    Ok thx - I ran all the three command in that order.

    For the benefit of others, command "omv-salt stage run prepare" takes some time and command "omv-salt stage run deploy" takes considerable more time than prepare. Your mileage might vary. Prepare and Deploy did spit out messages and from the look of it looks fine to me. Here is a tail of deploy command.


    DEPLOY

    As per docs (at last I read it :-)) It says to run these commands. Should I run ALL the 3 commands or only the

    To apply the custom settings you need to execute the following commands as root:

    Code
    # monit restart omv-engined
    # omv-salt stage run prepare
    # omv-salt stage run deploy

    Hi this does not seem to work OR am I doing something wrong?


    Here is my env variable value:


    Code
    root@hpomv:~# omv-env get OMV_MONIT_SERVICE_FILESYSTEM_SPACEUSAGE
    OMV_MONIT_SERVICE_FILESYSTEM_SPACEUSAGE=97


    And here is the email I get as notification:



    Here is my omv screenshot

    As you can see the disk is 95% full but I did set the env variable to 97!!



    Question votdev. The following code returns nothing - hence my assumption is this env variable is not set.


    Code
    omv-env get OMV_MONIT_SERVICE_FILESYSTEM_SPACEUSAGE


    If I want to set this variable to say 97% then is this the correct syntax? Does this apply to ALL mounted disks?


    Code
    omv-env set OMV_MONIT_SERVICE_FILESYSTEM_SPACEUSAGE "97"

    This is what I do in windows PC which works..


    1. Switch off the OMV - yes I am not 24x7

    2. remove USB

    3. Use win32diskimager (google it) and make a backup and call it omv.img (*.img is essential)

    4. Use balena Etcher (google it) and image the omv.img to a USB equal or greater than the one I backup up (in case the USB is smaller the etcher will complain)


    Swap the USB and check if this works and in my case it works

    Hi, some of the routers allow you to backup your configuration. This helps if you have completely new router (off course same name and brand) you can restore your configuration from the backup.


    Is there something similar with OMV?

    Hi, In the GUI under rsync > extra options, I entered the following for excluding certain 'folders' but it does'nt seem to work. any help would be appreciated: (I tried one at a time as well)


    Code
    --exclude='#recycle' --exclude='@eaDir' --exclude='My Documents'
    Tried
    --exclude={'#recycle','@eaDir'}
    Tried
    --exclude='#recycle'
    Tried
    --exclude #recycle

    Success!


    Documenting what I did to help others:


    1. Burned ISO into CD

    2. Formatted USB stick 16 GB using software https://openmediavault.readthe…rsync#verify-the-download

    3. inserted the CD and the USB stick into the INTERNAL USB socket

    4. Ensured the boot order is (1) CD and then (2) INTERNAL USB (press F10 to get to boot menu)

    5. The installation began.........

    6. once the kernels and partition was done in USB the screenshot says to MANUALLY reboot - ensure the CD and USB are in the server

    7. Once reboot, the installation began where it left of into the USB stick and the system ejected the CD - REMOVED CD

    8. Booted from USB - all clear


    Thanks

    I am trying to install openmediavault_5.5.11-amd64.ISO in this server.

    Burned a CD and was able to install OMV in one of the disk enclosures.

    I really want to install OMV on a USB stick BUT I am unsuccessful!

    This server has a INTERNAL USB. I formatted the USB as EXT4 using AMOEI. I inserted the CD and stuck the USB stick.

    The installation goes fine until the OMV tries to partition the USB stick to EXT4 and partition fails. Why? Any tips. I really want to install in USB so that I can use all the 4 drive enclosures.

    Here is the message I get:


    FAILED TO CREATE A FILE SYSTEM

    The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI7 (0,0,0) (sda) failed


    I tried removing all partition in USB and I get the same result. Is there some kind of trick to install in USB? I tried writing the ISO directly into USB and installing from USB. The installation is going fine but once the installation tries to write into USB it fails.

    Hi Agricola, Thx.

    I am already using old Gateway PC as OMV - I am really looking for NAS form factor with removable drives. Best case scenario is to buy intel based NAS in ebay and flash OMV.

    I would welcome experiences from others in converting NAS to OMV
