    Hey guys,I'm new here,forgive my poor english,I'm Chinese.
    One problem almost drive me crazy is that:my omv can't use any NIC.
    My motherboard is Asrock B85M-ITX which embedded a Atheros ar8171/8175 ethernet which can't be recognised in installation of OMV 1.0.20.
    So,I plugged in a usb rtl8187 wifi adapter,and it works well in installation.
    Well,here comes the problem

    Input:

    Source Code

    1. ifconfig -a

    it only shows the eth0--ar8187,it dosen't matter ,for it has no driver
    The point is,it doesn't show the usb wifi adapter.
    I thought it has no driver,but after a while ,I think of that this usb wifi adapter works in installation,so it must have drivers.IT' NOT A DRIVER PROBLEM!
    I Googled,found that I can do this to active it

    Source Code

    1. ifconfig wlan0 up

    Now input ifconfig -a,it shows wlan0.

    I just went on.

    Source Code

    1. iwconfig wlan0 scanning

    hey guys,

    i made the update from 0.5.59 to 1.0
    before the update, i used jmillers script to install all the plugins like headphones and couchpotato, sickbeard etc.
    before the update, i didnt uninstall the plugins. i installed the new ones through the webgui. but the dont work... so i tried to uninstall them again and get those:

    I'm experiencing problems with the plugin repository's, on the Raspberry Pi build, like others in this forum. As it seems, using the latest Rasberry Pi image was the answer.

    I'm trying to use the latest 1.0.9 version of the image for the Raspberry Pi, but I don't know how to prepare it.

    I'm on WIndows, using Win32Disk Imager, to install images onto a 16Gb SD card. I used 7-Zip to uncompress omv_1.0.7_rpi.img.gv, to omv_1.0.7_rpi.img From there, Winn32 Disk imager will write the image to the SD card. (All works fine with the exception of the absence of the plug-ins for LVM and others.)

    Trying to use omv_1.0.9_rpi_4gb.tar.gz is another scenrio. I can un"gz" it, with 7-ZIp, but the disk imager won't accept the resulting file omv_1.0.9_rpi_4gb.tar I have no idea where to go from here. How is a "tar" file converted to a "img" file?

    Thanks and Regards.

    I have never had a NAS and never used any kind of RAID. I am still going trough various how-to's, so I apologize if I ask something that may have been discussed before. I have about 19tb data at the moment, without any backup. As backup is not an option, I would like to make my data more secure using NAS storage system. At some moment I have been thinking about a pricey option of a server, large quantities of ECC ram, zfs file system with multiple zpools, ... ; but there are some characteristics of ZFS that I did not like when I learned about them. Then I compared the usual suspects (unRaid, Freenas, Nas4Free, Amahi, OpenFiler, ... , bare Linux OS) and OMV was the one that I liked most.

    I have some hardware that holds the data now in form of NTFS drives in Win7, that I intend to use for the build: MB Gigabyte B85M D2V, 4GB RAM, Intel G3220. Other elements I consider are Antec 902 V3 case with Silverstone CFP-52B bay devices for 12 drives, a RAID card and an 80Plus PSU. I have been…

    I have posted the wrong question in a wrong thread, but I have put that in order now. As I have mentioned in New OMV user, new build, I intend to make a RAID 1 of 10-14 drives.

    About RAID. I have no experience with RAID. About hardware RAID people say it is not good for home users because of the complications that come after a controller hardware failure. I was not able to find what happens it a hardware raid card fails and is replace with the same one. e.g.: I have found a PCIe card on eBay "3ware 9590SE-16ML" which is a hardware SATA II card, it is used and it is cheap in my opinion (130eur) for a 16 port card. I have also found many other same generation 3ware cards and some Areca card that have it's own processor and RAID microcode which should make them real hardware RAID cards (cards that were new a few thousands euros). If I buy two identical cards and have one in a computer and another in a spare parts drawer, will I be immune to a problem of RAID card dying on me?

    Another 4gb RAM is not a problem, i'll add it. I will not use the same drives where the data now resides. My plan is to buy drives in sets of two, format them, make partitions, add them as mapped drive to windows, copy data from a NTFS partition and a…

    OMV is pretty easy on the resources.... you might be better served by going w/ 8gigs of ram, but I imagine 4gigs would suffice. In order to build your raid, aren't you going to have to backup all that data, so you can format the drives? I would…

    It worked. I don't know how I missed that. I actually tried using 7-zip a 2nd time, on the TAR file, but I must I fat fingered it or over looked something. Thanks for the quick response! Regards.
