Symlinks in OMV6

  • Hello there,


    I have installed and tested OMV6 and so far all good for my use cases. :)

    Do you know if the Symlinks plugin does or will exist in OMV6 ? :/ (did not find it )


    Thanks for your feedback !

  • According to ryecoaaron It will.. It's just not done yet. He's having trouble getting moving on OMV 6 plugins. They're very easy to do at the command line however.


    ln -s /path/source /path/link

    Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.


  • straight forward...? Yes I thought so too....

    Well, what I tried to do was to create a folder name (symlink) named /data1 to be equivalent to :

    /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-7b08e125-678c-41a0-8792-fc805940897c/data1/


    edit : (just to be clearer) /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-7b08e125-678c-41a0-8792-fc805940897c/data1/ is a shared folder


    My expectation was that following the symbolic link creation a command like ls -lsR /data1 will give me the same output than ls -lsR /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-7b08e125-678c-41a0-8792-fc805940897c/data1/ /data1/


    so far, all my attempts failed ....the ls result was only one line with the link name.....but maybe that is expected ....:)

  • I guess I'm confused... if /uuid/data1 has sub directories.. It seems to me it is working exactly as expected.

  • Nevermind, I think I see what you're saying now.. yeah I'm pretty sure you would have to cd into each individual directory for that command to work. I only use symlinks to make setting up stacks/docker-compose easier (and can also keep it consistent between builds, replacing drives, etc..) so that's not a situation I've ever ran into.

  • OK understood and agreed.

    So I will have to test to see if my scripts (backups and docker compose) are working in that configuration (since I just gave up when I saw that the ls command was not doing what I expected.)

    Thanks for your feedback and link.

    I guess we can close this with a resolve status
