OMV 6.0.5-1 unable to map drives

  • This was working and then started doing something similar to OMV 5 coming back with drives = missing.

    I just did another SD card image and;


    following the install instructions;

    open up the web interface and the disc's all display under > STORAGE > DISK






    But when you go to > FILE SYSTEMS > MOUNT

    The drop down for File System is blank

    So unable to mount anything.

    I unplugged all bar one USB it's an SSD USB-3 I am able to mount it, with the list so far being this;.



    Last night I was able to go through all of the USB devices and mount, share and set it up as I wanted, it ran well till mid morning and the came back with missing, not just one but the lot.

    Suggestions or should I just stop now and use my Win 10 box.

    Added the Label OMV 6.x (RC1)
  • If you have followed that guide I hope you have not installed OMV on raspbian desktop. Is it so? That will not work. It must be installed on top of raspbian lite.

    First time I did do lite, and had the missing issue, and sorry I was stretching the friendship (probably out of frustration) and did try the desktop, I'll redo it back to lite now.....

  • lite installed

    Working my through the USB drives now

  • One of my ext drives appears to not be playing ball, or maybe intermittently faulty. When i plugged it in and tried to search for it the STORAGE DISK just keeps ticking over, nothing shows in the shares or the S.M.A.R.T. devices. Unplug it and they all come back. What is strange is it was working, hence my intermittent thought. I will check it on my Win box and see. So far that's the only thing I've been able to test as causing a problem.

    Having said that, i've just tried to play a couple of movies over the LAN which were fine and started quickly playing with out a problem, different types and formats, anyway, today, they are really slow to come up it at all. When I go to the STORAGE DISK or S.M.A.R.T areas the same things are happening, so nothing displaying the SAMBA shares are still accessible from Windows machine. The DASHBOARD is saying CPU Utilization was down about 20% now at 50% and just dropped back to 4.8% the Memory has been sitting stable at 6% used and 95% free the movie has frozen.

    I rebooted and after restarting all the disks are showing up under STORAGE DISKS

    Played a movie file, it played fine, closed it midway through, Started another and it hangs.... with similar problems in the STARAGE DISKS not showing, and taking considerable time before they do.
