OMV6 Issues

  • Hi

    please install openmediavault-diskstats 6.0-6


    I've installed it. What/where should I see afterwards?


    Okay, let's do it in CLI.

    type

    smartctl -a /dev/sdb

    and post the output.

    Sorry, stupid question: how can I copy the output to my local clipboard? I am not so familiar with Linux commands and command line :(

  • There is something that escapes me. The results returned by smart appear to be fine, however in the GUI image the status is warning.

    yes, that's really weird. I will take the HDD off and check with HD Sentinel on my PC.

    And what about my other issue?

    I installed back mergerfs. Should I merge again the HDDs as before? Or how can I edit the shared folders? Becuase now I cannot even delete them!

  • To get back to my problem, I only mention DLNA to show that files can be seen and accessed over the network. I am not really concerned about DLNA as I prefer to use network share access - it works better, or it would if it got back to where it was. There is a fundamental change between OMV5 and OMV6 which has blocked my previous happy system. The error states it can't see the servers and I'm wondering if it could be a permissons thing. Could it be that although I have set up ACL to allow me access it still does not see me as a valid user. In this case software has not moved forward, it has moved backwards. If nobody can offer a solution or at least some ideas to try I will revert to OMV5 with which I had no problems.

    How

    Solely based on the fact that your TV cannot locate the shares on the network

    There is a fundamental change between OMV5 and OMV6 which has blocked my previous happy system

    You are basing that on what, you are failing to understand just because your 'happy system' in V5 doesn't function the same in V6 it's down to OMV when in fact your problem is Samba (SMS/CIFS) something that omv has no control over.

    If nobody can offer a solution or at least some ideas to try I will revert to OMV5 with which I had no problems

    V5 is EOL as is Debian 10 which it is based upon.

    Suggestion, not a solution, have a look in the SMB/CIFS section on here, there is possibly an option that can be added to extra options in OMV's SMB settings, as the probability is that your TV cannot communicate with the current Samba version being used on OMV.

    Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

  • The issue here is, no one knows anything about your "SMART TV".

    Here's a bit of speculation on this topic:
    Most of these "smart" devices are "propriety" so the OEM's don't feel obligated to publish tech spec's. They, instead, publish an overview of features to hook consumers into buying them. After that, they don't care. (And at the time of purchase, an overwhelming percentage of consumers don't care either.)
    I do know that, rarely (if ever) do the OEMs put out firmware upgrades for these devices and it's even more rare for users to apply them. So,,, the software/firmware tends to go out of date in a few years. Since the software world doesn't stand still, before long, these SMART devices are in the computing stone age.

    Here's a speculative fix, that may or may not work, because nothing of substance is known about the TV.

    Under Services, SMB/CIF, Settings, at the bottom there's an extra options field.

    Try the following:

    max protocol = SMB3

    Then, on the CLI:

    Code
    service smbd restart


    If it's an SBC:

    Code
    sudo service smbd restart


    Or you can simply reboot.

    If the above doesn't work, you might try:

    max protocol = SMB2
