    Little update. I tried a lot with the 5.4 Kernel. I tested Bionic and Buster, but both got the problem above. Then I made a post in the armbian forum and one guy told me to switch back to the 4.4 Kernel and look there, it is working!

    The problem of the 4.4 Kernel was for me, that plex videos in a docker container want play longer than 5 minutes with direct play. The best solution was to switch over to embyn, that solved my subtitle problem too ;)


    Try to disable automatic media scans and so on in plex

    It's diseabled. When there is something new, I can scan by myself.


    Get a SSD?

    I think this is the best option here.

    Thanks man!


    I am using OMV 5.3.9-1 on a Nanopi M4 with 2x 4TB Seageate Ironwolf HDD.

    Currently, I am using a folder on one of my HDD to save my docker configs (Plex, Home Assistant, etc), but the problem is,

    that the harddrive go into spin down and after some minutes he goes back to normal. The reason is that the services writing the logs on the harddrive.

    So is this smart to save this on the harddrive or it is better to move this to the free space on the SD-Card?


    Todays night, my server crashed again, then was no access over SSH/Webgui/other server services. After a restart, the logs getting spammed again, but this time with:


    I am running a Nanopi M4v2 with OMV 5.3.9-1 (Usul) and my syslog getting crammed with:

    Mar 31 21:27:06 nanopim4v2 brcm_patchram_plus_rk3399[1134]: writing
    Mar 31 21:27:06 nanopim4v2 brcm_patchram_plus_rk3399[1134]: 01 03 0c 00

    Why is this happening? Is there a error

    I cut down the syslog.txt down, because it was over 20.000 lines long after 5 hours with this message above.

    I am running a Nanopi M4v2 with Satahat and 2x 4Tb Seagate Ironwolf HDD. Powersupply: meanwell lrs-75-12 (75W, 6A, 12V DC)

    I followed the introduction here and used a new SanDisk Ultra 64gb with the latest Armbian 5. But sometimes the server is restarting or shutdown without reason. When I look in the syslog, I don't know for what I am searching. (The 3 latest syslog's on Drive, because there are to big for the attachments)

    At the moment I use the Nanopi as NAS with Plex, rsync my 1st to 2nd HDD and as a test Home Assistent. In the future it should replace my raspberry pi, but with the random restart it would be bad.

    I am logging the CPU usage/temperature and ram usage, but before the restart time, everything looks good. Same with power consumption.

    It is possible he lost the connection to the router? Because the LED's are still blinking.



    I installed on my Nanopi M4v2 openmediavault from this Guide (on armbian buster server 5.4). But when I try the defaultuser "admin" and the password "openmediavault" I got an error message "Incorrect username or password.".

    I changed the root-password to a password without punctuation mark. And I created on armbian user with the name admin and a password, but this password isn't working too. I clear the cache from my browser and tried this on firefox and chrome.
    Reinstalled armbian, but same error.

    I am a linux beginner, so I don't know a lot about the permissions and error messages under linux.

    And which version is the installingbash from the guide installing? 4.x or 5.x?

    I hope there is a solution!


    So, I saw this build here in this forum and I slept over it and my conclusion is, I want to do it like this. With a NanoPi M4 and SATA-hat.
    But, I have some question, it is smart to use a SD-card for the OS, because there is an option to use a eMMC Module and frauhottelmann is using a SSD instead.

    What is smarter a 2GB or 4GB board? I would use OMV, in Docker: Home Assistant with all my Plugins, Plex, Nextcloud and what the future is bringing ;)

    There is a NanoPi M4v2, this one got 4GB LPDDR4 Ram and coast 5$ less than a v1 4GB, when it comes to a 4GB board, is this the right choice?

    Thanks for the idea and the help ;)

    If you are referring to the ones where you can put in 2 drives and they have their own raid controller, these have been designed for Windows, will it work on Linux, technically yes, but the raid option will not, they will be seen as 2 drives. But using something like that you are restricted by the USB throughput, better to have 2 separate drives, USB3.

    I mean two of this , its like a external Harddrive-case.

    I have my RPi4 in a flirc case and it helps the temps but I don't think the RPi4 should be the first choice for a NAS. I have a lot of SBC boards and I would still pick the Nano Pi M4 with sata hat over all the others.

    Never heard of this board before, but it looks like it is perfekt for a NAS-System! I'll think again.

    But big thanks to everyone here!

    :) The answer is in my signature, but setting up a raid on usb is simply a bad idea.

    you got me ;)

    Use 2 USB3 powered drives, use one for your data and the other to run rsync to copy your data from the first drive, that way if one drive fails it's easy to recover. Rsync can be run as a scheduled job overnight and you set it to receive emails

    I will try it!

    And for my plan, the Rpi4 is the way to go. With 2x 3.5"HDD in a USB3-Case?

    Why? this comes up quite a lot but what do you know or understand about a raid setup that is simply a 'must have' for a home user.

    To back up my data automatically? Is there another way to back up all data? I am open to everything!

    Hello OMV-Community,

    I use OMV 4 on a Raspberry Pi 3b+ with 2 USB-Stick for personal data (~80GB) and a 2TB HDD for media (~1TB of music, videos, pictures). I use the in build Plex addon and in the built in docker I am running my smarthome (Home Assistant, Mosquitto, etc).

    But now I want to upgrade this "NAS", one reason is, when one of the storage dies, its gone. I do backup of my personal data every 2-XX weeks ( :whistling: ) and this is to risky for me, now.

    What I want?
    I don't know so much over NAS-Systems, but what I know for I backup I need a RAID 1 to mirror on storage. I want my Personal Data and my media on one Storage (3-4TB HDD) for RAID 1 backup.

    What is the best system for this?
    The Raspberry Pi 4 got USB 3.0, so it is smart to put 2x 3-4TB NAS-HDD on this USB-Ports? Or is a mini-ITX build the way to go?
    I don't really have a price limit, but it should be not to expensiv :D
