    Sorted...


    Don’t know how removed nfs and went back to SMB.


    Created a anon allowed smb share and it worked 1st time, added a new user/pass, added r/W to that share and made private to take off the anon allowed.


    Changed settings on daphile and worked 1st time.


    I defo did same yesterday a few times so zero clue why working today.

    Trying to get daphile to see an NFS share.


    Tried all day to get smb to work but heard daphile used an old version so thought would try NFS and getting zero joy.


    Daphile asks for Server/share and tried all sorts of combos of server/share server/drv/path and not got a single success.


    Tried re-setting up share so am sure anon has write access and still haven’t had a successful connection.


    Been looking at documentation, manuals, guide and doing all kinds of searches but still not a clue what I am doing wrong.


    Anyone got any ideas what I can do or check.


    Thanks a million

    Tried to install by the download and get can’t resolve Debian.org. Tried the wget command and get can’t resolve GitHub.com.


    I have pinged 8.8.8.8 and get a ping fine. Checked network config in web interface and dns appears to be ok but obviously I suspect the issue is somewhere with DNS. I tried adding 8.8.8.8 to my routers ip, also tried putting 8.8.8.8 first then router ip and still got same can’t resolve.


    Anything I can test or check so can get extras installed. Many thanks

    Found issue,


    Resolv.conf is set as 192.168.1.1 (old router) even though I have 8.8.8.8 and 192.168.0.1 set in web interface)

    On speed tests the 4tb 5400rpm drives I have show avg sustained write speed of 145MB/sec so is there a reason it should be so low as 39-42MB/sec building a mirror raid?


    Surely even sata II shouldn’t be constraining it that badly.


    Like I say just wondering really

    No I haven’t used mdadm before but looking about 40MB/sec seemed slow for creating a mirrored array in software. But if answer is it’s not that slow then I am happy. Enquiry answered. Mainly trying to find out if that’s reasonable and only if it isn’t try and figure out why it’s slow.

    Yes I did consider reading and done a few searches here and generally in google but couldn’t find much except examples of how long arrays take to set up (though most seem to use much faster speeds for hdd write to estimate time to finish).


    I am happy with my choice of 2 sets of mirrored drives for moment.

    Hi,


    New to open media vault, I have an old tranquil BBS which has I believe has a silicon image sil3124 Sata card in it. It’s a sata ii card supposed to be capable of 3Gbps


    I had a 2tb drive and recently bought 2x4tb and 1x2tb to fill the other slots (os drive is a 180gb intel ssd). My planning was to have mirrored 4tb as my music server drive and the two 2tb as my family/photo/docs drive.


    Anyway I started last night creating the raid array on the 2tb drives and it’s performance was 40MB per second and took almost 12 hours at a guess. Today I did same for the two brand new 4tb drives and again it’s max write speed is 40MB/s. This speed seems very slow and being both sets of drives are seeing same write speed I am beginning to think it’s a config/driver issue for the sata card.


    Anyone got any thoughts on if 40MB/s is actually reasonable for setting up the array and if not what I can do to potentially sort the issue.


    Formatting the 2tb array didn’t seem to take too long (maybe 20min) I can take exact time from 4tb one when it’s ready tonight or tomorrow.


    Many thanks
