    Hi everyone,

    Struggling in obtaining an IP Address for OMV. I had a previously assigned fixed IP (assigned in Web GUI), that there were no issues with. After a power cut a couple of days ago I am now not able to find any IP to connect to the machine by the Web GUI. Cannot retrieve an IP by using ip r s or by using ip addr, the machine is not showing up on the Router Client list either, several reboots and still no IP. I have gone in through omv-firstaid also. I can login with root and I can see during the reboot the machine stalls at "a start job is running for Raise Network Interfaces" it then says "started raised network services".

    Just now trying to reset through omv-firstaid it says Failed to execute command - Cannot Create Socket to localhost 2812 - Connection Refused.

    Any assistance would be greatly received. I have tried this with an onboard network card and PCI card too, same problem.

    Just tried to "apt-get update"

    The following appeared on the terminal:

    E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
    I ran the command and the system is now updating.

    Will see if the PMS problem persists.

    Evening all,

    Having some (basic) issues undesratnding why PlexMS & OMVExtras Plugins show Size 0:00 B. I am trying to reinstall both but not really sure what I am doing incorreclty. I have the plugin deb files and try to install them through WEBGUI. Tried uninstall them also and get the following:

    Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C; export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive; apt-get --yes --auto-remove --purge remove openmediavault-plexmediaserver 2>&1' with exit code '100': E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

    I am not by any means an expert with OMV but have the basics going at the moment with SMB/CIFS Shares. Also previously had PMS up and running but not sure what happened as eventually could not reach the PlexWebClient for no apparent reason. I run into this issue trying to reinstall the above. Not an expert on Terminal either but willing to learn.

    Thanks in advance for your support.


    Thanks for the support:

    1. No I had not seen the last question, thanks for that observation and pointing me towards that rather easy fix. There were other error messages when trying to connect with omv-firstaid indicating that the connection was denied etc. Still baffled why that even happened.

    2. I had assigned a fixed IP within the main router which seemed to work well until it then reassigned another address for some reason (not sure why). I think I have the dhcp addresses starting after 20 on the router so that should be easy enough.

    Brilliant advice guys, thanks. I also posted the original post and got an error when doing so. Really surprised the post even got sent!!

    Thanks again for the responses.

    Good day everyone,

    First of all thanks to each and everyone of you who contribute to the creation and upkeep of OMV. I will be the first to admit I am a total newbie when it comes to the system but I have had some experiences lately which I cannot even begin to understand so looking for some assistance if at all possible. Yes, I have searched the forum and yes, I do understand that Arrakis is still not officially released.

    I have only been using the system for a couple of months and figured through reading to go ahead and start using OMV 4.1.1. I don't recall having similar problems with the previous version but many I have seen said go ahead and update. I had assigned a fixed IP through my router (since removed). I will now go and assign a fixed IP it through the OMV Web GUI.

    It has taken me two days to actually get an IP address that I could login to. That was with using omv-firstaid (i have a monitor and keyboard setup) coming up with an error every time I used first aid.Plus the "No Network Devices on boot too. Even using ip r s would not be recognised along with ifconfig not been recognised either (command not found) eth0 doesn't exist either, I am sure I have managed all of the above with ease previously. My network adapter is onboard, the system runs well when it's up. But really should it take me two days to get an IP from the machine and even then I got it through booting up into recovery and then using ip r s and then I was able to get an IP. My router was also previously not showing an IP either but now yes.

    Sorry for the long winded post, can someone offer up any help on the above as I am not completely clear what caused it or for that matter how to fix it other than what I described. As far as I can see all updates are installed.I just did a reboot from being in recovery mode and it seems to be up and running again without any issue. Even still I would welcome some advice if someone would care to offer some please.

    I love the system when it is up and running and have been able to share media around the house on phones, tablets and other devices, work on shared documents and even working with RSYNC a little (successfully). I am taking it day by day before finally getting all my data residing on the machine but baby steps and trial and error.

    Thanks again for all of the support and material on the forum.
