good to hear, please set status of this post to "resolved" and please change the title to indicate the root cause
I was not able to find hardly any web resources for OMV on ESXi - so it has taken me over a week just to get the VM started. Any chance you might be available privately in case I have any other setup issues?
how would private support help to overcome the lack of web resources for OMV on ESXi ?
OMV is an application created by volunteers for free, it would be great If the savings from using it (at least partially) would result in a sponsor grant to fund further development
website openmediavault-plugin-developers.github.io gives a 404 not found error.
Maybe a long obsolete package is installed that initially installed from there?
Below URL gives references to previous issues related to this website and might contain the needed hint to resolve it
Hm it just came up blank before.
maybe due to a temporary outage or slow response. Issue templates are in use for OMV since :
Update issue templates committed on Dec 16, 2020
Thanks for the new issue, would you mind to move the forum link to the section "
Reference to Forum
URL link to forum post"?
The first part until "Describe the bug" can be removed
Active/ instant Backup device after each setup step"? How can i get that?
manually using dd to "clone" one device completely to another.
Does that help? A Linux tutorial for dd might be a good reference
Opened a github issue. https://github.com/openmediavault/openmediavault/issues/1109
For good reasons a template for issue reports was created but not used for this case.
Volker usually refuses to read long forum threads.
May I suggest to close & reopen it using the template?
fixing a broken OS installation with unclear root cause is usually much more difficult & effort than performing a new installation.
I've tried it several times and never succeeded to fix a broken OS.
Maybe the OMV ISO image doesn't handle all specific aspects of this platform correctly. I'd assume HW support could be (partially) cut down due to size restrictions of ISO media.
With your result I'd recommend to use:
1) "Installation on Debian"
2) 2 high-quality USB sticks or small SSDs for the new installation in an Active/ instant Backup device after each setup step.
See https://openmediavault.readthe…/installation/on_usb.html and the related chapters "Installation on Debian"
Does this make sense?
as OMV is just an application running on Debian OS, maybe Debian 11 (with OMV6) would improve the situation.
I'd try Debian11 first from a CD or USB Live distribution (without upgrading your system)
I seem to remember a number of issues reported by owners of this motherboard.
I'd recommend to ask for vendor support.
issues reported in OMV forum for this board can be found via a site-specific internet search
I tried following the guide, but I can't get it to work
Would you want to share your attempt i.e in a github repository or as zip-Archive here?
We could then try to get it working together
I've seen this behavior on motherboards with defective ACPI configurations set by BIOS.
Is a BIOS update available for your board?
Could you share hardware details?
the link is in this threads post #11
Ah, this information was provided in another post only.
I'd suggest to outline the full details of HW, context and all issues encountered with the current Pi4 before we discuss potential solutions
Well a Pi4 saturates a 1Gbit wired network already, what benefits for a user (aka client) of a NAS do you expect by investing into a fast NAS server?
ATX power supply
From an overall energy efficiency view an ATX power supply wouldn't be the best option most likely.
Would you mind to share energy consumption figures and the technical details of this power supply?
