    Hello all,

    about to upgrade from OMV4 to 5 and want to do a clean install. The Armbian website offers me two different versions of Buster for the Odroid HC2 to download: the regular version with a 4.14.y Kernel and the Minimal version with a 5.4.y Kernel. Both are considered stable. Which one do I take? Can I use minimal, and if yes, should I?


    Am I missing something really obvious?

    Odroid HC1 / HC2 / MC1 – Armbian

    I cannot see the 5.4y Kernel version of Buster - has it been removed or I am being a bit dim?

    Thank you - must have been so long since I last installed OMV that I had not realised that there had been a change.

    Out of interest, is there any difference between the previous method and the new one?

    Am I correct in thinking that the Sourceforge version of the HC2 image was Debian that was adapted for SBC devices, whereas the new method uses Armbian, which is superior (because it has been specifically developed for SBC devices)?

    I am considering reinstalling, using the new method, but will not bother if they are identical.

    Thank you - have tried that and get the following.

    Unfortunately, I seem to be going round in circles with this:

    Hi there.

    Am running OMV5 on an Odroid HC2.

    I am currently running the latest version of TVH (4.3-1587), which has not been updated since November 2019.

    As per this thread - Bug #5673: Buster armhf Builds - Tvheadend (see post #20).

    I have tried to install the latest version of TVH, but have got a strange output:

    Any advice on what to do would be very much appreciated.


    I recently updated my server to OMV 5 and upon trying to reinstall TVHeadend, noticed that installation, on ARM devices running Buster, was a bit different and ended up on this page for the installation:

    I successfully installed 4.3-1857~g221c29b40 and it has been fine, but for a major issue - OTA EPG grabbing will not refresh properly.

    The only way to get new data is to restart the server.

    I am trying to find a newer version of TVH 4.3 and noticed on this page:…ptRepositories#Ubuntu-PPA

    that there is an unofficial Michale Marley PPA, offering newer builds.

    I tried to add the unstable version but am getting the following error:

    I would be really grateful for some advice on what to do, next.

    Hmmmm - hadn't realised that Portainer existed as well.

    I like to think of myself as being pretty good with computers, but anything involving Docker just confuses me - no matter how much I read about it, I just cannot seem to understand the benefit of it over a regular plugin.

    Try using the images of and Portainer as GUI for Docker, might make things a little easier and visual.

    More straight forward: docker-compose.

    If I am not ever sure, exactly, what this means, do you think I should probably not mess around with it?

    Perfect - thanks for clarifying (I have just read, on another one of your answers on another thread, that MYSQL and MariaDB are the same - that clears up a lot of issues that I may have run into!).

    I think I am going to install MariaDB directly onto my server - I spent some time, a while back, trying to get to grips with Docker but never got on with it.

    Hi there.

    Have just upgraded my Odroid HC2 to to OMV 5 and noticed that there appears to be no plugin for MYSQL.

    On OMV 4, I used MYSQL to share watched/resume status between my various Kodi clients: - this page suggests that MariaDB is more common nowadays.

    What are my options, now? I have been looking around this forum and it is suggested that there will be no-such SQL plugin for OMV 5.

    Should I install MYSQL or MariaDB on my server, directly?

    Hi there.

    I am currently trying to use the RSnapshot plugin but am struggling with an ownership issue.

    My setup:

    Server1 (my active server, - has a single shared directory called "Server" - this contains a folder called "Documents" that I am trying to backup. "Server" is share on my network via NFS.

    Server2 (my backup server, - has a single shared directory called "Backup".

    I installed the Remotemount plugin, on Server2, and successfully mounted the "Server" directory as follows:

    Type: NFS
    Name: Servermount
    Share: /export/Server
    NFSv4 = Off
    Options= rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr,nofail these were the default

    I then went to the Rsnapshot plugin and tried to add a new backup job with the following:

    Name: Documents
    Device: Servermount
    Path: /Documents
    Permissions: R/W, R/W, R

    However, when I click on save, I get the following error:

    Failed to set file group to 'users' for '/srv/52d62ec6-054e-422e-9a36-a29afb5ab232/Documents/':

    What does this mean?

    I have tried absolutely everything and cannot get rid of the error.

    Further to the above, am I missing a step?

    Do I have remotemount the folder in question, then share add it as a shared folder and then add it as a job to Rsnapshot?

    Edit - I have tried to do both ways and I keep getting the error about setting the file group to 'users'.

    I am absolutely stuck, now.

    As per Solution#2 (https://forum.openmediavault.o…tions-to-common-problems/), I do not want to start messing around with NFS mounts outside of the web interface.

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I have just installed a new hard drive in my HC2 and am also thinking about upgrading from OMV4 to OMV5 in the near future (unless anyone thinks that this is a bad idea).

    I used to use a 6TB WD Red but have since replaced this with a 14TB drive, "shucked" from this:…=14tb+%2Caps%2C341&sr=8-1

    It is working absolutely fine but for the fact that I am finding that the new drive is noisier and runs slightly hotter than the Red - I believe that these 14TB are in fact White Labels, as opposed to Reds. The slightly warmer hard drive seems to be pushing the HC2's CPU into the red.

    The first thing that I am going to try is turn the HC2 over and place it on a rubber mat (as was suggested by Adoby).

    This should, hopefully, help dampen the noise and also drop the temperature a bit, with the heatsink being upwards, rather than below.

    It was also suggested that messing with /etc/default/cpufrequtils can also reduce temperatures

    Is it worth me doing this as well? In addition to using the HC2 as a NAS, I also use it for TVHeadend - would I need this extra speed?

    Another thing is the spindown issue that seems to affect Ironwolfs and and WD Reds - as mine is not "technically" a Red, should I consider seeing whether OMV might be able to control spindown again?

    Also, further to this

    Here is the link for the FW update:

    and here one for disk parking:…eshooting/shutdown_script
    @Adoby are you using this script? Any experience to share?

    am I thinking that the latest HC2 firmware update means that you do not have to bother with the disk parking script anymore on a new install?
