    Hi Lusteri, i'm looking to SSD caching too. Now i have my OMV 4.x on an old but robust HP DC77000 MT with 6GB of RAM, a 2.5" 160GB system disk, a RAID1 with 2X2TB, and i want to update it to 5.x.


    I have a unused 240GB SSD, 1 SATA3 pci-e controller (the HP is SATA2), and 1 Gigabit NIC. I'm thinking to put them in my existing NAS, and the main goal is to expedite my customers backups as well the restore of them. With the SSD Caching & dual Gigabit i think and i hope to bring my actual transfer rate from 120MB/s max to 200/240..


    All in all, if it doesn't work well i will have a faster reboot (for the few cases of rebooting neeeded, now the cycle neeeds 2 minutes...), and some SSD space to fiddle with :)


    Tomorrow i'll start, wish me luck ;)

    Hi all,


    after a lot of trying and searching for a solution i'm stuck! I can create a VM, but can't start it. this is the error message:

If it was, you can restart your domain by running: virsh --connect qemu:///system start devuan otherwise, please restart your installation.


    Any ideas?

    Ok, correct me if i'm wrong. In order to obtain a virtualization ambient, on my OMV machine I have to:


    - clone my baremetal OMV with clonezilla (today i just made and copied in several locations, and one HDD as spare)
    - install PMX in the bare metal
    - create a linux VM in PMX
    - restore the cloned image


    What are the possible caveats?

    I recommend using cockpit to manage KVM VMs - https://forum.openmediavault.o…?postID=189087#post189087


    Otherwise, I would virtualize OMV on proxmox or ESXi. 3GB of ram is pretty tight though.

    Thanks Ryecoaaron. But i don't want to virtualize OMV, but using it a as a base system to virtualize oher instances of linux, running one at the time, just for fiddling. I don't understand clearly if it's possible, though.

    Hi all,


    I have my OMV 4.X running smoothly as simple NAS/Rsync on an old HP desktop with 3GB RAM, and 2x2TB RAID 1. I want to use it to run some lightweight VM'S, mostly Linux distros so i could fiddle with them without the risks of doing it in the NAS directly. My other machine here is a Windows workstation, so i'm looking for a web-based admin console of the VM'S.


    I've tried the VirtualBox plugin, but no luck. After a lot of trying i think i want to try another solution, e.g. KVM, proxmox and similar.


    What are the current choices, with the last 4.x version?


    Thanks in advance!
