Support for OpenMediaVault
« on: December 13, 2011, 01:30:19 pm »
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I think http://www.openmediavault.org/ is a Debian port of FreeNAS.  May be worth looking in to.

Excellent!
I have had my eyes on Open Media Vault for the longest time. I even started to have doubt it would ever come out.
I am most certainly going to officially support it once I get to a chance to take it for a spin.
Great news.

Hi,

Im currently thinking about replacing my Qnap NAS with an OpenMediaVault installation. I think FlexRaid+OpenMediaVault would be a great combo giving me the best flexibility of data security and volume flexibility.

Have you had time to look at using FlexRaid with OpenMediaVault or when do you have any guess as when this would happen?

Do you think the FlexRaid+OpenMediaVault would solution be an OpenMediaVault plugin with UI or would it be command line based?

Thanks for providing a great product.

/Martin

I posted on their forum: https://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/openmediavault/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=368

Essentially, I won't have time to do it myself, but will assist anyone willing to do it.

I tried installing on OMV and got some errors.

Code: [Select]
log4j:ERROR Could not read configuration file [/home/redhawk/log4j.properties].

I then copied the log4j.properties from the install dir to the home dir and the errors did not appear however, the web interface never loaded.
I also tried installing

Code: [Select]
- libc6-i386
- lib32gcc1
- lib32stdc++6

or

- libstdc++.i686

Still no effect.

@454redhawk
The working directory for FlexRAID must be the install directory.
My guess is that is not the case with your install.

Code: [Select]
/home/redhawk/log4j.propertiesThis tells me it is expecting the working directory to be /home/redhawk. However, we know that FlexRAID is not installed there.

Wanna take a stab at a solution?

1. No, I don't have the time for that integration, but will support anyone trying to make it happen.

2. There is an issue with how you installed it or  how you are trying to run it. You need to start FlexRAID from its install directory.

What a monumental task. Finally got it going. I would write a how to but cant remember the tons of things I did.

Anyway, I cant add a server share. I select the folder I want to share and the "Add/Save" button is greyed out.
I have modified the share name to not include invalid characters.
Any ideas?
Are there other steps prior to sharing the pool?

Server shares are not implemented yet for Linux.
You have to share manually using Samba or NFS export.

454redhawk, good work!  I think FlexRAID and OpenMediaVault are both excellent projects and in my opinion it would be killer to see the FlexRAID on OMV.  It would make something like unraid totally unnecessary.  Unfortunately, I don't see enthusiasm from FlexRAID or OMV to get this done which is really a disappointment to me as I do not have the know how to do something like this myself.  I can only hope that someone down the line will see a benefit to this merge.  I think a merge like this will help the Linux FlexRAID development which lacks in my opinion behind the Windows version.

If you are willing to share some of your steps it would be greatly appreciated!

Hello everybody  ;)

With Brahim's help, FlexRAID runs on my OpenMediaVault (x64) home-server.

- create a new user in OpenMediaVault for FlexRAID
- install default-jre
- install fuse-utils
- install ia32-libs
- made /home/"username"/flexraid directory and chmod o+w on it
- add "username" to fuse group
- uncomment "user_allow_other" in /etc/fuse.conf
- make executable and run Flexraid.bin in  /home/"username"/flexraid
- chmod o=rx on  /home/"username"/flexraid
- cd /home/"username"/flexraid and type ./FlexRAID

That's all  ;D

Hello,

OMV just support standard linux RAiD, aka MDADM.
All disks are running at the same time (energy cost), no capability to access existing data outside the pool, no data integrity control (checskum) to fight against data silent corruption, RAID 5 black hole issues...
MDADM works well but can't do nothing against RAID5 issues.

OMV is a ready to use NAS OS.
To use FLexRAID on it, it needs avoiding using some OMV features like Disks management (all disks are monted in /media, it's better for rights mamagement at mount with fuse to use /mnt) or add new compopnents (jre, fuse...).
