    Run omv-confdbadm migrate conf 5.2.0 from CLI.

    Should have run during some of the updates.

    Did you update to the latest version?

    After following your advice, I was able to uninstall the plugin. All updates completed successfully. I was able to install the nut plugin successfully, configure it in the UPS section, and apply the configuration without any snags.


    Thank you very much for your time and help!

    I installed the openmediavault-nut plugin but it didn't complete and several errors started appearing. Now apt upgrade fails because it first tries and fails to remove openmediavault-nut, with these errors:



    I've read thru the error but I'm really not sure what I'm looking for. Any help or pointers would be appreciated!


    Thank you

    Wow! Thanks for the fast response and great info.


    If referencing /sharedfolders/ causes problems, how should I reference directories in the mergerfs pool? For instance, telling a docker container where my ebooks are kept? I wanted to use the /sharedfolders/ paths for simplicity. When I made the mergerfs pool, I used the union filesystem plugin and it makes a strange string mount point that I can't define (via GUI). Can I define the mount point so it isn't /srv/hug3-l0ng-str1ng-0f-h3x?


    If the answer is to just use the long string, that's fine - it's not that many times to paste it.


    When I didn't use the GUI and made the mount point directly in /etc/fstab, the whole system failed to boot. I tried two different sets of options (and I wish I saved the exact lines to post) but they both caused the failure. The first time I used /srv/pool as the mount point, and the second time I used /mnt/pool. I had to pull the drive and use an external dock with another computer to remove the /etc/fstab entry and it booted up just fine after that. Per usual, it's likely my fault.


    The /etc/fstab entry was something like:

    Code
    /mnt/disk* /mnt/pool fuse.mergerfs direct_io,use_ino,allow_other,minfreespace=50G,fsname=mergerfs 0 0

    I'm sure there are very good reasons for discontinuing the /sharedfolders/ mounting behavior, and I'd rather learn how to do this right going forward.

    I have a fresh install of OMV 5 on an SSD, and 3 x 10TB HDD in the system. I've made a mergerfs pool out of 2x10, and the third is for parity with snapraid. Docker config directories will be kept on the root SSD.


    Problem: Shared Folders created via the web gui don't appear in the /sharedfolders/ directory. Searching through the various threads here and on reddit, I've tried troubleshooting the following:


    Mergerfs: an issue (I think was fixed) is regarding mounting the pool before the individual disks are mounted. I haven't had issues with mergerfs mounting, but to take the union filesystem out of the equation, I've tried creating the folders on a disk instead of the pool with no effect.


    I found a thread here about editing the "sharedfolders-xxx.mount" files in /etc/systemd/system/ but interestingly there are none. I suspect this is the problem, but why aren't they being generated?


    :/I don't know what to look at next for troubleshooting. Suggestions welcome!
