    This statement triggers alarm bells because a fresh install for an RPI using the RaspberryPI Foundation RaspiOS (64bit image highly recommended!) and then running the well documented scripted installation approach should not require more than 30 mins.


    Did you add other applications too?

    My installation was a new installation already. :-) Therefor don't want to do it all over again. :-) Going to do a new setup with a new pi soon. Hopefully it will be resolved on the new installation. For not it's not limiting me, as everything still works.

    Yeah, added some app using docker and OMV CMS.

    I have enabled SMB on OMV (6) and added folders to the share. However, when I make a connection with SMB on OMV using my Mac, I get an e-mail with the following contents:


    The Samba 'panic action' script, /usr/share/samba/panic-action, was called for PID 18837 ().

    This means there was a problem with the program, such as a segfault.

    However, the executable could not be found for process 18837.

    It may have died unexpectedly, or you may not have permission to debug the process.


    I also notice that not all folders show their contents too. When I login through SSH or check the folders through File Browser (Docker install) I see all the files in the folders.


    Can someone tell me what the problem is here? I have installed OMV on Raspberry PI OS - Bullseye (32 bit).

    Give Photoview a try - i am quite happy with it ;)

    No luck with it. I can not pull the Maria DB version that is in the stack example. I run my on MariaDB in a container, but photo view will not connect to it (It's giving ping warnings). :-( Stuck now. Too bad, as it looks really nice.

    Switch DB image that has to be used and now it runs. :-)

    Smiggel nearly 2 months of testing, which did you end up liking? I almost went to Synology simply for Photostation but came to my senses. I'm about to start testing photo managements apps, and Photo Prism is at the top of the list and I'll test maybe 2 more.


    I stopped using it. I have issues with my raw format files. It does not convert properly or crashes my Pi. So, I am not so happy with it.

    Photostation is still much easier to use en does the conversion of all images better.

    Thanks for the suggestion. :-)

    It depends on where the pi placed to look fancy or not. ;-) I'll have a look at this one too, although I am still thinking about the pibox, because it's so nice small. Even though it's pricy.


    Suggestions are still welcome. :-D

    I am looking for a Raspberry pi case that will hold two sata slots. I have been looking of a while now and seen several cases, but they only have room for one drive.


    I did cam across this kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/pr…spberry-pi-storage-server. However, $ 250,- seems a little high for the case, although it's nice and small.


    Has anyone here came across a nice pi case that can hold two drives? having a hard time finding something myself.

    Thank you all for the replies. Good to see that I am not the only person here, who is looking for a solution.


    For now I am testing with photoshow. Will check out the other options too.

    Just curios....hyperbackup can ONLY be read by synology? if this is true, what happens if synology fails....do you need to buy another synology to read the hyperbackup?

    Hyperbackup allows you to make a simple rsync connection. It syncs everything over rsync without encryption, etc. It's all readable.

    Is your synology NAS the VPN server?

    If yes, connect OMV server to synology with VPN. Then just create an rsync job from OMV to make the copy of the shared folders. This job must be created with the IP and port of the VPN network. It will be something like 10.8.0.1:873 You should be able to see your shared folders on that network.

    If I remember correctly, hyperbackup has an option to back up to a remote target (not synology). That would be another option. You would have to set the rsync target in OMV and make the copy from synology. I think the first option is easier to configure.

    My Synology does not have a vpn server installed. It uses a VPN connection from a VPN provider, so that all out going traffic is through VPN. I can not connect from the outside back to my NAS, because my VPN service provider does not allow incoming connections.


    Hyperback does indeed have an option to backup to a remote server. That is what I had setup in my local network. That works just fine. Only, now I have moved my OMV outside my network in a remote location. I can still make a backup to the remote location, but only with an unsecured connection. I would like to be able to use a secure connection. But when I tell Hyperback to use a secure connection over port 22, it keeps telling me dat OMV does not allow a secure connection for rsync.

    So, I am looking for way to make it possible. :-) I just kind find the right instructions for it.

    So basically I want to make a secure connection to my OMV, and then do an RSync.

    I setup Hyperbackup on the Synology NAS to connect via rsync to omv.


    My Synology NAS is already running behind a VPN. I am not sure I can have an connection between my Synology NAS and my OMV. I connect based on IP address right now. But would like to use some kind of DNS. But for now the most important thing is to be able to make a backup from my Synology NAS to my OMV.
