    I upgraded from 3.x to 4.x recently and just received a warning email from OMV about the status of SnapRAID. It says the following:

    Cron <root@nas2> /var/lib/openmediavault/cron.d/userdefined-5f6fd87f-bd21-48a6-bde1-4a14016699e0 | mail -E -s "Cron - SnapRAID - Scheduled diff." -a "From: Cron Daemon <root>" root >/dev/null 2>&1
    mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/tmp/snapraid’: File exists

    Do I need to do anything to fix this? I thought /tmp folder is cleared on each reboot. Do I need to remove existing /tmp/snapraid?

    If I get this error message, does that mean SnapRAID fails to run?

    I read some posts that said I need to remove plugins before upgrading. How do I handle that? Do I need to remove openmediavault-omvextrasorg 3.4.30 plugin and its related sub-plugins? I am using omv-backup, snapraid, union file system.

    So first remove the children plugins (omv-backup, snapraid, union file system) and then remove the openmediavault-omvextrasorg 3.4.30 plugin, is this correct?

    I checked and it looks like these plugins are also supported in 4.x. To reinstall the plugins I need to install openmediavault-omvextrasorg_latest_all4.deb via the web interface and then reinstall the related children plugins (omv-backup, snapraid, union file system)?

    I'm preparing to upgrade to OMV 4 so I made a backup of OMV via the openmediavault-backup 3.11 plugin. If I need to do a restore, what is the process? I see the backup folder that was created but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with it if I need to use it.

    The plugins I'm currently using are omvextrasorgs, omv-backup, snapraid, and union file system. Not sure if that has an impact or not.

    Sorry for the triple post. Please delete the extra posts. When I tried to post I kept getting the following error so I thought it failed and kept retrying:

    Fatal error: An error occured. Sorry.

    The error message can be looked up at “ACP » Logs » Errors”.

    I can't seem to figure out why I am unable to write to mounted CIFS/SMB shares using my Ubuntu box. The same share folders are mounted to my Windows 10 PCs using the same account and it has have full read/write access. When I mount the same folders in Ubuntu with the same user I can only read.

    Every time I try to create a file or folder in the mounted CIFS/SMB folder I get permission denied. I can only create files or folders if I use sudo. I assume it must be a permission issue, but I am unsure what permissions I need to add in OMV. The user "media" has R/W permission to the folder. I have used the OMV extra tool to make sure to reset the permissions and remove ACL.

    Settings in OMV:

    line in /etc/fstab from Ubuntu box:

    # mount media download folder
    // /mnt cifs credentials=/home/mediauser/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,rw 0 0

    output of df from Ubuntu box:
