    Dear All,


    I have a problem with SMB and Macbook. SMB on mackbook (Monteray OS) is quite slow compared to windows. For example, using Beyond Compare to compare folders taks ages on mac while in Windows is very fast. I have tried:


    1) Made the nsmb.conf file in /etc/ (since Big Sur doesnt make one by default) and added the "[default] signing_required=no" lines.

    2) added the "var objects = fruit" line to the config in my OMV SMB server.

    3) ran the terminal line: sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack=0


    Unfortunately, BCompare is still very slow compared to Windows. The issue is clear to be on macbook.


    Do you have the same issue. Do you know how can it be fixed?


    Thanks!!

    I have tried to install again OMV 6, I have tried to install some plugin and I have the error:


    260.495357] systemd-journald(332]: Failed to write entry (9 items, 247 bytes), ignoring: Read-only file system


    Still I cannot install any update as well, but for sure it is due to the same issue.


    I hve tried to run omv-firstaid but I have issue as well:


    root@omv:~# omv-firstaid

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "/usr/sbin/omv-firstaid", line 24, in <module>

    import dialog

    ValueError: source code string cannot contain null bytes

    For now I am trying to install omv 6 and I followed this procedure:


    disconnect the data drivesInstall OMV to the SSDBoot into OMVrun "update-grub"shut down the serverconnect the data drives and bootThe result of update-grab is:root@omv:~# update-grub
    Generating grub configuration file ... Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-5.14.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-5.14.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 doneIn the meantime I have realized I could have another issue, as I have this error message:omy login: [59.001359] DMAR: DRHD: handling fault status reg2
    [59.001406] MAR: [INTR-REMAP] Request device [0x01:0x00.0] fault index 0x16 (fault reason 0x26l Blocked an interruot request due to source-id verification failureAny idea?

    I have just installed OMV 6 on Microserver Gen8. Everything seems running fine but when I updated OMV from the GUI I have the error "500 - Internal Server Error" and I am not able to update OMV 6 (report attached). Furthermore, in the boot screen, i have the error (screenshot attached):


    omy login: [59.001359] DMAR: DRHD: handling fault status reg2

    What I am doing wrong? I did not have this errors with omv 5

    After the installation on OMV 6 (most probably I could have the same issue with OMV 5) I have the error in the "boot screen" (I do not konw how I can call it any better):


    omy login: [59.001359] DMAR: DRHD: handling fault status reg2

    (screeshot attached)


    Any advice? I do not know since when I have had this issue but lately my boot SSD disappears after one/two weeks, maybe the issue could be correlated


    Thanks

    Hi Zoki, thank you for the guide. The guide confirms that I did and I am doing all right to install OMV on microserver gen8. So the problem is to find somewhere else. Any idea how to debug my issue?

    Thank you so much for such quick help. Answering your questions:


    1) Did you exchange the CD against as SSD in "Port 5" on top of the disks? Yes, I did. After that with HP utility, I created a bootable RAID0.


    2) Not lately, I think I did at the start, many years ago (I do not remember) in order to boot from RAID0 ssd.


    3) Honestly I am not sure I am able to answer correctly, but I suppose I am using RAID controller as I have created a RAID0 with ths SSD bootable disk


    I am not sure I understood correctly "you will have to use as sd-card / usb stick. wit ha boot loadter which then loads from the ssd.", as I can install OMV without any issue but after a week or two, the bootable disk disappears.


    NOw my questions are:

    1) Can I restore the bootable disk without reinstalling it one more time OMV?

    2) I can fix definitely this issue, without losing the boot disk after a while I have installed OMV


    In the forum I have read that a solution to try is to run the command "update-grub". Any idea? THX

    Dear All,


    Lately, I am having a big issue, which I cannot solve. After a new OMV 5 installation, after one week or two, OMV cannot boot on my HP microserver Gen 8, as I have the message "Non-System disk or error replace". It seems that Raid0 was created with HP to install OMV disappears. All this without doing any updates. I mean the issue is not to be correlated with an update. OMV is running on SSD and all my data are stored in 4 HDD. At the moment I have a RAID 1 plus 2 HDD just mounted (my intention is to remove RAID1). At the start, I thought it was a file corrupted or some bug, but I do not think so. After I thought it was my SSD DRAMLESS, so I replaced it with SSD DRAM, but i still have this issue. It is very frustrating as I can not understand. Whta I have noticed is that RAID0 configuration (boot SSD where OMV is running) is disappeared. Unfortunately, I do not know how to remount, as if I create a new one, I have to reinstall everything once mere time and doing again in one/two weeks.


    It is a while that I use OMV (since OMV 3) and I have never had this issue, since 4-5 months ago.


    Reading the forum I understood I could try to run "update-grub", but as the SSD is not booting I do not have any OS.


    Please could someone help me to solve my issue.


    Thank you very much!!!

    Hi tom_tav,


    Please could you explain in an easier way what I have to do, I am sorry but my skills are poor. I have a mac and a server with omv. smb is very slow, especially in read mode. I cannot use my mac with beyond compare. My old laptop (window) is a thousand times faster than my new mac to compare folders on my server. Please could you help me?


    Do you suggest AFP for mac? or SMB?


    Thank you very much!

    Thanks you again. I am using -c. If rsync will not copy corrupted files to the destination, it is a really great news to me :). It is just an assumption or it is a real fact?

    Thank you Geaves, As you suggested I have installed scrutiny, in fact it is much easier to to read to me than SMART in OMV.


    I have read the link uploaded above and it seems to reflect what I see for my drivers (pictures attached).


    WD disks seems to be good. Seagate ironwolf seems to have some errors, but based on the article it should be not real errors. Please, could you confirm? Are my disks seagate in good shape for you?


    As general attitude that I need to keep, is there any way too see what file was corrupted, I am afraid that I could back up a corrupted file with rsync and so corrupt a good file in the back up hard disk.


    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the good news :)!!!!


    I have started to use SMART just from the last week. I just mounted the HDDs in SMART, I enabled it and I created scheduled tests. Are you checking the SMART by scheduled tests report or in logs->SMART. What exactly should I check? There are so many info in the reports that I cannot understand what I have to look at? What is you best strategy, once you see something which you do not like, do you replace the HDD and you drop it in the bin? I am sorry for all my questions but I would like to learn to make prevention and avoid to cry in the future, you know what I mean. I know that I always have the backups but I would like to be more active. Thanks for your kind patience!!!

    All right, I think the best option is to go with a simple mounted disk, in order to not lose too much space. I am planning to do the secono backup now and than with an external disk. If I really need to join the 2 disks in order to map only one partition (to make easier to find the files), I could still use mergerfs, isn't it?


    My only concern is the safety of the data, as for checksum, more reliability (if any), data integrity and protection from silent corruption that normal mounted disks do not have. Is this a critical aspect or is this just a fear of mine without any reason? I cannot understand this part.

    For the new docker point position I should have clear what to do. I think I can manage it without any issue.

    At the moment rsync is close to finish its job. I completed the backup from the raid to one 6 tb disk and I am running the second back up from the raid to the second 6tb disk. So I am close to wipe the 2 x 4tb disks.


    I would like to summarize to see if I understood properly what you kindly suggested:

    1) marge 6+4tb to use for data and marge 6+4tb for the backup

    2) In order to marge and manage this setup, I need to use snapraid and mergerfs

    3) Use rysinc to continue to back up the data


    Is snapraid a better solution than normal data disk + backup for the safety of the data and disks? For safety I mean checksum, more disk/data protection, more speed, more reliability, data integrity and protaction from silent corruption.


    Thank you one more time!!!

    Thank you!!! I use my server for media (photos and music and movies). Furthermore I keep software's and documents important for me. Documents are a lot as they are personal documents and work documents. At the moment I have 4 tb used. Furthermore I use a lot docker for my containers. One of my containers is qBittorrent to download files. I do not know if it is an important info but I have 16 gb of ECC ram. Thanks for the support!!


    ^^ thread too long or silly questions ^^


    To make shorter:


    Is snapraid to prefer to normal data disk and backup, considering checksum and scrubbing? Is it giving any advantage over the normal data disk and backup?


    Furthermore how parity space works? If I have 3 data disks of 6+4+4tb (14tb), is 6 tb of parity enough? The parity is like a backup or it take less space than normal backup with equal amount of data?


    Thanks
