    macom Do you mean just upgrading my current system, new system or upgrading to OMV 5.0?

    If you are speaking about the current system the Tiny is exactly that. Tiny, it can only support a Intel Core i7-6700 3.4G max. I wouldn't be able to add a GPU unless I add another external device. No PCIe slots to allow even risers

    New System - Nothing is stopping me from doing it aside was figuring out what i want to keep versus what i'm going to replace.

    OMV 5.0 - I'm on the fence about, I'm not going to go to 5.0 until I know what I'm going to do with the hardware side of it.

    Good Morning,

    I have pondered this question long and hard and I'm not sure what I should do. OMV (4.0) currently does alot for me, but might be a small amount to others. It is my File Server, Plex Server, Torrent Box, UNIFI Controller. It runs Readarr, Radarr, Sonarr, Jackett, all in dockers and other Dockers that support those programs. I know information will be missing that you all require and I will provide what I can when I can. I'm not sure what my goal is. I know that I currently use 3 plugs to power it all.

    I serve Movies, TV, Music to a Local FireTV 4K Device, The Same 4k Samsung TV when Firetv doesn't like the files, to 1 Samsung S3 Android Tablet late at night. I also have 1 remote user that has 2 1080P TV's with only 1used at a time.

    I will list my current specs below so it can help

    Lenovo Tiny M900

    i7-7600T CPU 2.8GHZ

    32GB So-Dimm

    1 M.2 250gb Primary drive (internal)

    2 Mediasonic HF7-SU3S3 Enclosures connected via USB 3.0 (43

    5 8TB WD Red/White) Shucked drives

    1 3TB HGST

    1 4TB Seagate

    Ok, So I think I found out the issue.

    This post goes over it from Feb 2017 Plex media server does not start if db volume in megerfs pool

    TL;DR is that If you are using mergerfs (like i am) you have to disable direct_io or place the config files on a direct hard drive. @ryecoaaron did say that he might allow drives to be used in more than one pool from the GUI but I do not see anything done on that front so most people might not need something like this or use the work around. Also @trapexit never added mergefs-tools

    I hope this helps someone else in the future


    I have decided to completely reformat my system and install using Techno Life Dad's Video's. I have notice that he has inconsistencies from his Openmediavault 4 install and complete setup: Current Version to his Plex Media Server on Open Media Vault using docker. Mostly it's a name convention of the folders (config vs appdata) I followed the Plex video to the letter and I get the following message "This site can’t be reached refused to connect." If I remove the /config line and let the system decide I can get Plex to come up and give me the welcome screen. Obviously something between the first video and this one has been skipped or missed if on my or his part. I have already setup the shared folders with everyone read/write. In SMB I have made it so Public is Guest Allowed along with Browseable, inherit ACLs and Inhert Premissions as enabled. I can make folders in the appdata section from my windows machine without having to use any username or passwords. In the Past I have just let the system decide where to place the config but if i do that everything goes haywire on a update. Please help me get this correct. I can get you any screenshots needed. BTW the only other variable i have is that I'm using UFS. Here is info from the Plex Log in the spoiler section.


    When i first loaded my media onto my Hard drives I used the wrong method for balancing out the files. I have learn from that mistake since then, While i was searching for something else I ran across software that would help me rebalance the files. the issue is I thought I made a bookmark but alas I did not. Can anyone help me relocate that software?

    looks like it's available just not installed? so just apt-get install par2 unrar

    root@openmediavault:~# apt-get install par2 unrar
    Reading package lists... Done

    Package unrar is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'unrar' has no installation candidate
