OpenMediaVault is the next generation network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more. Thanks to the modular design of the framework it can be enhanced via plugins.

OpenMediaVault is primarily designed to be used in home environments or small home offices, but is not limited to those scenarios. It is a simple and easy to use out-of-the-box solution that will allow everyone to install and administrate a Network Attached Storage without deeper knowledge.

  • Hi, Seems to be a promising project. Unfortunately it did not work for me, it was a waste of time. I wanted to switch from Freenas to Openmediavault for the virtualization using Virtualbox and using a RAID 1 for my data. First of all, you have to find the default login/password, would be great to display it after the installation, how to change that password? It is not clearly indicated. The interface lacks of explanation of forms and options. Problems on the version 4.1.3: - a lot of error message throwing on the interface with access problem to tmp files (I don't remember exactly the error). - What I don't understand is why do we have to apply a configuration after we saved it? Isn't it possible to do it automatically ? - There is a transparent div stuck in the end of the body which I guess is the background of popup windows. I have to go in the html inspector to delete it and get the control again. It happens sometime after I close a window. - The thing that frustrated me in the all is the incapability to create a RAID, I don't even understand why I can see physic HDD, I can create new volumes but I cannot create a RAID. No hard drive displayed. So I searched on google, found the solution on the official forum which is OMV extra (dead link, so had to search it on the official site). I downloaded and installed the plugin, a painful to install it throwing a lot of error. Rebooted the machine and voila installed without any error. But surprise, there is no Backports tabulation as expected in the plugin... Ok, I assumed that version is too young and still unstable, so I tried the version 3.0.94 which is the one proposed as main link. In a word "unresponsive", nothing works on it except the authentication. It worked for some of people but for me it was a real waste of time and a bad experience, I would prefer to stay on Freenas. My last and better option would be Denbian and the command lines which I am going to do. As I said, this is a promising project, still too young though. Developers need to think to perform deep tests and before publishing a version.

  • Come out baby in the market. Will teach you a real good lesson.
