    Hi all,

    Following the docs carefull (and note I have created MANY shares over the years) I am now stuck with a new error stopping me creating shares.

    • I head to the Share link.
    • Add a share.
    • Give it a name, leave path as default, permissions to everyone read write for now.
    • Save.
    • Approve change at bar at top

    I then get this error:

    Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; systemctl restart 'sharedfolders-Rsync\x2dBackups.mount' 2>&1' with exit code '1': Assertion failed on job for sharedfolders-Rsync\x2dBackups.mount.

    with details of:

    Error #0: OMV\ExecException: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; systemctl restart 'sharedfolders-Rsync\x2dBackups.mount' 2>&1' with exit code '1': Assertion failed on job for sharedfolders-Rsync\x2dBackups.mount. in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/system/ Stack trace: #0 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/system/ OMV\System\Process->execute(Array, 1) #1 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/system/ OMV\System\SystemCtl->exec('restart', NULL, false) #2 /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/module/ OMV\System\SystemCtl->restart() #3 /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/rpc/ OMVModuleSharedfolders->startService() #4 [internal function]: OMVRpcServiceConfig->applyChanges(Array, Array) #5 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ call_user_func_array(Array, Array) #6 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethod('applyChanges', Array, Array) #7 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->OMV\Rpc\{closure}('/tmp/bgstatus2V...', '/tmp/bgoutputYN...') #8 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->execBgProc(Object(Closure)) #9 /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethodBg('applyChanges', Array, Array) #10 [internal function]: OMVRpcServiceConfig->applyChangesBg(Array, Array) #11 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ call_user_func_array(Array, Array) #12 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethod('applyChangesBg', Array, Array) #13 /usr/sbin/omv-engined(536): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('Config', 'applyChangesBg', Array, Array, 1) #14 {main}

    Now I don't have a share called `Rsync` and I'm not sure if that's the problem.

    What can I do to work this out?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I wonder if you'd be able to show a screen shot of your setup?
    I am in particular interested in:
    - the ports (is it Bridge If so, what is the host name?)
    - the volumes (i see there are three, I don't follow and would love to see how that looks and why there are three)

    If you don't mind it would be very helpful

    That would be amazing. I can wait. I keep seeing questions on how, but there's no clear step by steps. For example, if I need to install anything on say my ubuntu desktop machine, what is that I need to install? Should I be using The OMV Plugin "Remote Mount" (been researching)? If so, how the hell do I set that up as I'm failing miserably at that too. It's a minefield for those of us less savvy. Anything step by step and logical would be really appreciated.

    My apology.

    I am trying to pull from folders on computers on my home network to my OMV server using rsync.

    My understanding is I can somehow:

    1 - In OMV, define a folder on one of my local computers as a some kind of share / access point
    2 - Tell the rsync plugin to read from that share point and copy to a share on the OMV server

    I may be wrong in this but I'm a little stumped

    I'm not sure of any http server running from it? All I know is it has its admin panel where I can adjust settings etc.
    I had a good look through the admin panel just now and can't find anything.

    So...assuming I can change the port (I have this modem https://support.netcommwireles…-User-Guide-NC-R6B016.pdf )

    I can see the docs show this (image below). Do I just change the 80 to another number? Is there a recommended number to change this to? I'm a little confused as I wouldn't expect that the technodad video would expect people to change their modem/routers http port so maybe some info is missing in his video?

    Thanks for your time, I do appreciate it.

    Thank you for the reply. Watching his tutorials now and using your image (thanks for that). I apply the settings as per your link and get:

    this port 80 is used to the Broadband Router HTTP server, Please choose other port.

    I'm .... stumped on what to do here. Should I research changing my router's port from 80 to something else? If I do that, will it affect any of my other setup services etc? I am a little hesitant here as I'm getting a little out of my depth (but this is how we learn I guess)

    Hi all,

    I'm following the techno dad video and I'm at this point:

    I've logged into my router
    Instructions for the router are here: https://support.netcommwireles…orwarding-Setup-Guide.pdf

    This is what my screen looks like below:. I'm completely stumped as to what to put in there. Techodad says to put a specific IP in, but where did he get that? Is mine different? I have no idea what my interface is meant to look like compared to his also.

    I'm sorry for the questions that for many of you will seem stupid but I've not done this kind of thing before and any advice would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hi all,

    We would like to centralise all our little snippets that we require (cron jobs, tool instructions, etc etc) in case of emergency / key staff on holiday we then have it all in one location that other team members can get access to.

    What is the best way to get a wiki or equivalent on our OMV that the team can access when at the office?

    Thanks a tonne.

    Hi all,

    I'm doing some development with Python and want to server up to the internet with Flask. I have a server sitting here running OMV and I'm thinking, rather than purchasing a rasberry pi or a nuc, can I have my OMV server perform this task?

    thanks a tonne...

    Hi all,

    I had OMV installed, working well, then my USB stick that the OS was on started to fill up.
    So I purchased a new m.2 SSD, put it in a USB enclosure, installed OMV onto it and started it all up again.
    Found my RAID devices, mounted them. All is looking good! Added my user/s. Nice!

    Now I'm up to the part where I have to add my Shared Folders. But I already HAD them, I don't remember their names, and I want to put them in the same I'm assuming, so the folders match and all my old data re-appears.

    How can I go about this? Any help greatly appreciated.
