    I have an s1366 mobo lying unused with a L5640 6c/12t cpu that I'm planning to use to upgrade my OMV5 NAS.

    Since it's Linux based, is it plug and play pretty much after I have changed the motherboard?

    Boot up and connect disk by disk?

    Found this old thread:

    Replacing mobo. do I need to reinstall entire system?

    Is it still up to date?

    Does anyone have any suggestions what to do before I make this upgrade.

    I am grateful for any input.


    Thanks peca89 ! I've managed to manually edit the fstab file so ignore mounting the encrypted mergeFS array and then i am manually decrypting and mounting it from the dashboard menu. Since I seldom restarts my server I have no problem with it but I hope this gets fixed in the near future.

    I run into the same problem after having a perfectly working UnionFS without LUKS i readded the UnionFS and applied encryption and now it's not working. i've tried peca89's solution "noauto" but still it boots into rec.mode. Does this work with MergeFS instead? How do I get past the error?

    Thanks for your answer, here it is. I have followed the guide but changed transmission to Qbittorretn.

    Googling this error seems to indicate a problem with the kernel.

    Hi folks

    I am trying to follow TDL: and install NordVPN docker with Qbittorrent.

    When deploying stack (using swarm mode,3) it deploys without problems but looking through the logs shows this:

    "iptables v1.8.2 (legacy): can't initialize iptables table `filter': Permission denied (you must be root)

    Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded."

    The VPN service cannot connect because of this problem.

    My OMV5 is all updated and runnign without errors.

    Anyone has a clue what this is about? I have found a similiar problem on various other distros but not a solution on OMV5 (if it differs).


    *UPDATE* After a powershortage due to a storm last night the server now boots up in emergency mode so I reckon I have to reinstall it.

    I can't even start OMV-firstaid "command not found".

    Anyone got ideas?

    I found a thread with the similiar problem and followed the guide but after:

    systemctl start openmediavault-engined.service

    I get this error:

    Job for openmediavault-engined.service failed because the control process exited with error code.

    See "systemctl status openmediavault-engined.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

    The engined.service is running but "journalctl -xe" gives me an aoutput with losts af connection errors.

    No idea what to do now...

    Hi and thanks for your answer.

    Seems something broke the internet access, only from command prompt though. I tried restoring it with omv-firstaid but that didn't help.

    "W: Failed to fetch Could not resolve '' " and so on

    But..shouldn't the login work nonetheless?

    This is the error I get after reconfig in omv-firstaid:

    Configuring network interface. Please wait ...

    ERROR: Failed to connect /var/lib/openmediavault/engined.sock: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

    Hi all!

    I am a newbie, slowly learning the basics of Linux and OMV.

    After successfully upgrading OMV4 to 5 and following techdadlife instructions and other threads (newest installation script version) OMV is up and running but I have a few problems.

    I can't log in on the admin page, I get this error:

    Error #0:
    OMV\Rpc\Exception: Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/
    Stack trace:
    #0 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('UserMgmt', 'authUser', Array, Array, 2, true)

    #5 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc.php(45): OMV\Rpc\Proxy\Json->handle()
    #6 {main}

    Apart from these two issues, ALL my dockers, share and services are functioning as normal. I run Pi-hole, privoxy, Syncthing, folding@home and backups and more on my OMV.

    Login to the admin page and the issue to update the OMV installation fom Cockpit-docker is no longer functioning.

    I should say that the last part of the upgrade process gave me this error:

    THANKS TO ALL CONTRIBUTORS in the excellent OMV forum! It means a lot for people like myself. <3

    Hi everyone

    So, I came home after a month of travels and booted up my OMV 4 system (been switched off).
    It booted perfectly without problems but after logging in I realized that my user profile has been reset or something. I was greeted bt a "default" login screen (only users, openvpn and about choices) even though my dockers were running perfectly normal (Pi-hole, Cockpit, sonarr, MC, netstat, duckdns, synctrayzor and more).
    All of my accounts (and works as I login) are there but it doesn't show anything on the OMV webinterface as if it has been reset to defaults.
    I even could update the system via Cockpit but I cannot change the system since I don't have another way to do that like Portainer etc.

    What has has happened? I am an OMV rookie who has been using TDL and other forums to install my system but wihtout problems.
    I have no idea what to do.
    Open for advices
    Thanks a lot

    I have for the past month or so been setting up my own OMV server, much thanks to this forum and technolifedad and his videos.
    After installing unionfs and snapraid I couldn't access weblogin after reboot.
    The funny thing is that all services and plugins (Pi-hole, transmission, resiliosync, nextcloud and many more) is up and running although the webinterface is not accepting connections on either p20 or DDH p443.
    I AM NO EXPERT IN Linux! I know a bit from what i've learned and I-ve tried my best so far.Tried omv-firstaid to reset/redo the webinterface.
    It gave me an error while updating the config file:

    ERROR: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; nginx -t 2>&1' with exit code '1': nginx: [emerg] invalid number of arguments in "listen" directive in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/openmediavault-pxe:2
    nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

    I don't know what else to try. Next I am probably gonna restore an old backup via the plugin.
    if I have to do can I do that since I can't log on? Clonezilla? I used teh "dd" method for my backups.
    i am very grateful an answer, rather not reinstall =(

    Best regards from a frustrated Norwegian =)
