OK, found the solution in the Updates/Upgrades subforum....
I had the same problem. So finally got it working. ethtool shows speed 2500 Mpbs vroom vroom!
My guess is that they also won't have error checking?
Purple drives have the extra video streaming mode, which means continue on write error. However that is only enabled in video recorders. So in a PC, it behaves like any other drive.
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 192.168.0.6:
then I try to mount something:
mount -t nfs 184.108.40.206:/export/nas1 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.
