    I get timeout when trying to mount NFS share.

    How can I analyse the root cause of this issue?


    Can you please share the documentation of the bug with BTRFS on raw devices you are talking of?

    My understanding of a subvolume is that it appears as a folder in the "root" volume.
    However, I can use several mount options incl. compression which gives a difference to writing data into the folders directly.
    Can you confirm?

    What are these "little fancy setup" things you are talking about? Could you please specify?



    I can install openmediavault-subsonic with openmediavault 3.0.15, the dependencies don't call an error.
    However, after successfull installation the WebUI generates this error:
    Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory
    Fehler #0:
    exception 'OMV\Rpc\Exception' with message 'Failed to connect to socket: No such file or directory' in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/
    Stack trace:
    #0 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/proxy/ OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('System', 'getInformation', Array, Array, 3)
    #1 /var/www/openmediavault/rpc.php(46): OMV\Rpc\Proxy\Json->handle()
    #2 {main}

    Any idea what's causing this error?



    I have a single disk formatted with BTRFS.
    I'm not using GPT, instead I have created several subvolumes, e.g. @pictures, @downloads, ...

    The question is now, what is the optimal configuration for defining shared folders?

    Normally I would mount the subvolume @pictures to a single directory, e.g. /home/pictures. But this is not feasible in the WebUI.
    In the WebUI I can select the device + the directory @pictures representing the relevant subvolume @pictures.

    Any advice?



    for unknown reason I cannot logon to WebUI using user "admin".

    When I check the log /var/log/auth.log, there's an error message indicating the cause:
    "User 'admin' has been banned after 4 failed login attempts."

    I have tried to fix this issue by
    1. Change password in CLI "omv-firstaid"
    2. Run command "passwd admin" in console

    None of the actions taken solved the issue.

    When I try to change user in console I get this message:

    root@vm104-nas:~# su admin
    This account is currently not available.
    root@vm104-nas:~# pam_tally2 -u admin
    Login Failures Latest failure From
    admin 12 01/09/16 16:37:27 ::ffff:

    For your reference this is the logfile /var/log/auth.log filtered on "admin":

    How can I fix this issue?


    I managed to install Nginx from wheezy-backports repository.
    Before installation I created a backup of /etc/nginx and recovered this backup after the installation completed.

    Now I'm running updated Nginx binary with original configuration files in /etc/nginx.

    root@vm104-nas:~# nginx -v
    nginx version: nginx/1.6.2

    Hm... the problem is related to the dependency of package "nginx-common".
    However, I can neither remove this package nor update it.

    Wouldn't it make sense to decouple OpenMediaVault configuration files in Nginx from the common files provided by the Nginx package in order to allow the package update to a recent release.

    The update to latest Owncloud release is working.



    how can I update Nginx package to a stable release?

    I have created a repository list according to Nginx homepage:
    deb codename nginx
    deb-src codename nginx

    I could now install stable release 1.8:

    So, what prevents me from upgrading Nginx to release 1.8?



    In the meantime I have installed OMV 2.1.8 (Stone burner), but I still can't create a shared folder in Access Rights Management -> Shared Folders.

    When I open the screen for maintenance of shared folders in order to add one in the WebUI, I can't select any volume from the drop down menu because nothing is listed.
    Please review the attached screenshot for the relevant screen.

    In my scenario, I want to share the following local directories:

    What must I maintain in order to get a selection of volumes in the drop down menu?
