    Once I got all the correct settings on my server and clients the only problems I've had is the ones that I have no control over (I.e Plex issue on their end). Other than that it has been rock solid running on https://openmediavault.org since 2017. - Source: Reddit / 16 days ago
  • Is it worth me moving back to a Linux based OS?
    I've been running OpenMediaVault and Plex since 2017. I also use this machine for my file server for my personal files, Tautulli and it is my PiHole. My next project will probably be NextCloud on the server since it has been so reliable ...even on 9+ year old Dell 7010. - Source: Reddit / 17 days ago
  • Raspberry Pi Plex Server External Hard Drive Always On
    I'm running OMV https://openmediavault.org/ and in the web gui I have an option to disable the sleeping of each drive. (Mine spin 24/7/365 so that I don't have to wait for them to "wake up"). Each OS is different, a Google search may help. - Source: Reddit / 18 days ago
  • Easiest way to attach external storage?
    FreeNAS or OpenMediaVault can be run on something as small as a Raspberry pi. Plug in your USB HDD and go. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Why is Amahi not a popular home server solution?
    Anyway, I also use ZFS. My server distro of choice is OpenMediaVault, which has a great ZFS plugin that allows easy management via Web UI. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
