    Today , i needed to make changes to OMV but password/login is rejected. The thing is I didnt make any changes lately and it was working fine yesterday.

    I ssh'ed into raspberry pi and used omv-firstaid to changed the password , and the new password is rejected too. I checekl the disks , none of the disks are full, including boot disk.

    Another solution adviced was to use these commands , yet they didnt work either.

    usermod -a -G openmediavault-admin admin
    groupadd --system openmediavault-admin

    I'm using OMV on a Raspberry pi 3b+, with the latest updates applied.

    Apart from the web interface , device seems to work fine.

    Any ideas what the problem may be?

    Thank you for the quick response.

    this is what I get for the "systemctl status smbd.service"

    There is an error but any ideas about the cause?

    I'm using OMV5 on a Raspberry Pi 3b+ with Raspbian OS (latest updates applied). Two hard drives are connected to the Rp. Only one of them draws power , other is a self powered USB hard disk.
    Setup works flawlessly for a long time , then -probably after an update - I cant see the USB disk from other devices. Rp itself woks fine and it can read/write to the USB drives , so I'm assume the problem is the Samba server.

    I'm not sure what the problem may be. Any ideas where should I be checking first?

    That would be a staring point.

    Try to restart smbd and then check the journal for entries

    systemctl start smbd.service

    journalctl -u smbd.service

    journalctl returns this.

    any ideas?

    Isn't this common after the latest updates? we can't be the only ones effected.

    restarting the samba service didnt work on my side.

    I used

    sudo service smbd stop

    to stop


    sudo service smbd start

    to start but I'm getting an error


    Job for smbd.service failed because a fatal signal was delivered causing the control process to dump core.

    See "systemctl status smbd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.


    Any ideas what may be the problem ? It started after the latest updates.

    I have openmediavault installed on Raspbian with the latest updates, on a Raspberry Pi 3b+.

    Now I see that the new Portainer is released, 2.5.1 a few days ago. I can't upgrade to it using OMV.

    I always use the OMV web page and choose "install portainer " for updating but this time it returns this error. Any idea what may be the problem?

    OMV-Extras -> Kernel you should be able to change from the drop down

    and for that first "Enable backports" should be enabled first? but I get an error "Gateway Timeout" on that option. So I can't enable backports , I can't change the Kernel.

    I'm on the latest OMV4 (raspberry pi 3b+) . Any ideas what the problem may be?

    I'm running OWM4 on Raspbery Pi3b+ . I installed Pihole docker "Techno Dad Life"'s setup guide a few months ago and it was working fine. All of a sudden web interface doesn't load anymore. I didn't make any changes on the docker image. I deleted the Pihole docker image and downloaded , installed from the beginning with the same guides parameters and still OWM4 doesn't show any error but pihole web interface isn't loading. For some reason I can't delete the pihole folder that was created for pihole docker's configs , that's after I stopped the pihole instance and deleted the image.Tough I deleted all the files inside that folder before creating the new image. What's preventing me from deleting the folder?
    I don't have any clue what may be wrong and where should I be looking? Any idea where to check first?

    I'm going to ssh from my desktop computer to owm(rp3b+), if I use midnight commander to move a big file between two USB drives, do I have to keep the computer on until it finishes moving or can I turn the desktop off after I give the move order?

    I'm running OWM4 on Raspbery Pi3b+ . How do you install JupyterLab or Jupyter Notebook on OMV4? There seems to be docker for it (no step by step guide tough) . I see python is already installed in OWM4 but I need Anaconda distribution. Do I install this as docker or should this be install on the system via SSH ? Is there a recent guide for this?
