    A Picture tells a thousand words (so they say) - So my OMV won't boot, so I created a rescue USB http://www.system-rescue-cd.org/ and booted off of that. I can then mount and view the disk and it looks fine, even reinstall grub and check the boot partition... but still refusing to boot. Any ideas?


    I't s HP Gen 8 microserver, first bay is 250gb disk for boot / system then other 3 disks are data (currently removed just in case!!)

    Not really sure what's happened, but had some funnies so did an update and all seemed ok (except my xbox wouldn't talk to plex) so rebooted.... but it won't reboot, looks like grub is missing or something as disk seems ok. How do I sort/fix/repair the grub?

    OK well, went for it, moved all 3 raid disks from one to the other, keeping them in the same order, and raid was seen all correctly on the gen 8! However 1 disk has now decided it doesn't like working any more... grrr.

    I've had a Gen 8 micro server sitting around for a couple of months due to no time, but today was a day I had time!
    Current NL54 setup - 30GB ssd boot/os drive (sda) , 3 x 2TB disks in raid 5, running OMV 2.
    New Gen8 - 256GB HDD (sda, might swap to the above ssd once all running) running OMV 3. The Gen8 is a far more complex BIOS then the NL54 (which is just a PC), and I don't have the capacity to backup 4TB of data at present unless I buy a 4TB drive just to backup on. I had to make a single disk raid just to see a boot disk!


    Whats the best way to move and rebuild the array without losing anything?


    All advise welcome :)

    So I’ve just bought. Hp gen8 server to replace my old nl54 (decided on 8 as I can upgrade cpu)... I’ve had a quick search and the impression I can get is that I can swap all the disks around and should be good? Seems a bit too easy? Currently I’ve a ssd boot drive in the nl54 and 4 x 1tb drives running as 1 (software raid I think).


    Advice welcome before I lose everything ;)

    Ok, so been able to play less and less recently with my plex media server (1.03.2461) so ran "Sudo apt-get update/upgrade" to update and got to version 1.5... but still had a DEB download of 1.8 I could access. So downloaded this to the server and ran sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver... and chose to keep my current config, and it all died and I don't know what to do :( ? SOS!:)

    I can't seem to get or see any upgrades from the OMV web portal? Is there anything on command line I can do to kick an upgrade or clear cache for updates to latest 2.x?

    Was paying a quick visit to my parents to copy a few bits *cough* and decided to do an upgrade while I was there.... bad move :( I've tried lots of stuff and now if I use apt-get install openmediavault it fails with unmet dependencies :-
    php5-pam
    proftpd-mod-vroot
    php-proctitle

    All working fine this time?!!


    As to what I did before, I did have some issues as I ran the installer off an old build and had no network, so took a while to get it all updated and running. But then simply installed 3rd party plugins and installed as usual :( The only other thing was that when I installed it I had no 3tb drive in there, only an os drive... maybe I started plex to early and the media library failed or got confused as there was no save location, not sure.

    Just states "Starting plex media server: done" - but the services tab shows a red dot, and /etc/init/d/plexmediaserver status says it's not running... even the logs are not updating - I must of screwed something up, might need to remove it and reinstall.
