    With a monitor plugged into OMV server, just after the login prompt, an error message appears:

    firmware: failed to load rtl_nic/rtl8125a-3.fw (-2)

    OMV 5 has linux kernel 5.4 which is supposed to support the RTL8125 (2.5 Gbps ethernet chip)

    the same card works in another linux distro with kernel 5.5

    I used OMV some years ago, and just tried a new installation. I have NFS service running and shared 2 disks on the server.

    on client, showmount -e sees the following:

    Export list for




    then I try to mount something:

    mount -t nfs nas1

    but after a while it compains

    mount.nfs: Connection timed out

    whatever mount options I try, same error

    the client is Centos 6

    I wish to run an NAS connected to 3 workstations on private network (no connection to internet, TV or other frippery). So can I plug each into a NIC on OMV and have it listen and serve each independently? I am not talking about pairing links for more speed.

    The reason is that it is hard to find suitable small multigig network switches, retailers telling me 7 weeks delivery due to COVID-19. I can find used 10 Gbps NICs, but not used switches either. It happens that I have a bunch of 2.5 Gbps ethernet cards that I bought before the virus hit. So I can stick them into the NAS and OMV has new kernel that supports them.
