Posted the thread resolved OMV 5.x mdadm no arrays found errors - faulty SSD to blame!.ThreadJust sharing this for future reference, hopefully to save hair pulling for somebody along the line!
I built an OMV box using a large case and a known good motherboard, CPU and memory. I was combining 10 HDDs from 2 old boxes but all drives were known…
Replied to the thread Looking for replacement for Asrock qc5000-itx/wifi.PostHaving had weird mobo issues for months and recently resolved them, first try:
1. Remove all cables, cards, memory, CPU. Remove motherboard from case.
2. Look over mobo very closely for any blown/bulging components or damage to copper traces.
3. If OK,…
Posted the thread OMV 5.x SnapRaid - An object with the property 'mntentref' and value '[blah]' already exists..ThreadI am merging 2 Snapraid arrays into 1. From 4 data and 1 parity to 8 data and 2 parity.
I added 3 of the disks from the old second array without error (using the Snapraid plugin in the OMV webui) but one disk threw this error and could not be added:
Replied to the thread resolved OMV 5.x External HDD fine with USB 2, not recognised with USB 3.PostI didn't really get anywhere with this.
In the end I shucked the drive (as it was out of warranty anyway) and put it in a slightly newer Inateck FE3001 enclosure.
That worked first time at expected speeds.
Reacted with to gderf’s post in the thread OMV 5.x resolved Change mountpoint from dev-disk-by-id to dev-disk-by-label.Reaction (Post)It is likely that your manually defined mountpoints inside the openmediavault stanza within fstab will not be permanent and lost the next time OMV processes a configuration change.
Look in OMV | Storage | File Systems and enable the mount point display…
Replied to the thread OMV 5.x resolved Change mountpoint from dev-disk-by-id to dev-disk-by-label.PostThanks gderf,
So far so good, I enabled that mountpoint column (very useful, never realised it was there) and those drives are using disk-by-label.
Once I was sure this was working as intended I rebooted and recreated my union/fuse mountpoints with the OMV…
Replied to the thread OMV 5.x resolved Change mountpoint from dev-disk-by-id to dev-disk-by-label.PostOK, answering my own question... I'd be grateful if someone with more linux wisdom could check this over though!
I went into /srv and did
sudo mkdir /dev-disk-by-label-disk6
sudo mkdir /dev-disk-by-label-disk7
sudo mount /dev/sdc1…
Posted the thread OMV 5.x resolved Change mountpoint from dev-disk-by-id to dev-disk-by-label.ThreadHello all,
I am combining two old OMV systems into a new box. For simplicity I've labelled the main drives (using e2label) as disk[1-8]
Under /srv/ I have 2 drives that haven't mounted with labels. This is output of lsblk:
(Code, 18 lines)
How can I change…
Posted the thread resolved OMV 5.x External HDD fine with USB 2, not recognised with USB 3.ThreadHello all,
I have a problem with a Samsung D3 external HDD, which is USB 3.0
With my Windows laptop it works fine on USB 3.
With my OMV box (a PC case with this mobo http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/H97%20Pro4/ ) it works fine on USB 2 but I connect it to USB…
