    Hi all,
    my OMV nas will have connection from Linux machines only.
    In this case please what is the typical, most secure and efficient kind of share I should create: NFS?

    Many thanks,
    and sorry for dumb question but total newbie here :P

    sorry but I'm a total newbie, with both linux and OMV.

    I set up my NAS with OMV (v1.11), connected it to the network (wired) and I can succesfully access the webUI through the browser.
    It's a WD My Cloud nas device, for the installation setup please see: WD MyCloud.

    I'd like to do my first test on my first nas and since I only have machines running linux at home I choose to create a NFS share (but I don't know if I did the correct choice).

    Here my steps:
    - created a user on OMV using same name as my user name on my linux box (is this really necessary?)
    - created a "test" share folder on the volume and gave read/write permissions to everyone (just in case, I want to make sure the test runs ok) with the following path: "/test"
    - gave read/write privileges to the user previously created (again.. just in case)
    - under services > NFS I made sure the service is enabled (left the default 8 servers number)
    - on the next tab I created a share by choosing the previously created folder from the drop-down menu, and set privilege to read write and left the default options "subtree_check,secure" and under client I put my linux box IP number (jus gave her a static address, just in case)
    - every step I did, setting were "applied" by clicking on the proper button on OMV webUI

    Now to test if I can access the folder on my linux box (Mint 17.1) I did the following:
    sudo apt-get install nfs-common
    and then
    sudo mount server.ip:/test /home/user/WD
    (the WD folder was created under Nemo file manager and I left default privileges)

    Unfortunately I get the following error message:
    mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting server.ip:/test

    Should I somehow specify the username/password created on OMV when I use the mount command?
    I already tried to reboot the NAS.

    Many thanks!

    PS: I just found out that when I go under the network > interfaces tab I get the following error message:
    Device 'ip6tnl0' not supported


    Error #6003:

    Hi all,
    my T5470 is on her way home.. I was trying to figure out by reading this interesting thread and the "Perky Towers" website if I'd be able to install a mSATA drive internally without adding the expansion unit.
    The card itself shouldn't take too much space.. I'm just not sure about the connector: maybe an angled one? and is it a standard 22 pin one?

    Did anybody succeeded without "heavy" mods?
    Are you using an expansion Devonian?


    really noob question.. sorry in advance!

    With all the thin clients, cheapest nuc boxes available, would it possible to install OMV in it and use external USB drives for storage in order to quickly build a relatively cheap 1 or 2 drives NAS?
    I'm not sure how reliable the USB bus could be.. but in case of a drive fail there are some pretty cheap replacements out there.. and even if won't look as the neatest of the setups, having to swap drives without open the enclosure has its appeal.

    Thanks for any suggestion

    a noob question:
    would I please be able to install OMV into and boot from an SD if I found my HP Chromebook 14 (FALCO) bios (upgradable to a Seabios) support it?
    This chromebook of mine has a SD/SDHC/SDXC built-in reader.

    What I'm thinking is: will it slow down the system (and therefore the overall NAS) performance?
    Regarding the wear leveling problem apparently "SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC and SDXC UHS-I Memory Cards" (and probably others) have a built in Advanced Wear Leveling and Error Correction Code engine enhances endurance and reliability (…ro-sdxc-sdhc-uhs-1-95mbs/) but I'm not so sure if that's enough of not..


    after a lot of searching I choose OMV for my NAS project (just started putting hardware/devices together).
    From a (linux/nas) newbie point of view I wonder if it's true that NAS4FREE and FreeNAS differently from OMV don't require a dedicated drive for the system to install into and, If so, the reason of that choice.

    I may think that the OS loads into the ram and, since in most of the cases the machine is supposed to be always on, the "system" drive is just needed for a reboot and/or a change of the settings.. if I'm right. If so it seems like this solution to be more fault proof because no extra drive required (but I may also understand that in most of home scenarios we don't need our nas on 24/7 and probably the OMV solution helps in preserving the settings).

    I know I'm probably missing some knowledge or misunderstanding a couple of things, thanks for any explanation or help in making me the picture a bit clearer.
    Beside that, as already said, I already choose OMV: I'm more keen in running a Gnu/Linux system and looking forward for the BTRFS support (any news relating the road map?).

    Thanks for your help/work!
