    Well it obviously sucks to have to re-install OMV after a hard drive failure, specially when the SSD is brand new :(
    But overall that was a very painless process thanks to the wonders of Docker.
    I made sure i had copies of all my stacks, so once i restored…

    My computer is an Intel NUC, the SSD is a M.2.
    So you "plug" that straight into the motherboard. No splitters or power connectors

    ok, no worries
    i figured it out, how to get your shares back. It's actually pretty easy.

    Mounting the drives I can do in OMV5 once it's installed.
    How do i go about creating shares pointing to those existing folders? Can that be done in OMV5 too?

    Sorry for all the questions, i'm still very new to this all

    UPDATE:

    Turns out my computer is not dead, but it's the new SSD that's dead.
    I tried moving the SSD to my old NUC and when i plug it in the computer doesn't boot anymore either.
    Then i put an old SSD in the new computer and it boots.

    I have never heard of a…

    Hi all,

    I just had my OMV5 setup up and running like i wanted on a brand new computer, but now the computer died. ;( Intel is sending me a new NUC at least, but that will be 5-6 weeks before it's here.

    I have another slightly older NUC. Can i just put the 2…

    That's how I do it here. My regular unprivileged user runs all my dockers and owns all the files they talk to.

    is this now the correct user to use for all my docker containers?

    Thanks for all your input.

    indeed 998 is the admin user for OMV, that's what most videos on Youtube use when they set up docker containers
    I've created a user, as you suggested in the other thread, and added SSH and Sudo Groups to it

    for that new user
    PIUD=1000

    this is the code i used to start the container.
    I've basically been following some of the Youtube videos for installing docker containers with portainer.
    they all use the PUID and PGID from the user you create when you set up Portainer

    And how do i go about checking if i have the right permissions?

    I've used portainer and a stack to set up the the Emby container
    i used the PIUD and GID from the admin account from portainer

    I should add that the folders TV andMusic are symlinks

    The Movie folder is one i just created in the Media folder and that one is showing up.



    I can even drill further in it:



    So the problem seems to be with the symlinks, any idea how to solve this? :)

    Thanks for the tip.

    I've never really used a Linux system up until now. Always just Windows, so i'm learning a lot.

    I've made a new user in OMV that i gave extra permissions, sudo and ssh
    I'll use that user to make the symlinks and…

    I think i found it :)

    I added the following lines of code in SMB/CIFS Advanced settings Extra Options

    follow symlinks = yes
    wide links = yes
    unix extensions = no

    Now it seems to work without a problem

    Yes i created them as root. I'm the only user at my home so i didn't see the need to create more users

    mmmm, another strange one.

    I've made a share called TV
    It's shared as TV
    but in windows the share shows up as tv

    For a share like AppData or Media it shows up normal in windows, it seems to go wrong when the share is in all caps
