Edit: sorry wrong thread
I simply use it to connect an external DIY box via the N54L esata port (it can address 5 external hard drives).
The port multiplier costs 25$, a Pci sata controller with 5 sata ports costs way much more.
The way I use it, make off-site backups, the port multiplier is perfect even if the performance are not so good.
In my opinion the BananaPi with a sata port supporting the port multiplier, would be a perfect OMV low energy nas.
Thank you very much, now I have understood the problem (at least on my own machines, I don't know if there is a bug in OMV).
To reproduce the problem on my systems:
- connect external hard drive.
- on the webgui -> Storage -> File Systems
- push the button "Mount"
- push the button "Unmount" (in config.xml the section of the unmounted hard drive disappears)
- push (again) the button "Mount" (in config.xml the section of the unmounted hard drive reappears with "hidden" = 1)
After pushing the "Mount" button I have the error message.
If I edit che config.xml changing the "hidden" value from 1 to 0 then I can push the yellow "Apply" button without the error message. Now the hard drive is mounted correctly.
Thanks again Solo.
I have tested both my OMV boxes and I have always this error:Code
I tested both my machines:
omv-mkconf fstab + reboot -> error
omv-mkconf fstab + mount -a -> error
omv-mkconf fstab + reboot + mount -a -> error
The only way to mount my two backup hard drives is booting the machines with Parted Magic.
Edit: Modified directly the fstab file adding this string:
Now the hard drive is mounted
I have the same problem when I try to mount an external hard drive to make my weekly off-site backup (I have tried to connect via esata and via usb)
Here my code from "support info"
Thank you in advance for your help.
I don't know if this is the right thread, I have found a similar thread here
It would be possible change the default proportional font (ie: Times New Roman) to a not proportional/monospaced font (ie: Lucida Console) ?
Thanks in advance.
As always, thanks
Ho visto solo adesso il thread...
Ci sono anch'io, ciao a tutti
On my main OMV box I have 2x4Tb WD Reds.
For my next 2x4Tb drives I will buy a Seagate NAS drive and a HGST drive.
A no-brainer choice then...
The only reason to buy an enterprise drive is the 5yr warranty...
Just 791,70 Euros
Even in euro it remains a ridiculous price
It could be possible instead of using a "string" sort to use a "number" sort for the %CPU column ?
I've managed to define my installation:
- Asrock Q1900-ITX
- be quiet! Pure Power L8-<b>350W</b> -> I think 350W are enough for this MOBO + 4 hdd + 2xRAM + PCIe + etherneth
- 2 x Corsair Ddr3 1333Mhz 4Gb 204 Sodimm
- DeLOCK 95233 -> Mini PCIE to 2x SATA 3, I'll…
Good setup, very interesting the DeLOCK 95233. I had no idea that there were this type of adapter, thanks
Just my 2 cents...
I would buy 3x4Tb HDD (one WD red, one Seagate Nas and one HGST NAS)
If you will use the drives in RAID/SnapRAID you can buy another 4Tb drive later and expand the filesystem.
Per esperienza personale ti consiglio di non prendere tutti i dischi della stessa marca/modello...
Thanks for the clarification.
I only have a superficial knowledge of the kernel/backport kernel.
I need to study much more
On kernel.org site the latest stable is 3.16.3
In the future OMV Extras will be upgraded to 3.16.3 backport kernel ?
I am just curious, the latest 3.16.2 backport kernel is working great on both my OMV machines.
