Move openmediavault os and config from hdd to sd

  • I have omv running from hdd and same hdd is used as media for storage. I want to move boot os to sd card and format the hdd to be used only for media

    What do you think


  • If you're going to format the HDD anyway, by far the easiest way is to just reinstall OMV on the SD card.

    Take notes/screenshots of your setup, and do a fresh install like cubemin suggested. When you create users on the new install make sure you do so in the same order as they were created in the previous install so they will have the same user IDs they did before.

    Simple and sure backup and restore: In a Scheduled Job: rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SOURCE/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DESTINATION/ (HT: Getting Started with OMV5)
    Server Software: OMV 5 (current) - My Main Server: Thinkserver TS140, Nextcloud, Plex, Airsonic, Navidrome, Ubooquity, Digikam, & Heimdall - My Backup Machine: NanoPi M4 (v.1), Pi-Hole - Odroid XU4 (Using DietPi) - Testing/Playing: hc2, xu4, Pi 3B+, Odroid H2.
