    Hi guys!

    I'm about to setup one of these babies in two weeks. Due to an accident at work (looooong story about a VM running out of physical disk space, giving BSOD and no proven disaster recovery plan), I have recently done a lot of googling around, especially on backup and harddrives. From what I've learned, I would say that hardware RAID should only be used, if you can get a precise match of the card, should the ol' one break, otherwise you *could* be in a situation, where you have a lot of disks, but no access to the files on these...!

    Well, since I'm about to use a HP N54L, you can guess that I'll use the onboard SATA controller, and let OMV handle the RAID, and in my situation I think I'll do a mirroring / RAID-1. My question is if I should use TLER enabled drives? From what I learned the last few days, in some times they make perfect sense to have, and in other situations, they actually could do more damage than good!

    So - should I go for "real" NAS drives, or am I better off…

    Dear all,

    actually I keep getting mails from my OMV...

    the first is from Anacon an sends me only "/etc/cron.daily/openmediavault-mdadm:MAILADDR ...." If I read that correct, this will be solved with update to 1.0.30

    the other thing is, that I get 4 mails from monit alert:
    Does not exist nut-server
    Does not exist nur-client
    Exists nut-client
    Exists nut-server

    The Service seams to be up and running...

    how can I prevent the system to send these mails every time the system starts?

    But the stats / charts are always the same:


    Thanks for your help in advance

    When ever I try to make a filesystem on OMV I get this message:

    Source Code

    1. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1
    2. /dev/sdb1 is apparently in use by the system; will not make a filesystem here!


    I am able to fdisk on sdb and delete and make partitions. I have tested multiple types of drives. The webgui just tries to do it and obviously does not succeed. There are no RAID configurations set up.

    It should be version 1.2. 1.6 is the version from backports. Try apt-get install nginx/wheezy Don't worry about the default config dialog, just choose to keep it. If it goes back to 1.2 effectively, Then repeat the above steps that @ryecoaaron
