omv tool documentation

  • Thank you,


    I had also noticed that the file was automatically reset.

    but more than that probably has to do with Saltstack I got by reading source text so far not out.

    Saltstack is new to me in the world of config orchestration.


    is there somewhere a documentation for

    omv-salt

    and the other /usr/sbin/omv-tools


    my research so far:

    omv-env


    omv-update aka omv-upgrade

    apt update/upgrade


    omv-mkconf

    Shell script that accepts arguments. The name of the argument is related to the service it configures. ie: omv-mkconf samba, omv-mkconf sharedfolders and so on. The arguments are all files located in /usr/share/openmediavault/mkconf folder.


    omv-engined

    RPC daemon that runs all the php backend code. The nginx web server connects to this daemon through the fastcgi php socket. If an error appears in the web interface that indicates no connection to the php socket means the daemon is not running.


    omv-firstaid


    omv-salt



    DEV


    omv-confdbadm (Database)


    omv-rpc

    This tool can execute rpc commands. This is identical of what the web frontend uses to set/get information. It accepts service, method and parameters. RPC services can be found listed in engined/rpc folder

  • Moved to a new thread since it was off topic from the upgrade thread. Seems you have found the docs for the tools. omv-mkconf is only relevant for pre-5.x versions of OMV.

    What is the omv-salt command for?omv-salt is a terminal console command that is used by the backend of openmediavault to pipe directives and values to service configuration files. The arguments that omv-salt accepts are related to the name of the service it configures. Type omv-salt in terminal, press TAB key, and the terminal will display all available arguments.

    are you sure? Surprised that Volker didn't remove it yet

    All the mkconf scripts have been removed from my OMV 5 and I did not delete them.
