    Causa mancato download di tre ultimi file/componenti durante l'installazione (finale dei mirror) ho problemi negli aggiornamenti e nei plugins.

    Pare sia il file /etc/apt/sources.list che ho provato ad editare scopiazzando e leggendo alcuni post, senza successo.

    Erano arrivati messaggi circa la mancata installazione repository apt -get etc etc

    Comunque l'installazione (con internet presente) è andata a buon fine.

    Il tuo sources.list è così? Questo è il mio funzionante:

    Considera che ci potrebbero essere liste aggiuntive in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    Ok, thanks for the hint!

    But somehow I get along better with a "to do list" that I can go through step by step and tick off ;)

    I recommend getting general knowledge about Docker, like: its basics, Docker Compose, Portainer.

    You need to understand how docker works with volumes, networks, permissions and so on.

    From there is just a matter to build the right container based on your needs.

    I guessed your module could be controlled in such way, but hd-idle does not provide scripting functionality.

    Ask the current manatainer here.

    1. when checking the remote repo using "borg info 'ssh://user@remoteserver:port/backup/repo' I get the following message back "No key file for repository...found in.../backup/repo" is this an issue? I use the OMV webgui admin to perform the backup with the borgbackup plugin, and searched my system but cannot find a key file for the repo?

    Have you created the folder on the receiving server and initiated it from the plugin?
    When properly initiated the message will go away and the repo will be ready to accept backups.


    2. I use ztsd compression and noticed that the actual repo size on the remote server is smaller than the output from borg.

    Correct. ZTSD is very good and if you have data that can be compressed, it will be.
    You should periodically check your backups using the the check feature, it will ensure that data is backed up and safe.

    Ciao, non ci sono guide in italiano per questo.
    Dovrai imparare a usare Docker e i container per installare le principali applicazioni.

    Puoi fare riferimento a questo canale Youtube.

    Per gestire i file di sistema dal tuo PC Windows puoi usare WinSCP.


    Un'altra prova che ho fatto, da qui la mia domanda principale, è stata quella di spegnere il nas, scollegare fisicamente un'hard disk del raid per simularne la rottura e riaccenderlo per vedere che cosa accadeva, a questo punto però non "vedo" più il raid 5 nel menù gestione raid e di conseguenza non posso "selezionarlo" per farci le dovute procedure di ricostruzione con un'altro disco, mi dice che il disco che ho scollegato è mancante ma non potendo fare operazioni sul raid non riesco ad andare avanti nella ricostruzione, mentre le cartelle condivise su samba da altri pc le vedo comunque ma non sono più accessibili.

    Ciao Marcello, devi collegare un altro disco per poter fare operazioni o simulare la ricostruzione.

    Il RAID non può essere sistemato con un disco mancante.


    Ti consiglio di documentarti su SnapRAID, è una alternativa al RAID classico che permette più flessibilità e meno vincoli. È disponibile un plugin per OMV.

    Regarding RAID/redundancy/backup, I have a question: My idea was to set up snapRAID for redundancy and back up my data to an external hard drive, plus keep the most important data on my Google Drive. With 2 hard drives snapRAID is not an option, so I would just mirror the drive and once I get a third hard drive delete one and set up snapRAID. What are your suggestions on this? Would you set up mirroring (which is basically the same as RAID 1, am I right?) in OMV or in BIOS? Are there any differences there?


    Also, what is the common practice for occasionally backing up data to an external hard drive in OMV? Can this be done semi-automatically, or do I have to manually plug in a hard drive and perform the backup every now and then?

    If you want to use classic RAID don't use hardware RAID, but enable it in OMV GUI.

    I would still recommend snapRAID for added flexibility. With RAID you won't be able to add a third drive without reformatting, with snapRAID yes, by rebuilding the parity.


    Regarding backup to an external drive, there a perfect plugin called openmediavault-usbbackup.

    When configured just connect the external drive, he'll do the job and eject it for you when completed.

    You'd better do it this way (manually plugging/unplugging the drive) because is more secure to store the external drive away from the NAS, even if it's the same home.

    100% agree with you!

    Install fatrace and use this command


    nohup fatrace -t -o /path/to/a/log.log &


    Specify a log location on the system drive which is not supposed to sleep and run the command.


    It will run in the background; let it run for some hours without using the server.


    Then kill the process and open the file.

    Fatrace will record every access including system drive. Filter HDDs entries that start with /srv/dev-disk-by-label: you will see what files have been accessed and you'll guess which service accessed them.

    And how can I track down that service?

    It can be challenging and you'll need third party tools.


    How many disks do you have and where OMV is installed? What apps/docker/plugins have you installed?


    Note this is out of scope of the thread/guide.

    Hi, Sorry to ask a dumb question but do SSD's need to be spun down?

    No, they don't and simply don't have such feature, so don't worry about them.
