    thanks...

    @rycoaaron...

    "Why are you using the ip address instead of the system name? That is the purpose of dns."


    I had used ip address for web gui access. How to use system name? How to determine system name? What is system name?

    Hi, i just had a new xfinity router installed. I have access to files and shares via windows file browser but no access to omv using old ip address.

    Using win cli, i see that old ip addresses are not there. tested listed ips for browser access... does not work...


    Any ideas where to start. Cannot use putty with old ip addresses...


    thank you

    I did have a question about your 6 drives setup using snapraid. So if I understood correctly from another conversation, snapraid will only permanently persist changes when it is executed otherwise you can revert changes? Or perhaps I didn't get it at all? Could you explain snapraid and union?

    If i remember correctly, any deletions or changes will not be permanent until you "synch" to update your system. Union is for pooling and creating volumes that can be distributed to different drives , but accessed through one interface. Also, my understanding is that the union will distribute files to most empty disk. SO, in short, you don't have to go from disk to disk to find a file or directory, instead they are presented in one interface.

    Please consider I am not a linux pro in any fashion, i am a photographer and this OMV nas storage system offered me the easiest to use option for novices like me. So, my short explanations may be invalid, but for me this is the best option for a NAS system.

    And, this forum is FANTASTIC for any level of help you may need...

    I have two boxes with no raid cards, not needed, one w/16gb ram, the other with 24gb/ram, one with two cpus and one with one cpu. both hardware works with nothing stressed. No raid hardware because this is feature of the software.

    One config is raid five w/four drives, and the other is six drives using snapraid and union (ext4 files). Provides all benefits of zfs... drives are not stripped, and easily swapped out if fails...two parity drives and 4 data drives provides protection and no dead files...

    The raid five box is faster because of striping drives, providing fast content for video and photoshop work and the snapraid box is for files that are rarely accessed, deep storage for archiving.

    Both boxes are connected to usb backup drives for easy to use rsynch backups as needed,

    Overall, best webgui interface and remember the original freenas developer dropped that project and started OMV because he felt more options with debian>...

    Just an update...i had 133 gb of log files (syslog &daemon.log)...deleted older ones, was then able to use first-aid, running "apt-clean" "clear wbgui cache", then able to open admin web gui, then i disable clamd "on access scans" for all drives, which stopped continuous erros in both log files... Now back to normal operation...

    No need to re-install...deleted old syslog and daemon.log files that were total 133gb...the ran firstaid to "apt clean", "clear webgui cache", then able to access web gui, then turned off clam "on access scans"...this stopped continuous errors in both log file...

    Back to normal with no need to re-install!!!

    thnks for help... i have got to the log directory which has 133 gb folder size.

    The syslog shows virtually continuous errors from "monit"..


    monit[904]: Queued event file: unable to read event size -- end of file


    i do not know what that means...

    hi, my os drive is full from some glitych or something... no space on disk. This is omv 4, with snapraid, unionfs, ext4 drives both data and 2 parity drives.

    I can access system using putty, and see the shared directories from the network as well as "file commander" (?), but there is no gui interface. I also have a backup.

    I need advice on best practices and anticipated sequence of restoration and expectations.


    I gather from research in this forum that omv/snapraid can be re-installed using existing data disks. Will the new install simply mount the drives and recognize names, and whether they are data or parity drives, etc, using the original configurations?

    I understand that disconnecting data and parity disks during the omv install is recommended. Is snapraid then installed with no disks, after which the disks are reconnected? Or are the data disks connected prior to snapRaid installation. This system was flawless for three years but after I installed bitWarden, started to have multiple issues immediately and within a couple days the os disk was full. I assume from continuous error logging.

    Any info is appreciated.
