I just researched on max capacity of HDD on my MB, I noticed that my MB can hold 8 HDD and I have 4...
So for now I'm just going to add 2 more HDD, in Raid 6 it'd 6tb, bringing the total to ~15tb.
So now I need info on expanding Raid... lol
Thanks for the info
Thanks for the reply,
How would I know when the rebuilding finished?
I have 4 HDDs of 6tb each on Raid 6
I'm almost out of space, and I don't have room for more on my MB.
Is there a way I can replace the HDDs (1 by 1) to 10tb each without losing any data?
Thanks for the replies, I'll try the suggested
I finally got it to work!
After I played with the Docker a little bit, I removed it and reinstalled the plugin version
I don't know how or why, but it is working now...
Thanks for all your help
Do you see the clients in the GUI of Urbackup?
Yes, I did see.
But then I decided to remove the plugin and install it via Docker, now I don't get the error messages, but I can't get the client to connect...
Can you post the output of
ls -l <path>
Replace <path> with the path you entered in the GUI of Urbackup as backup location.
I see it did create 2 folders, but I still see the 2 errors...
root@storage:~# ls -l /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Storage/Backup/UrBackup/
drwxrwsr-x+ 2 root users 4096 Dec 14 12:01 clients
drwxrwsr-x+ 2 root users 4096 Dec 14 12:01 urbackup_tmp_files
I watched the video...
And on my Windows client status = No internet server configured
I think you have to check the permission on filesystem level.
But first try to replace /sharedfolders/ with the complete path. Something like /srv/dev-disk-by-label.....
And now I have another error:
(err_long_create_failed). No such file or directory (code: 2)
UrBackup Server has trouble storing files to backup storage with the maximum
file name length it was compiled with (max 255 bytes). There might be
issues when backing up files/folders with long file name.
Did you create the directory from CLI or in the GUI of OMV as shared folder?To create it as shared folder should be the way to go. Or change the ownership from CLI.
On my system owner is "urbackup" and group is "users"
I created a urbackup user in OMV
I have a shared folder /sharedfolders/Backup, I gave user urbackup R/W permission
I opened /sharedfolders/Backup folder in explorer and created a new folder urbackup
I use UrBackup. Can be installed as Docker or natively on Debian. On OMV4 there is also a plugin, which does almost the same as installation from CLI.
Thanks for the reply
I installed it as a plugin, I changed the backup directory to "/sharedfolders/Backup/UrBackup"
Now I have a "err_cannot_create_subdir" error
How do I set the user UrBackup runs under?
Is there a good backup Plugin/Docker with a Windows/Linux client that I can install on OMV4 that will schedule a backup of my files to my OMV, with version retention?
I see there is a lot of debate about HW vs SW in Raids
I decided to go with SW Raid6...
Thanks all for your input
Thanks for the info
For now I connected the HDDs into the MB, but I only have place for 6, I don't think it will be a problem for a long time...
I have Openmediavalt 4 with a MegaRAID SAS 2108 [Liberator] Raid card
The card sees my 4 drives
But the GUI doesn't see the drives
Plus, what is better, Hardware or Software Raid?
I'm new to Raid cards, any help will be appreciated
Thanks for all the replies, but I ended up reinstalling the OMV with version 4...
Now I don't have the problem, and all is good...
I have Docker installed...
