    I'm looking to see if the instructions are still correct for OMV 4.0, if something need to be change please let me know. Do i need to replace Jessie and wheezy to strech?

    Backup your sources.list file
    cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak Add a source to the sources.list
    echo deb jessie main >> /etc/apt/sources.list Add another source
    echo deb wheezy non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list Update your package lists
    apt-get update Install the required programs...Type y when asked if you would like to proceed with the installation and hit enter
    apt-get install par2 unrarAnd finally let's revert the changes made to sources list
    mv -f /etc/apt/sources.list.bak /etc/apt/sources.listYou should have unrar version 4.10

    Hey all,

    My plex took a crap and I decided I would just start over and install OMV 4.0, then Load Plex running on Docker. I set it up following Installation and Setup Videos - Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced and followed each step minus a couple of differences. When I attempt to go to the plex webpage i get a This site can’t be reached refused to connect in chrome. in IE Can’t reach this page Make sure the web address is correct. What am I missing. I have attempted to SSH into MY-IP:32400 and all i get is connect refused. I understand most likely this is a firewall issue, I have done the following and i'm still not sure what is wrong.

    Edit: I have reinstalled OMV and followed his first video plus the one for Plex to the letter. I'm not getting anywhere. please help

    If this was Docker you would just add the ports, depending on how it was installed I don't use Plex, but according to what I've found you have to open ports on the machine plex is on as this is for internal use.
    Have you installed the webtools and tried to connect?...That would be my first start.

    Re your images, you should specify a source and destination, in other words ip of where the request is coming from, and it's destination, where it's going to.

    This is the OMV computer that Plex Server is on.

    Good Morning,

    I'm attempting to install Webtools for plex (non docker) and I was wondering if I need to open up the ports 33400 and 33443 as the instructions say or does the firewall in this case not matter. I have never opened any ports on any of the other items I have install which of course might be error on my part. I know that although I have use OMV for many years I'm still what I consider a noob as I do not play with it much since it just works.

    *** I'm not knowledgeable about pfsense in any way shape or form. ***

    I was wondering if integrating pfSense into OMV was a plausible possibility as a option. what if any are the complications or would get in the way...


    Please describe your setup (number of drives / capacity / raid configuration) now, and the one that you are aiming after the upgrade. In this moment, the information that you provided in insufficient and I can't answer your question accurately.

    I'm currently running a Lenovo Tiny m900 with a i7-6700T, I have 2 4 Bay Mediasonic Proboxe's connected via USB3.0 Each Device has a assortment of drive sizes ranging from 2TB - 4TB in them. I'm currently running a Raid 5 for each of the Mediasonic's then using Mergefs to combine them.


    From my point of view, the only safe way to upgrade is to use another machine to create the new MD array, transfer the data, then move the array to the original system. The procedure that you pinpointed above is correct, but it doesn't take into consideration the fact that you need to perform one rebuild after each HDD is replaced, and the chance for an unrecoverable read error to occur is not negligible. I tell you this because on one from 3xWD RED 3TB (WD30EFRX) I started to see the Multi_Zone_Error_Rate counter increments after just 3 days of usage, and these are generated by UREs.

    If you have backups for the data, you can proceed following the guide, if not ... keep in mind, RAID is not backup, and that method involves some risks.

    Could I just transfer all the data to a external and then swap 4 of the drives out to make a new array and then put the files back? I have 6 of the 8 8TB drives so i don't have the full 2nd array

    Hey all,

    I'm currently purchasing 8 TB RED drives to replace the current 2tb,3,tb,4tb drives. I'm currently running Raid 5. What i want to know how do I replace the drives and still keep my data....

    Good Morning,

    I've currently purchased a Zyxel NAS326 and 2 4tb HGST Red's along with a HDhomerun. I'm running into issues when i'm using plex to record a show. I am receiving a "No write access to destination". I think it has something to do with the mount | grep cifs being 0755 but i have no clue how to make it 777

    User is plex
    has full access to the folder and is a admin account
    NAS sees that a connection from the OMV is active using CIFS

    OMV server
    Remote Mount is using Plex credentials.

    root@openmediavault:~# mount | grep cifs
    // on /srv/5b7f937e-4f88-4f0a-b75f-35ba4a35ef64 type cifs (rw,re latime,vers=1.0,cache=strict,username=plex,domain=NAS326,uid=0,noforceuid,gid=0, noforcegid,addr=,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755,nounix,serverino,mappo six,rsize=61440,wsize=65536,echo_interval=60,actimeo=1,_netdev)

    I think i solved it.

    I'm not an expert but i would think the extra arguments would be the spot for it.

    Exposed port should be kept at default, and the host port can be changed.

    Also, assuming you've used containers, make sure that both containers have unique /config folder mapping.

    Thats what I was afraid of. I have 8080 and 6881 respectively for exposed and 8081 and 6882 for Host (see image below) and I get the following message (in Chrome) This page isn’t working
    If the problem continues, contact the site owner. HTTP ERROR 401, I didn't even get a chance to put in the credentials yet. and blank pages in edge and IE. I thought maybe the port is being used so i tried port 26490 and got the same error
