Nope, all files/folders are accessible that are in this area. The dead drive/folder was once part of a Union File system, but it doesn't show up in the Union area any more.
An HD died on me and I physically removed the drive. When I go to Storage > File Systems> I still see my old drive there and it is referenced (id = /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD80EFAX-68LHPN0_7SGM8AAC-part1) . I checked SMB and all possible shared areas and it is not shared. I even installed resetperms-plugin, and the file system doesn't show up as an option to reset (attached).
How can I clean this up before I set up a new drive?
FYI - The old/dead drive was media only, no sort of settings or config files to be shared to begin with.
The drive in question had a similar problem in November, I ended up formatting it and it was good to go since December. Previous conversation:
Today, it is acting funny again, here are my logs:
It still shows up under my drives but it is not mounted. This is the log when I attempt to mount it: https://pastebin.com/mMvu82Yk
SMART status of the drive - https://pastebin.com/frx8y5Tb
So what y'all think? Should I have learned my lesson last time and trashed this thing? I'm hopeful I can continue to use it, lmk!
(it was just media, nothing important luckily)
drive 1 : 50 gb
drive 2: 80 gb
drive 3 (new): 7.5 TB
I'll try to manually make the folder structure to see if that is it.
I have another thread of a potential bad HD. I was able to format and OMV recognizes it, so possibly good?
Anyways, I mounted the new drive and was able to merge it w/ my 2 existing drives. I have a create policy of "Most free space," but the new movies I downloaded are still writing onto the old drive. Available space has not decreased when I look at the GUI.
I used winscp to browser /srv/(new_HD) and of course nothing is in there. I was able to drag/drop a few files, and it took it fine.
My theory/guess is the new movies are going to the old path of /media/movies and that is not on the new_HD. I assumed it's supposed to create that automatically since it is merged.
thanks for confirming
Luckily, only 100 gb or less was used for media.
Is this how to run the SMART? I did 2 ways:
I went into server ip > storage > smart > (i left it disabled in settings) > Devices > Select sdd in question > Edit > Save/apply > Then Information and I get this:
I went into server ip > storage > smart > (i left it disabled in settings) > Scheduled Test > Select sdd in question + Create schedule> Save/apply > Then RUN and I get this:
oh no! u think a bad HD :(? it's only a week old and it was working fine before I started messing with the union stuff. Ok, i'll try a few things on the HD
Installed an HD a week ago, and things were working. I'm also using union file system (3 HD's merged). Today I changed the policy to "most free space," then it wouldnt save. Rebooted and it still wouldn't save, then the HD does not appear to be mounted. I had to revert changes, but it still looks like this:
Heres the log/error of when I attempt to mount it:
Error of failed config changes of changing the policy:
Thanks! I posted my same Q on other avenues and found out what I was doing wrong, or a good approach to this.
Placed the binary file in /usr/local/bin, logged in as root to do chmod +x command, logged in as stevedawg to ./xteve
Thanks all for your help.
If you executed it as root, that is your problem.
Do you have a user on your NAS, or just the root user?
Thats my problem, sorry if this is extremely newbie Q, but how do I do it. Check out my screenshot (from windows pc) - https://imgur.com/q3zztzs
1 - I Used Winscp to copy the binary into a 'xteve' folder I created as root
2 - I have my stevedawg85 account added into various groups
3 - I used terminal to follow those steps but it's not allowed
You access the web interface with IP:34400/web
The xml you get without /web is normal behavior.
Thanks, you are right, I did eventually get in and play with it some. But I still want to figure out the install as non-root. Because it seems to randomly crash.
Admittedly, Yes I am a major Linux noob, so that's probably my problem.
I 'installed'/started Xteve as root and realized this was not recommended. How can I undo what I did? I used Winscp to delete the .xteve folder it created in root. But now, when I 'reinstall' it, after I go to to provided host/port, IP:34400, it takes to me an xml looking page w/ txt and no gui.
I think I need help installing this as a 'regular' user. I created a 'dawg' account, but how would I install the xteve bin file as dawg. I tried, but says dawg doesn't have access to certain folders. I'll have to re-run it for the error msg.
my /dev/sda1 is 99% full after running df -h . What command cleans some of that up?
I have an HP server running OMV. I plugged in a VGA on the server and OMV starts up and prompts me to log in. But when I go to a pc and try to get to the GUI, it doesn't work, or when I try to get to any services, sab, emby, sonarr, etc, none of the pages load. Already rebooted 2-3 times. It was working fine last night, then this AM this prob just started.
Does cache build up somewhere? and how can I clean from the terminal?
I'm sure I found the issue, I am near capacity of my OMV boot drive. I allocated 20 gb, and already have 50 mb remaining. I ended up doing clean apt and that how I was able to get in.
My next Q - what can I remove from my OMV drive? I thought they are supposed to stay under 1 gb
I've had it installed for a few months now and things have always worked. Randomly this morning, I couldn't get into OMV. I checked the GUI, and was receiving this error.
I used omv-firstaid, retyped in the same info, marked it static ip, and now the "network unavailable" no longer appears, but it's still not properly working. I can ping the server, Sab boots up and I can navigate there, but Emby doesn't work along w/ a few others. Also, after I attempt to log into the Web interface, it just flashes and nothing changes.
hmmm, thanks. Here I was thinking scheduling shutdown and bootup times to help the Drives. Its on 24/7 at the moment, maybe I'll leave that part of it alone.
Thanks for the info, I'll keep this in mind!
I tried from 2 different client PC's and it worked on the other. no idea why machine #1 doesn't work, oh well, I'll use #2 when needed. I like OMV, i mean, it's the only thing I tried, but I'm sticking with it.
My logic - I want as little stress as possible on my media drive, and downloading can be handled by a Download drive (I set up a separate partition on OMV boot drive). So my question is, is it best practice to have a separate drive to handle the downloading like I have set up? Then have Sab move it to a unzipping folder that is on my media drive then allow radarr/sonarr to do the rest?
What are the best practices or am I overthinking it? Do y'all simply have your media HD do the downloading etc?
I put my big boy pants on (and was impatient, not fully live anyway) and followed thru with what I said above. Additionally, I also had to find the uuid and remove them from the <sharedfolder> area.
Thanks! I have cleaned out the unnecessary clutter. Settings changes continue!
