    Wonder if I need to back two OMV systems - is there a way to name the backups folder something different from "omvbackup" ?

    Hello

    I run OMV on R Pi4 and have a USB Seagate Backup Plus 5TB Portable Hard Drive connected and working fine.

    Now I got the second identical drive and wanted to connect it as well.

    However, when I do my first drive gets disconnected and no USB drives…

    I do get monitoring emails like:

    Yes, I said that. The usbbackup plugin is meant to backup a usb drive when plugged in. It is unmounted when disconnected. SO, a usb drive used with that plugin is not treated the same. Since I don't know what your use case, I can't…

    You said

    "Unless you are using the usbbackup plugin, a usb drive is not treated any different than a sata drive. So, you should not be disconnecting it. You may disagree but that is how OMV is designed."

    So IIUYC the usbbackup plugin could help to avoid…

    One event is still stubborn:

    Service: proftpd
    Event: Does not exist

    It's OK I disabled process notifications for now.

    Just to make sure - the usbbackup plugin (openmediavault-usbbackup 5.0.5-1) would help me avoid this snafu ?

    Well I removed all refs from /etc/openmediavault/config.xml and FS looks ok now.

    The only leftovers, I get email from monitoring like after reboot:

    I tried to start the remote mount again on the ubutnu server and it did not remove errors.

    Then tried removing smb share, shared folder and the remote mount and still no love

    I seem blocked by this error "Could not fetch a matching mount point

    What’s then the proper way to turn off an usb drive?

    How to clean up the leftovers now?

    Thank you 🙏

    So the remote mount is on a ubutnu server and I unmounted it there, ejected USB.

    Is this the proper "turn off"?

    I think the main issue is that OMV does not say and offer any information about it.
  • chudak

    .... and after reboot OMV shows that remote as alive

    So UI does not actually reflect the true condition....

    Anybody can comment on this please ?

    I have a remote share that was turned off and I see errors and OMV unable to show file system for any drive.
    Is it as expected ?
    Sounds odd ...

    I have an OMV vm with a ntfs drive connected to USB

    The problem is it won’t automount after reboot.
    Manual mount works fine tho.

    I have not added it into /etc/fstab as was thinking that OMV should manage this automatically

    It has in fstab

    OMV does not work in LXC. OMV as a VM works perfect.

    Hello

    I am contemplating what is better to use OVM as a VM on proxmox or LXC container.

    Any suggestions are appreciated
