaming music/movies, or something you consider a "must-have".


    T H A N K S for all

    Message for myself: before asking a question, remember reading Guides, Wiki and forum threads....

  • Soimething about streaming music/movies

    Plex, Emby, or Jellyfin.
