    I did forget to unmount the drives from the OMV 2xx before moving them to the OMV 4xx box,. I hope this is not a fatal mistake for the raid 5 array? It seems to have mounted in the OMV 4xx box fine. But OMV 4xx will not let me mount the single drive file system without formatting the drive first. Can I put the drive back in the OMV 2xx box mount it then unmount it before movint into the 4xx box?

    I built another OMV box with with 4.1.13-1 (old box was 2x stoneburner). The 2x raid 5 array transferred to 4x fine but I have another 3tb drive from the 2x box (not in the raid array) that is detected but does not show up in the file systems. I DO NOT want to have to format the 3tb drive unless necessary. Is there problem with drives or file systems when moving to OMV 4x?

    I am having hardware issues. Twice my OMV server has shutdown with the fans running full blast (everything else dead) I think it is most likely a power supply or MB failure. This has happened twice so far and after I reboot the server all is fine and data is fully in tact. I attached the Cron email sent but I am not sure what it means. Any help would be appreciated. May be time for a MB upgrade and OMV 4.


    I am wanting to upgrade to OMV 4 from 2.2.14 and would like to know if I could have any known or unknown issues? OMV system has a raid5 16tb array with about 7tb free. Is it a good idea to disconnect the raid5 array while upgrading to OMV 4? Will settings transfer over to the new ver or will I need to re configure? I am NOT a Linux expert so any help or is there another existing thread I could look at? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the info! When moving the array to the new MB Should make sure each of the 4 HDD's in the raid 5 is connected to the same SATA ports as the old MB? Does it matter?

    I know this has most likely been covered before but Think its worth asking. I need to replace my underpowered core2 duo MB with something more capable (running Plex). I would like to know if the raid 5 array will transfer to the replacement MB? (I am using 4 4TB HDD's.) Will the array rebuild when booted as i cannot lose any of the stored data? I should backup data before doing this swap.

    I thought I would start a new thread as it is somewhat important! After I ran the latest update for Plex from Update manager my Plex is no longer working. Errors when trying to enable/stop service. I am not a Linux expert so im hoping for some help on where to begin to revert to previous Plex or repair this latest update! I see others are having the same issue!


    My Plex is broke too after updating from update manager this morning!

    Got this error trying to enable/stop service!
