    I created an ansible user and have issues copying the ssh key using ssh-copy-id from control to my omv server. I know the password is right and PasswordAuthentication is set to "yes". I made the same changes w/ my pihole server and it works fine there. I even manually added the key to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys and I'm not able to ssh to ansible@omv server. What's the issue?


    I manually copied the contents from /etc/letsencrypt/live/<>/<em>fullchain,privkey</em>.pem from my pihole server to /etc/ssl/certificates/openmediavault-<uuid>.cert and /etc/ssl/private/openmediavault-<uuid>.key on my OMV5 server as mentioned here and I am able to get the cert working on the OMV UI. I want to spin up letsencrypt docker container to do the cert renewal from the OMV5 server and then copy it over to /etc/ssl/certificates/openmediavault-<uuid>.cert and /etc/ssl/private/openmediavault-<uuid>.key on the OMV5 server host. Any guides or tutorial on how to do this w/ letsencrypt docker, cloudflare DNS, and OMV5?

    I have a letsencrypt wildcard cert being renewed from my pihole server using certbot.

    In /etc/letsencrypt/live/ on the pihole server, I have these files:





    Which files do I need to copy over to OMV5 server from the pihole server to enable SSL?

    I'm assuming I'll need to copy to these two files /etc/ssl/private/openmediavault.key, /etc/ssl/certs/openmediavault.crt on the OMV5 server but I'm not sure which pem file from the /etc/letsencrypt/live/ to copy and whether I need to convert the pem files to .key and .crt or just a rename?

    I have OMV5 installed on my Raspberry Pi 4 and I'm trying to create a filesystem on my SSD drive connected to the USB3.0 port (/dev/sda). Every time when I try to create an ext4 filesystem, it stops at 1882/15262. I'd like to try from the command prompt to see if it works. What would be the equivalent to the options from GUI Storage -> File Systems -> Create -> /dev/sda, ext4?

    I can't seem to follow this tutorial for OMV5 -

    I pulled the linuxserver/letsencrypt image on portainer on OMV5 but not sure what to do next. The tutorial from that video configures the settings from services/docker but I don't see that in OMV5. Is there a tutorial/guide for setting up letsencrypt on OMV5 + portainer or docker?

    Thanks. This worked for me, although the user interface doesn't show the ip6 address when set to auto. I also had to run 'sudo systemctl disable dhcpcd' to disable dhcpcd as I was getting two network interfaces and IP addresses. 1 static IP from /etc/system.d/network and the other from /etc/dhcpcd.conf

    On Raspberry Pi 4B

    I'm using 2x Micron 1300 2TB SATA SSD drives. How do I know to how to configure Advanced Power Management, Automatic Acoustic Management, Spindown time in the Physical disk properties? If I am unsure is it safe to enable and see if it works?

    I have OMV 5.x installed on my Raspberry Pi 4B and I assigned a static IP to eth0 on the Interface tab on the Network page on OMV and now I have two IPs assigned to eth0. One is the static IP ( and one I'm assuming is from DHCP ( Is there any reason to have two IPs for eth0 or can I remove the How would I remove it? I checked /etc/dhcpcd.conf and there are no interface eth0 entries in there.

    I used this image for my Raspberry Pi 4B and I notice it uses Armbian which I never heard of. All my other Pis use Raspbian and I'd like to keep it the same so it can be consistent w/ updates and packages as I'd like to eventually use Ansible to manage my devices.
    Is there any particular advantages of OMV on Armbian?
    Would it run just as well if I flash Raspbian and then manually install OMV?
