    Just an update folks, I was able to get temperatures working with OMV5 using the code and guidance provided earlier in this thread by sbocquet. Not as a plugin but by adding a couple of lines here and there, I expect I will have to repeat the process when the next update comes out but the pain in minimal. I needed to keep an eye on the temps on my new OMV5 hardware (BeeLink T4 fanless Atom 8500) that has replaced my trusty Odroid XU4 finally died after 3 yrs of hard service.




    Hi,


    If you want to make your updates easy, just save your modified files in a .sav files, than copy them after each OMV update.
    There are not much changes even none in those files...


    Cheers,

    Hi,


    I'm facing a strange thing.
    My certificate is just been renewed last week and I cannot connect to OMV WebUI due to the old certificat expiration date !!
    The renew was made by CLI with : certbot renew as I was forced to open my port 80 so that letsencrypt renewal works.

    But it seems that the new certificate haven't been update for the web server.



    How can I fix this ?


    Thx

    Hi Subzero,


    I've tried with another user (and root), and still cannot get the folder list.



    Is there a default folder to set in Filezilla when the connection start ?



    I have set proftpd to be in passive mode and permit root login.
    It seems to be some kind of folder rights to me, but cannot resolve it.


    Cheers,

    Hi,


    I have the same problem. Probably a misconfiguration problem but cannot find where…
    Proftpd is configured with OMV GUI without any changes. I have tried with Filezilla and WinSCP, both fail. The connection seems to happen but no folder is visible.


    Here is my conf file.



    Any idea of what is going wrong ?

    Hi,


    Just to let you know that I have successfully update my ZFS pool from kernel 4.14/ZFS 0.7.6 to kernel 4.16/ZFS 0.7.9


    1st => Update ZFS from 0.7.6 to 0.7.9., than reboot the NAS. The pool cannot be mounted (as expected) but don't panic ;)
    2nd => Update from kernel 4.14 to kernel 4.16, than reboot the NAS. The pool is mounted and healthy.


    Thanks all for your advices.

    A lot of the zfs plugin problems are due to the kernel and zfs versions. Moving to Ubuntu would definitely fix that. Even if zfs was a core feature (not going to happen), it would still have to be maintained. If OMV 5.x is designed around btrfs, I think it will be easier to make zfs "happy".

    I don't want to be rude, but please, save us from BTRFS ;)


    Honestly, I don't mind using one or the other, I'm not a church preacher. I just want something that works and secures my datas; but in 2018, BTRFS development is near death ;)...
    If Oracle (and I don't like them too ;) ) use ZFS in Solaris, believe me, it's because it's rock solid, unlike BTRFS. ZoL is probably not as solid as ZFS on Solaris, but clearly, it is far ahead.

    We will see...

    What do you mean by native?

    I know Debian cannot have ZFS directly after finished the install (and so OMV), but ZFS is a must have when you come to NAS storage.


    Maybe the Ubuntu way (and don't get me wrong, I really prefer Debian) should be consider as ZFS should be a basic feature out of the box for a NAS.
    I clearly don't speak for myself as I work all day on computers, but let's think of basic users.


    On the other hand, the ZFS plugin is doing some really good work for that... but when problems comes, and they come, you have to know what your doing. Plus you have to update/maintain the plugin...

    I only use Debian as server (work and home) and Windows/Mint LMDE as Workstation (home), and I just can be agree with you... OMV need ZFS as a 'native' storage solution.


    I work all days on Solaris 11 with native ZFS storage, and I cannot go back to RAID/ext 4 without feeling 'in danger'.
    File checksum is a must have, and so the snapshots... They solve some of my problem before it happens !

    I don't know…


    For me, I'm with a 4.14 kernel from the backports repo, which installed me certbot v0.23 as I suppose, which is running with python 3.x
    At the moment, this should work as it seems that I have the necessary packages to… but there is a mystery that I have to understand before my cert expired… :(

    OK... I found the problem with the letsencrypt forum...


    So, as always, it was so simple that I haven't though of it (RTFM !).


    My port 80 was only opened to my internal network in the firewall, and certbot need a file to be seen globally in order to renew the certificat.
    So I opened the port 80, renew my cert and closed it after.


    I have just asked if this can be done through HTTPS, else I will do the same in 90 days...

    Hi there ;)


    So, I was wondering if I can go with the ZFS update to v0.7.9 with my 4.14 kernel as I can see the ZFS package are available ?
    I have the linux-headers installed for that kernel.



    Do you see any risk ?
    If that doesn't work, can I rollback if I keep my current conf available at boot ?


    Thx


    P.S : Don't you think we could add a specific zone in the forum for all the ZFS stuff, like for RAID or in the Configuration section ? This could be a good improvment no ?

    I don't know…

    Yes, it seems to be the same except that you're running python 2.7...


    and me python 3.0

    I was thinking it was ;)
