    I am fairly sure that only if the system disk is full there will be problems logging in. How full the other disks are shouldn't matter, at least not for logging in. But if you can move some files around and free up some space on all disks it wouldn't hurt.

    good morning and thank you very much for pointing me to the solution.

    I turned off all the HDDs from the power supply, I only left the SSD with OMV4 active.

    it didn't let me connect to the WebGUI even with all HDDs disconnected.

    So I used the USB key with the software to partition the HDDs, from there I found that the SDD had 20GB occupied for the whole. I had left 35GB unallocated.

    So I made a whole 55GB partition.

    I rebooted and everything started working.

    question: why the 8GB of OMV4 became 20GB?

    I never put any FILES on this SSD.

    Does OMV4 create temporary files and overload the space where it is installed?

    That should be more than enough free space to allow login. I don't know what else could be preventing it.

    I also check the other HDDs and I hope to find the problem. I have a question OMV I installed it in an SSD but the files I use are on other 5 different HDDs, but if one of these is full, the WebGUI crashes anyway?

    login doesn't work

    If I log in from WebGUI with user and password it does not let me enter the OMV interface. it always brings me back to login. it doesn't give me any kind of error

    please ask for help

    it has always worked for months, today it doesn't let me enter the interface anymore

    buongiorno ho un grosso problema dal browser non riesco ad entrare nella home page di OMV non capisco il perche. ci sono sempre entrato e ho configurato tutte le cartelle e gli utanti ma oggi quando metto user e password fa il loginma invece di entrare, mi ritorna la paggina del login

    perfavore vi chiedo aiuto....

    You are taking what could be one line of shell code and turning it into I do not know what.

    Sorry, but if you want to continue on the path you are on now I can't help you.

    After reducing the size of the HDD partition, I connected the SSD to the machine's motherboard and restarted the machine in the Clonezilla utility, entered the Bash shell interface and checked both the disk partition table and the dimensions using the following commands.

    # fdisk -l /dev/sda

    # fdisk -l /dev /sdb

    here I have taken note of the position of the disks

    sda 64GB SSD sdb HDD 320GB

    then I entered the dd command

    # dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1

    After cloning the MBR, I ran the fdisk -l command again to check if the partition table matches on both disks.

    I quit the Bash shell

    with the exit command

    Now, that's all right, I started the Clonezilla utility, I selected the device-device mode, run the wizard for beginners and select the part-to-local_part cloning option.

    I chose the first local partition from the list (sdb1 - System Reserved) as the source and I pressed the Enter key to continue.

    So, I chose the local destination partition, which will be the first partition from the second disk, (sda1) and I hit the Enter key to continue.

    In the next screen I chose Ignore check/repair file system and I pressed the Enter key again to continue.

    Finally, I hit the Enter key again to continue and I twice answered with yes (y) to accept the warnings and start the cloning process.

    when it was finished I turned it off I removed the HDD physically from the PC,

    and I booted with SSD and it worked perfectly

    Thank you so much gderf for making me reason, on all the steps to do

    I can make no sense of them.

    OK I'll explain them in detail

    From OMV Boot into CloneZilla

    enter on Enter_Shell> CMD

    in the shell I type (sudo su)

    then type (fdisk -l)

    check how the discs are indicated

    sdb 320GB sda 64GB

    then type the DD command

    (dd if = / dev / sdb of = / dev / sda bs = 512 count = 1)


    Boot into CloneZilla

    enter on Enter_Shell> CMD

    I write (sui ^ c) send and type (sudo su) and again (fdisk -l)

    I check the screen if everything is ok

    and finally (fdisk / de ^ c) then exit again exit

    start clonezilla

    send on "device-device mode"

    then on "beginner"

    below on "part_to_local_part"

    I select HDD sdb1 as source, SSD sda1 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice


    device-device mode



    sdb2 as source

    sda2 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice

    Remove CloneZilla


    I hope it all works out

    you understand now?

    Exactly what are you expecting to happen when you run that dd command?

    I did this:

    Boot into CloneZilla

    Enter Shell

    sudo su

    fdisk -l (to ensure disks)

    then if I understand I have to do this

    dd if = / dev / sdb of = / dev / sda bs = 512 count = 1 (to detect partitions)


    Boot into CloneZilla

    device-device mode



    sdb1 as source

    sda1 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice


    device-device mode



    sdb2 as source

    sda2 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice

    Remove CloneZilla



    I believe these are the steps


    I have documented myself

    and I understand that

    dd if = $ input_data of = $ output_data [options] Drive-to-drive duplication

    in my case I have the source (320GB sdb)

    the destination (sda 64GB)

    so the cloning command is:

    dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1 (to detect partitions)

    all this I do from the clonezilla shell

    Did I understand well?

    Be careful when you are logged in as the root user. root has full control over everything and there is little if any protection from making mistakes that can have major consequences up to and including destroying the operating system.

    Read and try to understand the dd man page and/or google for information on how to use dd to duplicate disks. There are many sources for this information.

    Pay particular attention to matters concerning being absolutely positively sure about the device you choose to be the output of the dd command. There is no sanity checking, no popup warnings, no "Are you sure Y/n? prompts, etc.

    dd shows no mercy. The output device will be completely overwritten with no possibility of recovery. If you chose the wrong disk as the destination, too bad so sad.

    I am going to clone the large sized disk

    so you don't miss the OMV system

    I have another hard drive of the same size

    so first clone it with clonezilla

    then I try to transfer to small SSD

    I would use dd to copy the disk. It will fail once the 64GB drive is filled up, but it's likely that it was copying empty space at failure, so the copy should be fine. You have nothing to lose by trying.

    I don't know how to use dd to copy

    do you have any links, where does it explain how to do it, or a tutorial?

    Greetings to all of you

    I have a problem

    I would like to clone the 320GB hard drive where I installed OMV4

    on a 64GB SSD

    320GB HDD> 64GB SSD

    OMV is on a 20GB partition with 3.99 Linux swaps

    the rest of the disk is unallocated

    I tried with clonezilla and other software, but I can't clone the disk. if I clone only the partition, the Boot does not work

    do you have a solution?
