    I am completly new to OMV (moved from debian 9.0 server). My idea was to move to a proper nas solution because really my debian server was an overkill considering I was mostly using plex and file sharing. I am not a Linux expert so I was looking for something simple.

    I am very pleased with the web console admin interface, the ease of creating RAID and Samba share ... but I am very suprised of the lack of support of plex. I believe most of the user who will look for distrib like OMV will expect out of the box plex support.

    Maybe developer can think of a way to make it transparent to user, something like a scipt that will install docker, create the docker user, download the plex image, create and map the correct directory .... I don't know if this is feasible but for sure that would be nice !

    Otherwise it might be a stupid question, but instead of a docker image and considering the base is Debian, would it be possible to simple do an apt-get install mediaplexserver ?

    Eventually after reboot of my server, I could delete the RAID using the web interface and I tried to recreate it using 3 HDDs.

    However, again I see 4 entries while I was expecting a single one (it is still building). Is this normal that it is displayed that way ? Is it the same for you ?

    Don't forget to update the packages first before starting over. The ISO is not up-to-date, but updating a system after installation is general procedure, right? ;-)

    of course, this is the first thing I tried but it did not work either...I had some error message and I had not a lot of time to investigate. Tonight, I will reboot my server and hopefully that will work. Otherwise I will try a first update / upgrade also from the CLI.

    Dear all,

    I freshly installed OMV 5.05 (was having debian Buster before but decided to go for a NAS solution this time).
    I am having trouble setuping my RAID 5, I wiped my 3x HDD (6 TB each) and then create the RAID 5.
    However in the RAID management I was expecting to see only 1 unit md0 but I see 4 (the main 1 plus 3 small md1, md2 and md3). I guess it might be because I clicked on apply before assembling was completed. Hence maybe it incorrectly wrote inside the mdadm.conf. But I am not 100% sure.
    Anyway, now my RAID 5 is created but not functioning because I can't create a file system on it. I also tried to delete it and start over, but it fails. Hence, I am planning to do it manually via ssh. It is Debian based, so I imagine it should be ok if I do it manually but I am not sure how much OMV customized the Debian base. Do you think it is feasible folloiwng a Debian tutorial? Any advice?

    Thank you in advance for your help.
