latest omv update problems

  • Today's update to 6.0.7-1 is causing some problems. Although GUI sees disks, I cannot see or select File Systems to mount. I have to mount manually. For the moment, that is the only issue I see.

  • And now... I can no longer send files to my shared folders... Oh boy. I have set all permissions to R/W, but now client computers indicate "Unix/Root" needs to provide permission... What happened with the update?

  • I assume you are installing on a raspberry or similar. Installing debian 10 buster will install OMV5. Installing debian 11 bullseye will install OMV6.

    It's actually "Bullseye" - the lite version - which is the version installed using the Raspberry Pi Imager.


    I believe I am finding another problem...


    I am using this connection to access a Plex Server. When Plex installs, though, it removes my "write" access to my shared folders. I am unable to turn "write" back on. Apparently, I won't be able to use Plex on these versions.

    I do not understand this. Lots of people use Plex. What does this mean?

    Any way to override and install OMV5 directly?

    If you want to install OMV5 you just need to download a debian 10 image from armbian. The OMV install script will install OMV5 when it detects this version of debian.

    I can't delete shared folders from the GUI...

    Why not? how are you doing?

    I also do not understand it. However, when I installed Plex, the "w's" for my shared folders would disappear.


    I downloaded debian 10 - the legacy Raspian Lite OS and it installed OMV5.


    GUI would not allow me to select the delete button when I highlighted the share.

    Publish your stack/yml Plex.

    To delete a shared folder there can be no service pointing to that folder. Samba, NFS, rsync, ....

    Apologies for my "Nooby-Ness," but I don't know what "stack/yml" is. No worries, though, I have reloaded to Debian 10, and reinstalled Plex, and things seem to be working again.

    Oh, and yes, I did have all services turn-off.

    How did you install Plex? With docker or otherwise ...?

    Disabled services is not enough. No service should be configured pointing to a shared folder if you want to delete it.

  • Well, since I am such a NOOB, I don't know if the commands found here: https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-plex-server/ install within Docker. I just typed commands as per the page, and Voila, it's working - on OMV5.

    This tutorial is intended to install Plex on Raspbian. It does not take into account the existence of OMV.

    What you have done is install Plex together with OMV on the Debian host. What is recommended in this forum is to use OMV plugins or docker installations. If there is no choice, you can install an application on the host, but only if you know what you are doing.

    I really don't know if installing Plex on the host can be dangerous or not, others will be able to tell you.

    Ok... I missed that step. It's obvious I don't know what I'm doing.


    Where can I find in the Forum (or elsewhere) how to install Docker as a prerequisite for installing Plex?

  • Installation, maintenance, and upgrading would be much easier using docker. Question is what kind of Raspian do you have OMV installed on, desktop or lite? You should not have a desktop with OMV.


    There is a bit of a learning curve with Docker but there is lots of help on the Guides section of the forum. Your effort will be rewarded. You won’t be sorry.

    Easy data backup: In a Scheduled Job: rsync -av --delete /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SOURCE/ /srv/dev-disk-by-label-DESTINATION/ (HT: Getting Started with OMV5)
    OMV 5 (current) - Thinkserver TS140, Nextcloud, Plex, Airsonic, Navidrome, Ubooquity, Digikam, Wetty, & Heimdall - NanoPi M4 (v.1): backups using Rsync and Rsnapshot - Odroid XU4 (Using DietPi): PiHole - hc2, xu4, Pi 3B+, Odroid H2, and VirtualBox: Testing and playing - Mac user converting to Linux, Debian 10 KDE.

    I have Raspbian 10 Lite version installed. Thanks for the encouragement to learn Docker. I suppose I just need to get the nerve - and instructions - to uninstall Plex...
