OMV sees the disks but not the fs, but the s.o. sees both

  • Hi everybody,


    After ruining the contents of the previous microsd with OMV6 installed of my 4GB RPI4, I proceeded to a new installation on a new microsd.


    The installation finished successfully and I redefined all options, download plugins, etc.


    Now I am in the situation that OMV6 sees all the connected disks: the microsd, a 128 GB SSD, and two 2.5 1 and 2 TB HDDs (the 2 TB one partitioned into two 1 TB ones).


    SSD is connected via the usb3, while the two HDDs are connected also to the second usb3, but they are powered separately.


    Now I am in the situation that OMV6 sees the disks,

    but not the fs

    And if I try to do a mount it only sees the two partitions of the SSD.

    Also I have the same problem with S.M.A.R.T which sees the 3 disks as a device

    But if I try to schedule a check and try to select the device it doesn't find anything.

    I have forced the mount of the disks from fstab

    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    PARTUUID=1f09f3c2-01 /boot vfat defaults 0 2

    PARTUUID=1f09f3c2-02 / ext4 noatime,nodiratime,defaults 0 1

    # a swapfile is not a swap partition, no line here

    # use dphys-swapfile swap[on|off] for that

    # added manually

    PARTUUID=769ce51b-01 /media/Backup_A ext4 defaults 0 0

    PARTUUID=9a9cbdb3-01 /media/Backup_B ext4 defaults 0 0

    PARTUUID=9a9cbdb3-02 /media/Altro ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

    And the s.o. sees them

    I also tried a write test with success.


    Also, with the previous version of OMV6 (I don't remember which one) I had no problem, it saw both disks and fs and allowed me to create shared folders by selecting fs, so, personally, I rule out it being a disk power problem also because at the s.o. level there are no reported anomalies.


    So what could it be?


    The current version I am using is 6.0.43-1 on the latest 64 version of raspios lite from September, kernel 5.15.61-v8+



    Thank you very much!

    Added the Label OMV 6.x
  • Hi folk,

    the solution for the filesystem issue is NOT to mount the fs with tools other than OMV's.

    The problem of S.M.A.R.T not allowing scheduling checks remains.

    Thanks and best regards,

    You need to enable SMART monitoring for the devices. Go to the devices tab in the SMART page, edit the disk and enable monitoring. After that you can use that disk for scheduled tests.

  • Hi MrFaggio,

    I think I have a similar issue. How did you get the settings right again?
    Did you remove entries from /etc/fstab?

    Thanks

    Hi Christian2,

    I confirm it.

    With the last version of OMV you do not insert the data disks in /etc/stab, so OMV can detect them and you can add them.

    BR,

    You are right.

    Thank you very much!

  • Hi folk,

    If you have similar problems, I recommend the following video by Techno Dad (very well done and which unfortunately I only discovered a short while ago) that explains the main settings of OMV 6.
