    any update yet?

    I was looking at the yamj web page and it seems like the same app i use for windows 7 media center, it's called yammm (yet another meta data manager) but it's develpoment has died but still works.

    But having yamj running on omv would seem more practical.

    Maybe someone down the road could make a plugin to set this up?

    Just got my omv setup and am a little nervous to mess with installing this and causing issue's.

    I must first say setting up the mail alerts in the beginning is helpful in finding or knowing of issue's.

    My question or request is can we change the message content?

    here's an email i get;
    Resource limit succeeded Service localhost

    Date: Tue, 14 Aug 2012 17:30:25 -0400
    Action: alert
    Host: Media-Box
    Description: 'localhost' loadavg(1min) check succeeded [current loadavg(1min)=4.0]

    Your faithful employee,

    What I would like to do is change;
    Your faithful employee,

    To something more personal.

    I have to disagree. It is possible to share a drive at root level. When adding a share you should choose a backslash for path: '/'. This gives you the entire disk.
    Hope this helps.


    I was about to say the same thing, then i read your post.
    Took me a bit of fiddling to figure out sharing drives and folders in a windows environment.

    I too have transmission setup with two folders and am not sure if i understand your query?
    but I will provide what i have done and maybe it might help.
    I have my torrents set to stop seeding after the ratio hits 2.5. this way i can easily delte them ater they have stopped. so when transmission moves the files from incomplete to finished I then move them to the shared folder on OMV Videos (this is where i'm confused, is your movie share on your OMV and played with lets say an apple TV? or do you use something different to store your movies?).
    I move files through myt network all the time and can say the speed is not bad, average speed is about 80mb a second. it's about the same if it's from one share on OMV to another on OMV. I have also used rsync to move files from drives connected to my OMV and really don't save much time doing it this way as compared to just using a computer and doing it through my network.

    Not sure if my post will be any help or maybe just confused you more. either way if you have a question I'll try and help.

    Ok reinstalling was easy and getting back to where i was is done.
    but on start-up i still get the same message as above.

    maybe this will help, the system was running whs. i just put in the omv disk and installed (on first install).
    now on the second install i did get the screen that asked where to install, i chose my system drive (wd 250 gb) and did get the message about all my data would be erased. (on the first install i did not get that message). i went ahead and the boot process stops and gives me the options to enter my password for maintenance or ctrl d to continue.
    thank god i'm using a kvm and can actually see the boot messages.

    hope someone can shed a little light on my issue.

    Ok I just ran ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid, and from what i can see the error related to the uuid i have an issue with is not in the list shown by running ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid.
    How is this possible with a fresh install?

    Ok I installed omv on a 250 gig drive and have the system connected to my kvm, so when the system boots i get this error,
    /sbin/fsck.xfs: xfs file system.
    /sbin/fsck.xfs: xfs file system.
    /sbin/fsck.xfs: xfs file system.
    /sbin/fsck.xfs: uuid=kldsfgjlis-sfawefgaREW-Asgfsd-SGDFsg DOES NOT EXIST
    fsck died with exit 8 status

    file system check failed

    control-d terminate this shell or enter password for maintenance.

    so my system drive is ext4 and two other internal drives are xfs and i formated 3 usb drives to xfs.

    as my linux skills are limited I'm thinking of starting all over.
    unless the error above is familiar to someone and they can maybe help?


    Ok I restarted the system and windows can now see and open the share.

    now i have 2 asus oplays and they can see the share but fail to open it. i have tried to use the gui to reset the smb share, made sure all the settings in shared folders are right. still my media players wont open the share.
    now i have a share for the kids movies and it works great.

    is there a way to remove all the share properties and leave the data, to start all over?

    ok it's been a day now and all of a sudden one of my shares went crazy.

    I was no longer able to open it up in windows or any device, access denied.

    so i opened omv web page and went to look at the acl list and was presented with this error.

    Error #4000:
    exception 'OMVException' with message 'Failed to execute command 'sudo find '/media/fc1ae037-8a2e-4aa2-9ec1-e7d432b525ca/' -maxdepth 1 -type d -printf '%f

    Maybe someone with more experience can explain how i might be able to fix this?


    Ok If someone may have some advice on getting the shares to show in windows that would be great.

    I have set the privlidges and checked all the acl boxes and still no shares show in windows.

    I do however see the media-server in windows network, just no shares show up.

    Hope someone can shed some light.

    Hi all,

    Let me first say i have been playnig with linux for about 8 years and until about 1.5 years ago always had a linux box running.

    So when i decided to dump whs for a linux based media server, omv seemed liked a good choice.

    My specs are
    asus p5kc
    intel core 2 dua 3 ghz
    4 gigs ram, plus 3 tb of storage.

    Now the install went fine no issue's there.
    after install i updated and rebooted.
    i installed the plugins repository to get transmission.
    red text means i have solved my issue, now i nedd to find a help section for acl's.

    now here's where im stumped, i format my drives to xfs, i create a share for torrents and incomplete and watched. now wehn i go into transmission it appeared like transmission creates it's own. so i removed the ones i created in the share settings. now transmission says to make sure debian-transmission is added to the groups, i have tried to add a group but it seems to not add anything, so i figured i would try and add a debian-transmission user, but this seems to defeat the purpose of groups.

    so it seems like each plugin adds it own shares and the share settings under user rights adds it own shares. I was first under the impression the user rights management would let me click on the shares and make changes to all shares. if thats the case i have issue's.

    i have used the gui to setup smb and as per my experince the gui is not working for samba shares, can someone post a link to the command line smb setup and maybe a guide on how to run the smb setup from a cmd.

    solved with acl list, now off to find a guide about acl's

    Thanks for any and all help.
