    Installed on a new USB-Stick about 4 Months ago, with Flash-Plugin enabled. So could be. But how come I can still boot, be it only into emergency mode?

    I mean I can reinstall everything, most of it is dockers anyway and nothing is stored on the USB-Stick. However, it would be nice to be sure that it's indeed the flash drive that's gone tits up and not something else (that maybe could be easily fixed).

    Any guidance on how to check?


    I've shutdown my Box via the web interface in order to move it physically. Now I've rebooted and the WebUI is not coming up.

    When connecting a Keyboard and Monitor to the box, it tells me that it's in emergency mode.

    After entering my root password (as prompted), I tried to reset the WebUI Cache and Port by using omv-firstaid.

    When doing so, the system tells me "ERROR: Failed to connect /var/lib/openmediavault/engined.sock: [Errno 2] no such file or directory

    I also tried to SSH from another PC, but the connection is refused.


    Hi Andrea - did you ever get your answer? Also: Have you been successful in setting up KVM on OMV?

    Portainer by itself is okay, i guess. I'd just prefer something integrated as opposed to another config-frontend (One for OMV, one for Docker, one for VMs, etc.). That's why I was looking at Cockpit. I've found the same online documentation (if you can call it that :D).

    TBH: This is what I loved when looking at UNRAID, it's a single web frontend for everything (that I want) including a nice app-store-like search function for dockers. On the other hand UNRAID is not free (90 USD for my current server size) and OMV has more options in the way of actual storage layout (UNRAID is always a single Snapraid-ish array + one Cache pool). That's why I am looking at OMV right now. So maybe I am a bit spoiled right now when it comes to the Web frontend.

    I guess by:


    Yes I know, thats probably the solution any of us wants to use[...]

    you mean that it is probably NOT the solution any of us wants to use? :)

    Cheers everyone,

    I am currently in the process of setting up my new NAS/Homeserver. I want to run some dockers on it, including traefik as a reverse proxy. For that to work I need to add labels to my containers. I can do that with portainer, i know, but tbh i am not a big fan of the tool. Coming from a recent Unraid trial setup, i was looking for a more integrated solution so Cockpit has a certain appeal. Unfortunately, i don't see options for Labels when setting up a container (see attached screenshot). Am I missing something or is Cockpit really not able to use Labels?
