It depends on which version are you on.
If you're already on OMV1.x, just

Code: Select all

apt-get upgrade
But I think you gave up? did you ever got it running?

perhpas this helps for re-install:

Remember: format data in EXT4, and then you need to trick OMV editing the config.xml to add the mount properly

I never managed to edit this file.

It seems it's a file created at system boot. When you plug the HDD into another device, there are no such files.

Tried a lot, but could never edit it.

Anyway, I was having so many issues, I gave up. Restored factory firmware and I had to be happy with that.

Maybe I'll try installing OMV 1.10 and see what happens.

Hello there!

Here are some reasons I quit:

- It took me a lot to make it recognize the data partition (devices), even with ext4 (got it running after some time later thanks to OMV devs);
- Issues when creating "shared" folders;
- Issues when trying to enable and run OwnCloud (main reason I was trying OMV);
- System crashing when copying large amount of files;
- Slow Samba speed (really slow, like 10% of the usual box speed with official firmware)

and so on. Maybe I'll try 1.10 if I figure out how to do it.

If I run apt-get update, it will upgrade OMV to 1.9... that was what I did before. :(

Many thanks ptelleria for the link. My status leds are OK.

My rc.local original file:

Code: Select all

[root@DDE01:~]$.cat /etc/rc.local
#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.

exit 0
And now, my rc.local edited file:

Code: Select all

[root@DDE01:~]$.cat /etc/rc.local
#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.
if [ -d /sys/class/leds/status:system:ok ]; then echo none > /sys/class/leds/status:system:ok/trigger
fi

exit 0

Hi.

I'm new here and own the Iomega Home Media Cloud Edtion ... but mostly stop using it because the stock firwmare is so bad as soon as you try doing something else than accessing the files over CIFS :roll:

I'm glad that I found this thread but just wondering what is the safest/easiest way to go for going from Iomega's firmware to OMV. is the link provided in the first page the best way to start?
I understand that this won't let me run the latest OMV version but running OMV 1.0 or 1.1 doesn't seem straightforward, correct?

Yes, you can do that, but you'll be in a version that is no longer supported. you could download a 0.4.x DEB file for upgrading, but you'll be stuck there. And you'll need to disable the CRON job that looks fo updates as it will fail daily.
The above not a major deal if you install and it works, but if you face issues..perhaps you won't find support.

Hello all,

Any clue on how can I install OMV 1.12 on my HMNCE?

Previuosly, I've installed v 0.4 then upgraded it via apt-get update, but I ended up with 1.9 which doesn't work well due to the outated Wheezy modded kernel.

Thanks!

Hi again!
Latest version is 1.14, as in http://www.openmediavault.org/.
It seems that in the most recent updates, the error about mounting the data partitions, and the manual trick that had to be done has been corrected. But I haven't tried to test it, as I have it working seamlessly for the past few months.
Just to double check:
1- you're running Wheezy already, right?
2- could you confirm your current OMV version?
Mine:

3- please post your etc/apt/sources.list

Hello again, ptelleria!

Weird, did they removed 1.9 logs from the main page?

Anyway, when clicking in Download, here it is:

I do not have Wheezy/OMV installed anymore, went back to stock after it went messed up. I'm willing to install it again.

Anyway, I was using version 1.9. As I said before, I installed version 0.4, then ran apt-get upgrade and apt-get update then ended up with 1.9, which caused me a lot of trouble. For instance, it was freezing when copying large files.

In forums, it seems the best version for this NAS is 1.12, but I have no clue how to install this specific version.

For versión 1.x onwards (not 1.9, I've never seen it, and I started with 0.4 as well!) you need Wheezy, so you'll need to repeat the steps you did in the past (follow http://forums.openmediavault.org/index. ... -x-Wheezy/)

If not happy with Wheezy, you can re-install 0.4 from the DEB package. And before doing apt-get upgrade, double check the sources.list (or alternatively, install the 0.4.38 deb package and don't update your system) so that you don't move to an unwanted version

Packages I installed from http://packages.openmediavault.org/publ ... mediavault

I see installers there, but haven't tried in the HMNHDCE

Hello ptelleria,

Thanks again. However, how can I find out the right OMV 1.12 repository? Do you know what is the version name? I mean, since 1.0 it's all Kralizec right?

Was this ever confirmed? Is there a copy jobs application similar to what was in the Iomega software? I have a external drive attached to my HMCE that I back up to. Would be nice if I can copy to this drive without having to use the laptop.
